Fatigue Life in Springs

rusted spring

Springs that are used in consistently performing applications for long periods of time must be checked frequently for fatigue. Although buying quality springs will increase their life expectancy, no springs will last forever. Those springs that do last and continue to perform well will be high in tensile strength and spring fatigue. What is Spring […]

Why Tensile Strength Matters in Spring Manufacturing

strong springs

One of the most fundamental factors of spring design is the tensile strength — resistance to breaking down under tension — of the material. Tensile Strength in Spring Design In compression spring design, for example, the spring’s resistance to being compressed is its “compressive strength,” while its “tensile strength” is its resistance to breaking due […]
