A torsion spring differs from its extension and compression spring counterparts because it doesn’t exert an axial force. Instead, it relies upon rotary force to operate. Because of this, different factors must be taken into account when considering torsion spring design.

Our engineering capabilities allow us to create torsion springs that can be used in products like:

  • Door handles
  • Foot pedals
  • Return levers
  • Safety hooks
  • Trailer ramps, gates and lids
  • Mousetraps

Because of the diverse range of products they can be used in, their design can vary greatly from order to order. Our engineers are able to create a torsion spring that is precisely designed for your specific application.

What Goes into Torsion Spring Design?

The one-size-fits-all solution offered by many companies results in springs that do not last the life of the application. Don’t risk creating an inferior product just because you used an inferior spring.

Torsion spring design requires precision. Our engineering team will work closely with you understand the exact specifications that are required for your application to function properly.

Some of the parameters that our team will take into account include:

  • Inner diameter of the spring
  • Outer diameter of the spring
  • The diameter of the wire used within the spring
  • The total spring length
  • Maximum deflection, load and wind
  • The wire material and finish
  • Spring rate
  • The leg configurations of the spring
  • Any other specifications that you may need
