Most people tend to think of springs in terms of stereotypical helical spirals, but that’s not necessarily the case at all. Many springs actually don’t conform to this pattern, and the clock spring is one such example. Made from flat wires rather than the round variety, these springs are not quite as unusual as they might first appear. Clock springs are frequently used within similar capacities to the closely related torsion spring. Although the two share many properties, they differ in terms of how they present force, with the clock spring exerting a pushing force from its outer edge onto another object; primarily as it rotates around a set axis.
These components take their name from their common tendency to serve within watches and clock mechanisms, and so they’re actually a very common spring, despite their unfamiliar appearance. Here at European Springs and Pressings Ltd, we are a specialist provider of springs according to their various types, and clock springs are certainly no exception to this rule. Usually, these springs are manufactured from high quality stainless steel, largely due to the low rate of fatigue that this material possesses, however as with so many of our solutions we’re able to tailor the specifications of a spring to meet your exact request.
