Compression Spring 2017

Ordering Compression Springs

The basic information needed by Katy Spring in order to assist our customers with compression springs is material, wire size, free length, number of coils, travel, diameter, end types, finish, works over, works in, and maximum solid height. Katy Spring can assist our customers in determining design parameters for compression springs if only partial data is available.

Music wire, hard-drawn MB, oil-tempered MB, and stainless steels are the most popular materials. Alloy steels such as chromium-silicon and chromium-vanadium are often used. Copper-based alloys such as beryllium-copper, phosphor-bronze, and spring brass are occasionally required, as are the proprietary nickel-based alloys such as Inconel, Monel, Ni-Span C, Elgiloy and so on.

Determining wire size is part of the design method process for compression springs. The methods used for design evolved from trail-and-error method observations all the way up to today’s modern methods of spring design software which is incorporated by Katy Spring to assist our customers with wire size selection.

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.

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.

Katy Spring & Mfg., Inc. is a custom manufacturer of springs and wire forms, located in Katy Texas.

A few weeks ago, I was taking a customer through the shop, and as we were observing compression, extension, torsion, flat and other springs being manufactured, I started to share a story or two of some of the early days of Katy Spring.

This customer, who uses compression springs in their valve components, got a kick out of one story I told about the first time we received half-inch chrome silicon spring wire for a draw-bar spring assembly job.  This customer suggested I share this story with our other spring customers, so as I think of them I will share them.

Eleven years ago Katy spring & Mfg. had only been in business for a little over a year.  We have spring lathes that can cold wind springs up to .625” spring-tempered wire diameter.  The draw-bar spring required .500 inch diameter spring material so no problem, except most spring manufacturing requires support equipment. Spring lathes use wire reels for larger-diameter spring wire to contain and safely feed the wire into the spring lathe… and we did not have one, because the largest diameter spring wire we previously ran was .250”.

When we received the chrome silicon spring wire, we unloaded the roll of wire, and like a lot of spring manufacturing, started to get creative.  The spring wire roll was banded with metal bands and if we were to just cut the bands with no reel, it could be very dangerous as the spring-tempered wire roll would unravel like a mad octopus of spring wire, damaging or injuring anything in its circumference.

So we drug the roll of wire out to the yard with a fork truck, wrapped it with rope, cut the metal bands (the rope held the roll together… thank goodness) threw gas on the rope, lit the rope, ran way, and a few minutes later we had a heap of half-inch spring wire.  We took a torch out and cut the wire into its developed lengths and ran the draw-bar spring job.

Soon afterwards, we got a spring lathe reel, and today no worries.

It’s just another example of “doing whatever it takes” at Katy Spring.

A compression springs are coil springs storing energy when they are closed by a force. Compression springs are designed to operate with a compression load, so the compression spring gets shorter as load is applied to the spring. Stored energy in the spring is brought back to original state after force is removed to lengthen the spring and push against the object that compressed it.

 

Mechanical springs are of many forms out of which most common spring is compression spring. Compression springs can further be categorized as Conical Springs, barrel springs and hour glass spring to name few.

 

From the simple writing pen on car, compression springs have many uses, The function of each small or big machine is determines by the compression spring. For example, how would a ride in that car feel if there were no compression springs to support the shock absorbers?

 

A compression spring has elasticity born in the spring wire  used to store mechanical energy. Compression springs are usually made out of spring-tempered steel or from age-hardened spring material. Small compression springs can be wound from pre-tempered material, larger compression springs are made from annealed steel and hardened after winding. Some non-ferrous spring materials including; phosphor bronze, titanium, Inconel ™ Elgiloy ™ are used for compression springs requiring corrosion resistance.

A compression spring is any mechanical spring that creates resistance to loading, effectively reducing the size of the external mechanical device for which the compression spring is being used in, producing load in the process.
Compression springs are generally used in applications that require a resistance to compressive force.
Typical examples of compression spring industry applications include; Automotive, Aircraft, Appliances, Valves, Mechanical Seals, Medical Devices, Tools, Machinery and Equipment, Electronics, Agriculture, Aerospace, and much more. In fact, it’s been said that ninety percent (90%) of everything mechanically produced has a mechanical spring requirement and almost half of the mechanical springs are compression springs.
Compression springs are usually open or closed coiled, helical springs. Other types of compressions springs are also called conical compression springs, barrel compression springs, volute springs, hour-glass compression springs and Belleville or disc springs.

Though compression springs are produced in various sizes and shapes to suit each type of application, a number of factors are considered while selecting or designing a compression spring. The primary consideration is the compression spring material.

In designing a compression spring for an application, the helix direction, type of ends, solid height, and compression spring rate, total number of coils in the compression spring, free length, and wire diameter are also taken into account.

More to come regarding compression spring materials in future publications.
