There are two common types of torsion springs: single and double-helical springs.
A torsion spring’s ends attach to other mechanisms that rotate around the center of the spring. The spring tries to push the attached mechanisms back to the original position. As the spring winds up, its body lengthens as it reduces in diameter.
A torsion spring’s tightness is proportional to the energy stored inside it. Tension must be removed from the spring in order to release the stored energy.
Torsion springs are found in a wide variety of everyday items, from mouse traps to garage doors and more. In fact, anything that moves rotationally can use a torsion spring. Common torsion spring applications include:
