Engineered Springs For Military and Defense Applications
John Evans’ Sons manufactures custom components and provides standard springs for military contractors, OEMs, and the Department of Defense. Whether you require spring assemblies for a new product or replacement parts, our experience and knowledge in military applications makes John Evans’ Sons an ideal manufacturing partner.
Trusted Military Spring Manufacturer
Our history with military manufacturing began during the First World War when we manufactured springs for use in oxygen equipment control valves for military aviators. Since then, our relationship with the defense industry has grown, and we produce precision springs for a variety of applications.
Our torsion springs are frequently used for counterbalancing heavy armored hatch covers and cargo doors in M1A1 Abrams Tanks and Bradley Fighting Vehicles. They are also used to separate the first stage booster on sea-launched cruise missiles. Using constant force springs to counterbalance is also required for unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) launch and recovery mechanisms. Other industrial springs we manufacture are frequently used for fuel dispensing and aircraft refueling.
We have experience in creating difficult and unique spring products for our clients in the defense industry. Talk with John Evans’ Sons about designing a custom solution to meet your needs.
