Torsion Springs

A reliable source for Torsion Springs information and leading Torsion Springs Companies & Manufacturers.

A torsion spring is a flexible, elastic device that stores mechanical energy when twisted because it twists its end along its axis. When something is twisted, the quantity (angle) of twisting determines how much torque it produces in the opposite direction. Read More…

Torsion Springs

A flat spiral coil or helical-shaped spring used to apply torque or store rotational energy is called a torque spring. Torsion springs store energy and release rotational energy via torque as a measure of force, in contrast to other springs like compression or extension springs that need a linear force to push or pull. When applying or resisting a load, torque forces the spring to rotate about its axis. Consider torque as the linear force that drives compression and extension springs on a rotating scale.

Materials for Torsion Springs

Spring steel, which is often a low-alloy manganese, medium-carbon, or high-carbon steel with very high yield strength, is used to make springs. To provide the appropriate force constant for the application, springs are frequently manufactured according to specifications using specialized wire winding machines. These machines wound wire around a predetermined number of turns over a predetermined length.

Common Applications Of Torsion Springs

Torsion springs can be used in a variety of situations. The following are some of its principal applications:

Pendulum clocks use torsion springs. Such clocks have a wheel-shaped weight suspended from the dial's center by a torsion spring. The weight twists the spring as it revolves around its axis. The spring causes the wheel to twist in the opposite direction. As a result, the pendulum swings continuously back and forth, pushing the gears to which it is linked and therefore operating the clock.

Clothes pins are the most common example of a torsion spring. The great clamping function of clothing pins is made possible by torsion springs.

Automotive applications: Torsion springs offer consistent tension and effortless motion. They are ideal for many automotive components, including chassis, valves, clutches, and gear shifters. These torsion springs are comprised of materials like chromium silicone, which increases their strength and durability.

Torsion Spring

Medical Equipment: Torsion springs are commonly used in medical equipment, including wheelchair lifts, hospital beds, dental applications, and medical immobilization devices. These springs are often made of high-carbon steel for added strength, which also lengthens the spring's lifespan.

Door Hinges: Torsion springs are used in door hinges, including heavy-duty doors at warehouses, home doors, and automotive doors. Torsion springs help doors can return to their former position after opening.

Advantages of Torsion Springs

Torsion springs have a longer lifespan than other springs, and yet remain an affordable option for many applications. They are incredibly durable and provide strong, powerful motions with smooth control.

Choosing the Right Torsion Spring Supplier

To make sure you have the most productive outcome when purchasing torsion springs from a torsion spring supplier, it is important to compare at least 4 companies using our torsion spring directory. Each torsion spring supplier has a business profile page that highlights their areas of experience and capabilities and a contact form to directly communicate with the supplier for more information or request a quote. Review each torsion spring company website using our proprietary website previewer to get an idea of what each business specializes in, and then use our simple RFQ form to contact multiple torsion spring companies with the same quote.

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...
