At Bekaert, we manufacture spring wires for a wide variety of automotive applications. These tailor-made high-carbon or alloyed flat spring steel wires work for specific power spring applications like belt tensioners, seat recliners, window regulators and dampers as well as various hard-drawn shaped wire applications.
We offer various steel treatments, sizes and strengths to reflect your project requirements. Whether you need springs for comfortable seats or a functional engine, our spring wires will work for your spring requirements.
A common location for sinuous springs (aka: “Zig Zag springs”) is the car seat. Automotive seat spring wire needs to support the weight of the driver or passenger and make the area comfortable for sitting. When a driver rides over rugged terrain, sinuous springs will absorb the force and ensure a smooth ride.
Power springs are also critical for seat reclining mechanisms. Discontinuous recliners use a lever release configuration and power springs push the seat forward when unlatched. Continuous recliners use wrap springs with start/stop functionality.
These springs need to have specific sizes and strengths for proper energy absorption. At Bekaert, we create our seat spring wire according to your specifications. We provide solutions for manual and electric-powered recliners, and with our established history working with spring manufacturers, you can trust our expertise.
Bekaert spring wire offers superior durability for your car seat springs.
We can create a broad range of sizes and tensile strengths to support
seats, doors, window regulators and more. Our spring wires also have
excellent fatigue properties to ensure they last as vehicles age.
We adapt the carbon steel to your application with different development processes, including:
