Keats Manufacturing designed and built a large series of annealed spring steel link cartridges for use in military applications.

Based off a customer supplied print, we formed these products pictured here from .040” thick ASTM A684 1047 annealed spring steel, meeting tight precision tolerances down to ±.005”. In order to fulfill our client’s strict product requirements, we also used AutoCAD software to design the tooling for these units. Successfully meeting military specifications, we designed, built, and delivered 1,000,000 annealed spring steel link cartridges to our client’s facility located in the South East U.S. within a 6-8 week lead time.
