What does a Machine Spring Former do?
Sets up and operates machine to form leaf-type spring leaves: Installs upper and lower dies in machine, following leaf spring, using handtools. Positions heated leaf blank onto lower die, using tongs. Depresses pedal or pulls lever to force dies together, forming curved leaf. Immerses leaf in quenching oil for cooling and hardening if machine does not perform this function automatically. May heat leaf blanks in furnace and form them by hand.
