Torsion Spring Production & Manufacturing

Torsion springs are helical shaped springs that exert a torque in a rotary force. The tails of these springs are typically anchored to other components. When those components are rotated around the center of the spring, the spring applies a force to push them back to the original position. These springs can be designed for use in a clockwise or counterclockwise rotation depending on the direction of the wind. Additionally, they can be made in many different sizes and configurations in order to meet nearly any specifications.

More About Torsion Springs

Torsion springs are springs that are designed with ends that can be rotated in angular deflection. This offers resistance to externally applied torque. Most torsion springs are usually close wound to maximize tension, but some can have a pitch or space between the coils to reduce friction. These springs reduce in coil diameter and increase in body length as they are deflected. This is important to remember during spring design and planning as you will have to account for the extra space needed for this increased length. The effects of friction and arm deflection on the torque must also be considered in the design process.

Torsion Spring Configurations

Types of Torsion SpringsThere are a variety of options available for tail or end configurations of torsion springs and these can be customized to meet your specifications and to allow the spring to be anchored in several different ways. For example, the legs may be located at varying positions, angles, or distances from the body of the spring. Additionally, torsion springs can have legs that are shaped or designed in many different styles and lengths. These can be bent, hooked, or looped to suit your needs.

One popular special type of torsion spring is a double torsion spring. Double torsion springs consist of one right-hand and one left-hand coil section that are connected together. These work in parallel with the total torque exerted being the sum of the two.

Some possible torsion spring configurations include:

  • Short Hook Ends
  • Straight Offset Ends
  • Hinge Ends
  • Straight Torsion Ends
  • Double Torsion
  • Special Ends

Torsion Spring Applications

Torsion springs can be used in all types of applications including during manufacturing processes, as part of industrial equipment and machinery, and as part of finished products. Some common applications for torsion springs include for:

  • Trailer Ramps
  • Clothes pins
  • Clipboards
  • Swing-down tailgates
  • Garage doors
  • Electronic devices
  • Chair control units
