Torsion springs are the most practical spring solution where torque is applied from two directions, as they are designed to offer resistance to externally applied pressures. These springs are typically used on a tube or rod.
We manufacture torsion and double-torsion springs using the latest CNC technology, enabling the handling of complex jobs and low to high volumes to meet fluctuating customer requirements. We also have an in-house lab to guarantee the quality of our springs and save our customers from losing money on poorly made products.
The customer brought their problem to Spring Dynamics. After assessing the situation, the engineering team brought out their drawing board and sought an answer. The torsion spring that was meant to actuate the mechanism had already been developed, but there had to be a way to make this work. The decision was made to recreate the spring with an open pitch between the body coils, making the spring behave like a compression spring as well as a torsion spring! The force applied to the top and bottom mating parts for the spring now had force applied to them, making everything fit snugly and eliminating the free play in the mechanism.
