Hourglass compression springs derive their name from their distinctive shape that features a narrow diameter in the center and a wider diameter on either end. This concave shape makes it easier to center the spring over a larger hole. It also enables a lower solid height than a constant diameter spring. Depending on the intended use, the ends can be left open or closed. This type of spring can also be designed so that each coil will nest either wholly or partially into an adjacent coil.
Hourglass Springs Applications and Benefits
In general, hourglass springs make an excellent choice for applications requiring greater lateral stability, superior resistance to surging and a low solid height. Industries that make use of hourglass springs include automotive, consumer goods and aerospace. The railroad industry also implements them in the manufacturing of locomotives, freight cars and metro trains.
Key hourglass spring benefits include a high load capacity and the ability to handle large tensional, horizontal and conical displacement. Because of their solid design and construction, hourglass springs also provide a long service life and reduced maintenance costs, along with eliminating the need for complex air supply systems.
