Everything you Need to Know About Torsion Springs

What are Torsion Springs?

Torsion springs are a variety of springs that are twisted in a helical fashion. This means that when pressure is applied to the spring it exerts a force called torque in the opposite direction. This mechanism is widely used in products such as clothes pins for example. When you apply pressure to the pin it then exerts torque when released until it is closed, holding the clothes in place. Continue reading…

Constant force springs are ideal for many uses and are especially useful where constant force is required. For any application which needs a smooth return and retrieve, counterbalance applications, tensioning and loading applications, constant force springs are a perfect choice. Industries which make use of the constant force spring include healthcare and automotive; however, the space industry also uses these specialist springs, mainly to work with the changes of force within the atmosphere. So, what exactly does this industry use constant force springs for and how does it benefit them?
