If you’re looking for a tough, long-lasting spring for your most demanding applications, mechanical springs deserve careful consideration. A coiled spring specifically designed for tension and compression, the mechanical spring offers the benefit of increased travel, but with reduced loads. There are several mechanical spring variations, including:
- Torsion:A torsion spring system features a steel shaft with a cable drum at either end and one or two tightly wound springs. The load is created by the spring rotating around an axis.
- Extension:Resistance-based extension springs create the load by stretching apart.
- Compression:Compression springs operate in the opposite manner of extension springs; the load is created by squeezing together instead of spreading apart.
Mechanical Spring Applications
There are numerous mechanical spring applications, which vary depending on the type. For instance, torsion springs are widely found in garage doors, lift gates, spring hinges and control levers. Extension springs can also be used in garage doors and control levers, as well as screen doors, trampolines and wherever else a pulling force is required. Compression springs are used in ballpoint pens, valves, shafts and automobile suspension systems.
