Torsion Springs: Load and Deflection Requirements
We help OEM engineers with their torsion springs
The following diagram shows how to specify leg position and corresponding load requirement for a torsion spring. At Master Spring, we’ve been manufacturing custom torsion springs for OEMs for more than 70 years. Learn more about how we can design and manufacture the torsion springs for your next application by calling us at 708-453-2570 today.
We have a wide range of CNC spring forming machines that can manufacturer custom torsion springs with wire diameters as small as 0.010” or as large as 0.250” (0.25 mm to 6.4 mm) and any size wire in between.
We manufacture custom torsion springs from all types of material. The most common material types for torsion springs are music wire, stainless steel (type 302, type 316 and type 17-7 PH), and hard drawn.
You can learn about the suitable uses of each material type in the Properties of Materials chart.
A Double Torsion Spring should be coiled out from the center rather than in from the ends, allowing both ends of the double spring to work together and provide unique torque for many different types of applications. The recommended way to design a double torsion spring is shown on the left side of the diagram to the right.
