Performance Springs Ltd. is a specialist designer and manufacturer of engine valve springs and is at the leading edge of spring technology and innovation.The optimisation of exhaust and inlet valve springs improves valvetrain efficiency and therefore overall engine efficiency. This in turn lowers emissions by reducing fuel consumption, with improved reliability and service being added benefits. Working closely with global OEMs, engine design houses and aftermarket companies, all valve springs are manufactured to customer order. The applications range from passenger cars, race cars, motorcycles, commercial vehicles, off-road vehicles to the world’s largest diesel engines.
Using the latest 3D modelling software, parts can be meshed and animated allowing stress analysis to be carried out and the best shape and profile for manufacture determined. This process ensures the springs are optimised for a higher fatigue life and spring damping is highly efficient for aggressive dynamic environments. Performance Springs continues to expand the technical abilities of its R&D laboratory and recently upgraded its scanning electron microscope. Spring failure analysis services can be offered, free of charge.
Understanding the failure mode is critical to preventing recurrence. Following a detailed technical examination, the findings are fed back into the spring design and production process in order to offer improved replacement parts. Performance Springs is the best choice for high fatigue and safety critical applications.
