With a tapered spring, the coil diameter decreases from one end of the spring to the other. As with all types of compression springs, conically tapered springs create the load by squeezing together, as opposed to spreading apart like extension springs. However, because of their unique design and shape, tapered springs offer greater lateral stability than standard compression springs, while also resisting the tendency to collapse or buckle under heavy pressure.
The fact that tapered springs feature larger coil diameters than standard compression springs does require an increased amount of force to achieve full compression. This characteristic can be extremely advantageous when used with spring-supported systems, as it can significantly reduce the level of bouncing.
Tapered Spring Applications
Tapered springs make an excellent choice for applications that are unable to accommodate a larger, cylindrical-shaped spring design. In general, they are the preferred option whenever there is not enough room for a straight compression spring. Their ability to provide enhanced stability in smaller areas makes tapered springs extremely well-suited for various automobile manufacturing processes. They are often found in many engine parts and components.
