These springs are made to help integrate components such as flanges, squares, hexes, rounds, bearing sets, gears, splines, bellcrank arms, threads and other machinable shapes into one piece. The springs also allow incorporation of consistent spring rates, precise payloads and multiple integral coils (multi-starts) that ordinary springs don't provide. They can be used as compression, extension, torsion, lateral translation and lateral bending springs, can be made out of machinable metals such as aluminum, stainless steel and titanium. They have no internal stresses to overcome before deflection occurs, since they can be configured to provide very precise, linear deflection rates with almost no residual stresses.

Why would the biggest connector company in the world design and build the first fully functional 3D-printed motorcycle? To show TE Connectivity's engineers what the technology can really do in making working load-bearing production parts, and free up their thinking when approaching design problems.
The enhanced ST8 includes new functionality designed to help users accelerate design speed and improve the user’s ability to leverage synchronous technology. The update offers greater flexibility in choice of platform and purchasing options, according to the company.
“How can European standards affect me, especially since I only use machines built in the US?” This is a common question, and one way to answer this is to look at how machine safety is enforced, where the information comes from, and how well you can prove you followed the regulations.
