What Is A Torsion Spring

These springs are normally designed to exert rotary force, they usually “push” against the force that is applied. They come in many shapes and sizes to suit various industries or projects. Each end of the torsion spring is connected to some sort of component.

Key specifications include the spring rate, spring ends type, wire diameter, material, and the torque rating at a known position. Although the name torsion spring implies otherwise, they are subjected to bending stress rather than torsional stress. Once the spring is released, it will unwind as it makes an elastic rebound, and the stored energy will be released. Torsion springs can also statically hold components in place.

Manufacturing Process

Workers start with rolls of steel cord. The cord diameter varies in size depending on the springs being made. A metal probe detects the correct length for the springs after they are formed. A sensor detects the correct angle of each spring. A perfect reading is required so the machine can move the next spring forward through the channel. These machines can produce about 2000 springs depending on their size.

Stock Springs

A wide variety of torsion springs are available and made to suit a particular need. Typical applications are irrigation, door locks, toys, paper punches, electrical switches, hinge springs, electronics, firearms, seat belt ratchets and textile machinery
