Titan Spring’ Inc. has been making various custom configurations of this seat springs for several customers who manufacture aircraft interior seats. We have been serving this industry going on 40 years so think of us the next time that you reach for the magazine in the pocket.
WIRE FORMED LITERATURE POCKET SPRING INSTALLED ON SEAT BACK
At Titan we call them FRAMES to differentiate them from other springs because they are somewhat unique, This product has both a wire form component as well as a coiled spring. The coiled portion of the spring looks like a torsion spring but does not function as one. The purpose of the coils act more like an extension spring opening slightly as the passenger opens the seat back pocket then springing back when released. The small loops or eyes as we refer to them are for mounting the FRAME to the seat.
Formed wire parts are used in many places on, in and around commercial airliners. Over the years we have made them for cockpit and galleys installations. Some wire forms are welded assemblies for specific uses which Titan makes complete in house.
Titans in house capabilities for manufacturing assemblies include CNC machining, metal stamping, flat metal forming, wire forming, wire welding and of course coiled wire products.
We also outsource components that are part of customer assemblies we do not have the in house capacity or capability to manufacture. All requirements of the AS 9100 Rev. “C” Standard are flowed down to any subcontractor that we contract with.
Titan Spring has expanded our CNC machining capability adding a 4th axis to our HAAS machining center. The 4th axis allows us to do more operations during the machining cycle with minimal setup. Our customers changing needs necessitated Titan expanding our capabilities to include CNC machining. Titan has provided custom assemblies for our customers since our beginning 60 plus years ago. Originally we outsourced the machining operations to qualified sources and still do on some operations we cannot do on the HAAS machine. To control the lead times better it made sense to purchase our own machine.
Titan also has approved CNC machining sources to outsource operations that we cannot do in house. AS9100 requirements are flowed down to these contractors and parts are 100% dimensional inspected by Titan QA personnel. Documentation and certifications are checked for compliance to the customers blue print or specifications.
Since 2007 Titan has consistently achieved certification to the AS9100 standard. Starting with revision “B” followed by “C” and now as of March 2018 revision “D”. There have been no major findings charged against Titan ever! We are committed to the standard and constantly do internal audits to insure compliance in every aspect of our company.
Precision tight tolerance springs for the aviation, defense, and space industries for over 60 years.
