Nested Compression Springs

 

A nested compression spring is a compression spring that fits inside of another compression spring to achieve more force.  Many automotive valve springs are nested as well as suspension compression springs on railroad cars.

Obviously, one compression spring needs to be smaller than the other compression spring, nut the other thing to remember is that they have to wound in opposite directions.

For example, if the outside spring is left-hand wound, the inside spring needs to be right-hand wound.

The other thing to keep in mind is clearance.  Remember when a compression spring deflects, its outside diameter expands.  Room need to be allowed for the inside compression spring to expand.

Spring Materials

The first thing to consider when designing a compression springs, torsion springs or extension springs is to ask if the spring wire size exists.

There are common spring wire sizes as well as special sizes, made-to-order which can be expensive. The common sizes are available within the intervals ranging from a couple of thousandths of an inch to sixteenths of inches for the larger sizes.

Spring wire can be bought in two forms; coils and straightened- and-cut bars. Coils are the most cost-effective forms to purchase spring wire in and are available in stainless and carbon spring steel. Spring material in coils is generally sold by the pound.  The coils range from twelve inches to ten feet in diameter and generally require large storage space and special equipment for handling the larger spring material coils.

Spring Manufacturing Quality |Katy Spring Announcement

Katy Spring Announcement 5-22-12
Spring manufacturing utilizes various spring testing devices to check compression, extension, and torsion springs for compliance. The spring manufacturing testing devices measure such properties as the hardness of the spring-tempered metal and the amount of the compression, extension or torsion spring’s deformation under a known force. Custom manufactured springs that do not meet the specifications are scrapped. Statistical analysis of the spring test results can help spring manufacturers identify spring production problems and improve processes so fewer defective springs are produced.
About one-third of defective springs result from spring production problems. The other two-thirds are caused by defective spring wire used to manufacture the springs. In the late nineties, researchers reported the development of a spring wire test (FRACMAT) that could screen out inadequate spring wire prior to manufacturing springs.

Computer-operated spring coiling machines improve quality in two ways. First, they control the spring diameter and spring pitch more precisely than manual spring operations can. Second, through the use of piezoelectric materials, whose size varies with electrical input, CNC coiling heads can precisely adjust in real time to measurements of spring characteristics. As a result, these intelligent spring manufacturing machines produce fewer compression, extension and torsion springs that must be rejected for not meeting specifications.

Quality Automotive Spring Wire

Spring-tempered wire is used in a variety of industries, and everyone needs quality spring-tempered wire.

One industry in particular is the automotive industry. The automotive industry has requirements for quality valve-spring wire,
stainless spring wire, and flat and shaped spring-tempered wire.

In these categories are sub categories in for automotive spring wire requirements. These subcategories are oil-tempered spring wire, which consist of valve spring wire, clutch spring wire, and spring wire.
The next subcategory is oil-tempered valve wire, which include alloyed, high-tensile wire, and alloyed wire. Finally there is clutch and transmission wire, Oil-tempered chrome silicon, flat and shaped wire, carbon and stainless to round out the typical automotive spring needs.
