Extension Springs

Extension springs are closed-coiled helical springs that extend under a pulling force. Many design considerations must be made with extension springs including; initial tension, stress and deflection of hooks, hook end types.

There are a variety of extension spring end types. Machine loop and hook over center, side loop, full loop over center, no hook, extended hook, hook end with swivel, v-hook over center, double twisted full loop over center, and many more.

Compression Spring Load Testing 2017

Monday, February 13th, 2017

At Katy Spring, various springs are tested for load.

Here is a list of notes in addition to the above to keep in mind when ordering compression springs from Katy Spring:

1. The normal square ness tolerance for ground ends is 2-3 degrees.
2. Use conical compression springs when a short, solid height is needed to reduce buckling and surging.
3. Leave the wind direction optional for compression springs. Use right hand wound when the compression spring is being threaded on a bolt, one right and one left when two springs are being used inside the other to avoid meshing coils.
4. Specify a force with a tolerance (+/- 10 percent) at an exact compressed height rather than a definite deflection. Spring rate is the difference of two forces divided by the amount of deflection between those forces.
5. Make Katy Spring aware of unusual conditions such as temperature, corrosive environments, impact force, and fatigue life.
6. Specify the mandatory requirements only to Katy Spring. Leave the exact wire size and number of coils to the discretion of Katy Spring whenever possible.
7. Make Katy Spring aware of the spring travel and any solid height requirements.
8. After the parameters are determined, view Katy Spring’s online catalog for a possible match to your compression spring need.

Spring Manufacturer History

The History of Katy Spring

The history of companies is built by many short stories; some boring, some not. We’re going to try and tell the not-so-boring ones (in our humble opinion) about Katy Spring & Mfg., Inc.; a company in Katy Texas that started with a conversation that ended something like this; “Why not.”

These are the stories about Katy Spring, small bits of a bigger story that started in 1999. The stories are still unfolding new chapters every day, thanks to our wonderful customers. It’s written for our customers and future customers so that they can get to know our company, our employees, some historical background and philosophy a little better.

The stories are not told in chronological order. This blog is more of a “Readers Digest” about Katy Spring, written in whatever random order they appear. So without further ado, let’s get started with the next read which is titled; “Grab It.”

One of our favorite projects is to take a spring or wire form assembly and make it better, safer, less expensive or perhaps…all of the above.

Katy Spring is involved in a project right now in which 4 separate spring and wire form configurations are being used in an assembly that customers in the field are installing on their products.

These installations can be costly and so are the components that perform the function needed.  Katy Spring has found a way to combine all four spring and wire form components into one part; a huge savings is possible from this new design!

The key is that the assembly must be easy for the installers and that part of the equation is yet to be resolved.

Katy Spring makes prototypes for many customers, and the prototypes can be expensive due to allocation machine set-up times over just a few pieces can cause unit prices to be relatively high compared to an economical production run.

With that in mind, Katy Spring offers a discount for samples and prototypes in which the product needs to be tested for fit and function as is with the above-mentioned spring.

If the product trial is successful and a production order is placed, a fifty percent credit is applied to the production order helping Katy Spring customers save money on sometimes expensive samples and prototypes.

Compression Springs Manufacturers | Katy Spring:

A compression spring is an open coil helical spring that offers resistance to compressive force applied axially. Compression springs are commonly coiled as a constant diameter cylinder, below are several types of compression springs including:

Compression springs should be stress relieved to remove residual forming stresses produced by the coiling operation. Depending on design and space limitations, compression springs may be categorized according to stress level . Please view the categories below.

  • There are compression springs which can be compressed solid without permanent set, so that an extra operation for removing set is not needed. These springs are designed with torsional stress levels when compressed solid and they do not exceed about 40 percent of the minimum tensile strength of the material.

  • Another type of compression spring are those which can be compressed solid without further permanent set after set has initially been removed. These may be pre-set by the spring manufacturer as an added operation. These are springs designed with torsional stress levels when compressed solid that usually do not exceed 60 percent of the minimum tensile strength of the material.

  • Lastly there are springs which cannot be compressed solid without some further permanent set taking place because set cannot be completely removed in advance. These springs involve torsional stress levels which exceed 60 percent of the minimum, tensile strength of the material.
