What is the typical lead time for a custom spring order?

The lead time for a custom spring order varies, but for standard orders (e.g., low quantity compression springs made from 0.125” diameter music wire), it’s usually 1 to 2 weeks.

Can the lead time be expedited for urgent orders?

Yes, we can often adjust our production schedule for urgent needs. If you need parts sooner than the standard lead time, please let us know, and we’ll do our best to accommodate your request.

What are the lead times for large volume orders, such as those from OEM customers?

For larger volume orders, we typically request a lead time of 4 to 5 weeks. This allows us to allocate materials and resources more efficiently.

Is there a way to reduce lead times for regular, large orders?

Yes, for regular large orders, we recommend a blanket order. With this arrangement, we build the parts and hold them in our warehouse, sending them to you just in time to maintain optimal inventory levels. This can reduce your lead time to as little as 1 day.
