What is a Coil Spring

Coil springs are sometimes also called helical springs because of their helical shape. Conical coil springs, compression coil springs and other coil spring shapes can be found in use throughout industrial and consumer products. They are important components in many different kinds of industrial equipment as well as in other tools.  Coil springs are important to the function of office utilities such as staplers and printers. Very small coil springs can be found in pens and mechanical pencils.  Very large coil springs are used in the shipping industry for docking equipment.  Coil springs are also called torsion springs and storing mechanical energy through a twisting motion. Mousetraps involve the use of torsion coil springs.

Other types of coil springs are compression and extension springs. Compression springs under load.  Extension springs lengthen under the weight of a load. Extension springs are used primarily to keep two metal components together, while compression springs are used to keep metal components from touching. The basic design of each of the two kinds of coil springs differs in an essential way. The spiral wires in compression springs are not touching when in a relaxed position and only become so under the stress of weight. In contrast, extension springs are designed so that their spiral wires are contiguous when there is no weight load and stretched apart under the stress of a weighted load. Coil springs can be made of various steel materials, including stainless spring steel hard drawn spring steel, steel music wire and oil-tempered spring steel. Spring steel is a special kind of steel with increased elasticity and return properties. The elasticity of a spring enables it to return to its original position; however, this capability diminishes with use. In general, the larger the wire, the stronger the spring is. Spring strength can also be increased by making the coil diameter of the spring smaller.

Nested Compression Springs | Katy Spring

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.

Precise Compression Spring Requirements | Compression Springs

Precise Compression Spring Requirements 

Compression springs are the backbone of the spring manufacturing industry.  Many people think of compression springs used in valves and automotive suspension for vehicles, there are countless more applications that require precise compression springs.

The rapid development in automotive and other technology,  does not surpass the spring manufacturing industry. Tighter tolerances, less available space and higher compression spring loads have pushed spring development a step further.

A PTP spring-coiling finger is just one tool in supporting the spring manufacturer in producing precision compression springs at a zero ppm level.

This new technology has not been implemented with wave springs.  Knowledge of the friction among the wave spring coils has not been investigated extensively.
