Metal Spring Clips

spring and wire clips

Metal spring clips (wire clips) are still the best way to secure an assembly together when screwing is not an option. OEM supply managers and design engineers rely on our design and material expertise to ensure optimal fit, function, performance and manufacturing repeatability of all our wire clips, spring clips, heat sink clips and sheet metal clips. Additionally, we can anticipate how your chosen material will form when we design tools to make your clip. This will provide assurance that your part can accomplish what it was designed to do.

 

Spring Clips

Spring clips are often used to hold components in place using spring tension. While the configurations are endless, most clips are designed to maintain a constant pressure while holding a component in place.  The material used and its thickness, as well as design, determine the spring clip's strength. Regardless of the industry, spring clips are always in high demand.  They can be found in almost anything from simple, old machinery to complex medical devices to satellites.  We can manufacture several unique styles of spring clips that are easily created to your exact specifications, they include:

  • Wire Clips
  • Heat Sink Clips
  • Clamps
  • Clasps
  • Closures

 

Wire Clips

Wire clips are generally produced with round, spring tempered wire. However, we can manufacture wire clips using shaped wire with no difficulty. The wire clips are then properly heat-treated and finished as required. Peninsula Spring manufactures custom wire clips for numerous types of customers in a wide range of industries, including:

  • Computers
  • Medical
  • Aerospace
  • Defense
  • And more

 

Sheet Metal Clips

Sheet metal clips are parts that are stamped, laser cut, or photo-chemically etched from a sheet of material.  In most cases, these blanks are then formed, heat treated as necessary and finished to print. Peninsula Spring takes pride in being an industry leader in the engineering and manufacturing of custom spring clips.  We can punch, cut, stamp or bend just about any shape imaginable.

 

Heat Sink Clips

Heat sink clips provide a secure hold without the risk of damaging the component or PCB, saving time and money. At Peninsula Spring we manufacture several types of heat sink clips for the computer and medical industries. Certain functional designs require the use of heat sink clips that are able to withstand high temperatures without the concern of fatigue. For delicate components, our heat sink clips provide exacting amounts of pressure. Peninsula Spring has the knowledge and experience to solve your problems!
