Torsion Springs

Torsion Springs are made of a helical coil with legs coming off of the body. The legs are fitted or pressed against two elements to create resistance. As force is applied by the elements, a torsion spring works by twisting around the centre and trying to push the elements back to their original position. The more force applied, the tighter the coil becomes, decreasing the inside diameter. Torsion springs should always be used in the direction of the wind up, as if used in the opposite direction this can lead to overstressing, failure of the spring or breakages. The legs can be bent into many different forms for each specific application.

Torsion Springs

Double Torsion Springs are two single torsion springs connected together in the middle. These have the same features as a single torsion spring but have two coiled bodies wound in opposite directions. As with a single torsion spring, the legs are usually fitted or pressed against an element whilst the coiled bodies usually sit over a rod. These springs can double the torque that you receive from a single torsion spring.

Torsion Springs

When ordering a Torsion spring, it is very useful to provide any details you have to hand. The main dimensions needed are:

  • Wire Diameter
  • Body Length
  • Outside or Inside Diameter
  • Leg Length
  • Angle of Leg
  • Direction of Wind

It is also important to advise us of any closely related working parts, such as:

  • If the spring works inside a hole
  • If the spring works over a shaft
