A spring is a resilient element, which serves for short-term accumulation of energy owing to elastic deformation under the load. The material of the elastic element can be solid material, liquid and gas.
A spring is one of the widely used parts of machines, vehicles and devices. In many mechanisms there are dozens and hundreds of springs, such as coil springs, compression, stretching, torsion ones that perform responsible and complex functions. The elastic properties of springs make it possible to use them to provide tension or pressing force in couplings, brakes, friction gears; to accumulate energy with the subsequent use of a spring as an engine; for vibration isolation and shock absorption; for the return movements of valves, cam mechanisms; for measuring forces in dynamometers and other devices. In many cases, springs refer to those parts for which high accuracy of calculation and manufacturing is required.
There are the following types of springs:
By the type of perceived load – springs of compression, stretching, torsion, bending.
By design and shape – helical cylindrical (screw), twisted conical (shock absorbers), disk, plate, torsion, liquid, gas, flat, spiral.
By characteristics – of constant and variable stiffness.
In order to provide the furniture, electrical, and automotive industries, spring producing companies manufacture a wide range of products classified according to the mechanism of action on compression, torsion or tension springs. They are most in demand, and have a wider range and classification. We would like to offer you the following classification of springs according to the place of application of the products.
As a rule, electrotechnical springs are of a small size and have a special galvanic coating, which makes it possible to extend the technical lifetime of both the spring and the entire mechanism. At the same time, the small size of a spring for electrical equipment very often makes the process of applying a galvanic coating very difficult and time-consuming. In this case, in agreement with the customer, manufacturers make springs of materials with already applied coating.
Springs for machine tools are very diverse and numerous. They are various in terms of the strength of elasticity, the marks of metals, dimensions and other parameters. These are springs for forge-and-press equipment, vibrating tables, metalworking, metallurgical equipment, etc.
Springs for cars are used in engines, gearboxes, braking systems, etc. They differ in size.
Springs for furniture is a separate article in the production. They have a number of distinctive features. Practically in any piece of furniture, whose work is connected with transformation, or which have movable connecting elements, there will be a spring. The aesthetic appearance of the spring plays a very important role because furniture is the element of the interior. A special galvanic coating is used in the production of such a type of springs.
If you want to order die springs or any other types of springs, manufactures can produce them individually according to your drawing in the shortest possible time. Thanks to high-tech equipment, well-established production and skills of specialists, manufacturers are able to solve problems of any complexity.
