The spring’s manufacturer made the precise tension and compression springs
The spring is specially made to store the mechanical energy. Generally the springs are made of the steel. But, some other metals are also used like the phosphor bronze and titanium for its corrosion resistance characteristics. Many types of materials are used by the spring manufacturer to manufacture the springs, depends upon the applications.
The springs are available in thousands of varieties and sizes and also the tailor-made designs to fulfill the client’s requirements.
Various types of raw materials are used for the various types of springs, depends upon the application and also upon the application field. It is made hardened for some special applications. The small springs can be made from pre-hardened stock, while larger ones are hardened after fabrication.
In torsion springs, the load is the twisting force, applied as an axial force. The torsion springs are designed to be twisted rather than compressed or extended. As the load is applied to the torsion spring, the end of the spring rotates through an angle.
The two types of torsion springs are available in market. The single coil and the double coil torsion springs.
The tension spring stretches as the load is applied to it, while the compression spring gets shorter as the load is applied to it.
The air spring is mostly used in the automobile industry. It’s like a air bag.
The compression spring is used in lawn movers, medical devices, electronics devices, cell phones and musical instruments.
The tension springs have its many industrial applications like electric switches, automobile parts, mechanical seals, oil seals, weighing scales and electronic parts.
