The Spring Manufacturers Institute’s newly designed comprehensive spring training courses combine classroom taught content with practical hands-on use of SMI’s world-famous Advanced Spring Design 7 (ASD7) software.

The first training module, Spring Design 201 – Compression Spring Design, is the first element of the new training program. This four-hour class is now available as a webinar to you and your employees.

The course will introduce basic level compression spring design using SMI’s ASD7 spring design software, describe the seven-step spring design process, material selection, and tips to prevent spring failure. During this session, students will have the opportunity to seek opinions and clarification of any compression spring-related issues which they may have.

This class will benefit the student by increasing their spring design knowledge and their company by having an SMI-trained associate as part of their team.

The training course instructor is Gary Van Buren, Technical Advisor at SMI. Gary has many years of experience in the spring industry and is a leading spring design expert.

The cost for the program is $145.00 for SMI members, $425.00 for non-members.
