Don’t you just wish you had this garage door? Batman all the way. Yay! I love my superheros. When it comes do garage doors gas springs are usually involved when it comes to controlled openings and closings. Maybe even here?
A few years ago I read about this project with compression springs used in cleaning system for crankcase gases. The design project was very long to really make the perfect spring solutions for the separators. In the end three different types of compression springs were sent to the customer. Both sides happy of the technological development.
Spring materials can be a jungle and the making the right choice is crucial from the beginning. Steel, stainless, super alloys, titanium etc. Add modern equipment (for e.g. compression springs), experienced production teams and experts. Make sure you can keep the highest level of quality and productivity to ride off into the sunset.
New week! Let’s make it a good one and start by shedding some light on what makes torsion springs so great. In technical terms we’re talking about the torque performance, in this case . Torque is equal to force x leg length: M= F x A. Torsion springs have a linear spring characteristic, i.e. if a spring is turned 10° to provide torque of 1 Nmm, the same spring will provide a torque of 2 Nmm at 20° torsion. Interesting!
