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 today at 708-453-2570.
The diagram to the right shows how to specify leg position and corresponding load requirements for a torsion spring.
Load and deflection requirements for torsion springs include:
You can use common torsion spring specifications to find important measurements, including inner diameter, outer diameter, leg length, body length, and more. Learn
Whatever your torsion spring design, size and tolerance needs, Master Spring has the manufacturing capabilities to match. 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 wire. Our diverse selection of springs and wire forms, coupled with our industry expertise, means you can count on us to design and manufacture a torsion spring to match your exacting needs.
Still curious? Learn about suitable uses for each material in our Properties of Materials chart.
There are many unique configurations for the ends and legs on a torsion spring. Some of the more common end configurations for helical torsion springs are shown below in Figure 2 from the Spring Manufacturing Institute’s Handbook of Spring Design.
A double torsion spring should be coiled out from the center rather than in from the ends. This design allows both ends of the double spring to work together and provides unique torque for many different types of applications. Refer to Figure 3 for the recommended way to design a double torsion spring.
