Abstract

A process is provided for forming springs from soft metals. A soft malleable metal like dead-soft copper is formed into helices of any desired shape. These helices are then electroplated with a thin layer of metal of high elasticity, such as nickel, from an electrolyte which gives rise to a ductile deposit. In this manner speciality springs are easily formed into whatever shape is desired from a suitable length sired shape. These helices are then electroplated with a thin layer of metal of high elasticity, such as nickel, from an electrolyte which gives rise to a ductile deposit. In this manner speciality springs are easily formed into whatever shape is desired from a suitable length and diameter of dead-soft copper and with the electroplate of nickel.

In this manner speciality springs are easily formed into whatever shape is desired from a suitable length and diameter of dead-soft copper and with the electroplate of nickel. The thickness of nickel required is a function of the end uses to which the springs are to be placed.
