Veren van de  DSA Dutch Spring Association


Springs are indispensable and all around us: in the industry, in machines, in cars, but also in skates, safety valves, keyboards and aircraft. A spring provides movement, thereby returning moving parts to their original position; they measure and regulate forces and moments, but they are also applied in the connection of a wide range of products. A spring is often a metal product made of a belt or wire material. Springs come in a wide variety of types, models and versions. Its visual manifestation often depends on the application or the desired properties.
