Torsion Springs feature elasticity property through which they articulate mechanical energy to deflect a rotational torque. The action of these helically wound springs starts when they are twisted instead of pulled or compressed. These springs are prepared to order and are usually based on a sample or drawing.
Torsion springs are available in a variety of wire sizes, which range from 0.1 mm to 8 mm. Similarly, they are made from an assortment of materials and are available in different shapes according to the application needs of users. These materials include:
- Stainless Steel
- Music Wire
- Hard Drawn Steel
- Spring Steel
They are also made from other metals according to the specifications of users. However, when considering their shapes, the common shapes of these springs include conical, linear, and barrel.
Torsion springs are susceptible to bending stress despite their name. This is for the reason that the torque is being carried through the span of the wound material. The springs are available in an assortment of finishes, including:
- Gold Irridite
- Black Oxide
These springs are also available in different Leg End styles, including:
- Straight Offset
- Straight Torsion
- Hook Ends
- Short Hook Ends
Most manufacturers of torsion springs offer winding services, as well. They will fabricate the springs consistent with the specifications of their customers. They will often provide design assistance, as well, to their customers.
Any certified manufacturer of torsion springs will make them from wire metals and strips. They will be high in quality as well as uniform in size, which conforms to the requirements of users. The springs will be manufactured with pertinent standards and appropriate legislation.
Although torsion springs are being used in an extensive range of industries, they are largely used in the power solution and automotive industries. The springs are quite useful in high voltage power applications. In the automotive industry, they are mostly used in brake systems for valves, pumps, clutches, and etcetera.
