Much like springs, flat springs and wire forms are generally fashioned from round wire or strip material, then bent into shapes engineered to meet a specific task. Rather than employing a coiled body, wire forms rely on angles and lengths to provide resistance and support. Hooks and bends often act as attachment points for the device.
Leaf, beam and cantilever are the most common flat springs. Peterson Spring divisions have the state of the art multiform equipment necessary to shape forms for nearly every application.
