Case Study: Designed a durable spring with extended life cycle to cut down truck downtime

Market:  Trucking 

Success Story:

spring truck back doorThis trucking customer is contracted with a large delivery service that requires them to have zero downtime with their trucking.  One of the common causes for downtime for many delivery trucks is from the repetitive and fast wear on the torsion springs that open the back door

In order to minimize and even eliminate downtime for worn out springs our spring was designed to have a long cycle life that supports the repeated lifted of the back door of the truck. With extended spring life cycles for the truck, the customer experienced a drastic cutback in truck downtime helping to keep them on the road more often
