Coil Springs

Coil Springs

A coil spring is an elastic element made of metal or heavy plastic in the form of curls or ringlets of round wire or cord that is wrapped around a cylinder. The winding of a coil spring can be loose or tight in a helical shape depending on the application for which it is made...

Compression Springs

Compression Springs

Coil springs called compression springs can store mechanical energy when they are compressed. These open-coiled, helical springs provide resistance to compressive loading. When these springs are...

Extension Springs

Extension Springs

Extension springs are helical wound springs that are so closely coiled together to create initial tension in the coils. This initial tension creates resistance against the force applied to its ends for extension. The initial tension helps determine how closely and...

There are many kinds of small springs. Electronic springs are extremely small and must be fabricated under a microscope in a clean room facility. The smallest springs used in computers are can be difficult to see with a human eye. They can be found in cell phones, computers and electronic scales.

The medical industry uses small springs in devices like hearing aides, catheters and endoscopes. Some keyboards and touchpad keys each contain a tiny spring underneath the plastic overlay to provide tactile response, which provides assurance that the button has been properly pushed.

Appliances like commercial dryers, hardware, firearms, circuit breakers, lighting, pools and spas, toys, automotive components, jewelry like watches, lock mechanisms, small clocks, sport fishing equipment, batteries, marine applications and writing instruments like pens all employ the use of small springs to work properly. They are used for compression, torsion or tension/extension and are composed of either round coil wire or flat wire.

While larger springs are formed out of annealed metal and hardened after fabrication, smaller springs are wound from pre-hardened wire. The wire is made of many different materials, including all types of austenitic stainless steel (302, 304, 316), pre-plated zinc, bronze, hestelloy and music wire. They are used as precision mechanical springs and are wound by micro-coilers, a very recent technology. The wire used to make the springs is always formed by cold rolling or cold extrusion, which increases its strength when compared to hot rolling.

Fabricating smaller and smaller micro springs is currently in high demand as micro chips themselves become smaller with each technological innovation and the demand for smaller electronics grows. Manufacturers who specialize in small springs handle the spring design, fabrication and finishing processes all in one plant. The smaller the spring, the more difficult its manufacturing technique; today, they are made with the help of CNC (computer numerical controlled) machinery, which carries out the fabrication process in an automated manner by direction of computer software.
