Springs in Agriculture

Springs can be used as components in different areas, different in nature and with sometimes unimaginable applications. Here at Mollificio Anastasia we have been producing springs and small metal parts of any shape and size for over 40 years, supplying companies in all sectors, including the “Agriculture” sector.

Every day in fact we compare and collaborate with small and large companies operating in the agricultural supply chain, offering them springs for all types of agricultural machinery.

In the field of agricultural mechanics, especially the traditional mould, springs are frequently adopted not only as mechanical parts with logical elastic functions such as ploughs and sorting machines, but also as real working organs of the soil or of various agricultural products. These include the pick-ups of balers, rakes, tedders, hay tedders, windrowers, pick-up-packers, self-loading wagons and soil preparation machinery, such as elastic tine harrows.

The materials used for the construction of the springs must be commensurate with their intended use. These materials are characterized by different performances, for example carbon drawn steels (DH, SH, SM), pre-tempered CrSi alloy steels, stainless steels (Aisi 301, 302, 316), 51CrV4 steel.

When used as machining parts, but also as machine components, springs are typically subject to abrasive, erosive and corrosive wear.

In order to guarantee greater resistance, longer life and a pleasant aesthetic appearance, the materials used for the construction of the springs undergo various treatments, aimed at increasing the strength of the finished product, protecting it from corrosion and, more generally, minimizing the possible damage caused by a difficult environment, such as the agricultural one.

Among the major treatments used are galvanizing, thanks to which a superficial zinc coating is applied on springs in order to protect them from corrosion, and epoxy powder paint, able to create a very thin film on the painted surface that protects them from external agents such as water, corrosion due to the passage of time and atmospheric agents.
