What is a Coil Spring
Coil springs are sometimes also called helical springs because of their helical shape. Conical coil springs, compression coil springs and other coil spring shapes can be found in use throughout industrial and consumer products. They are important components in many different kinds of industrial equipment as well as in other tools. Coil springs are important to the function of office utilities such as staplers and printers. Very small coil springs can be found in pens and mechanical pencils. Very large coil springs are used in the shipping industry for docking equipment. Coil springs are also called torsion springs and storing mechanical energy through a twisting motion. Mousetraps involve the use of torsion coil springs.
Other types of coil springs are compression and extension springs. Compression springs under load. Extension springs lengthen under the weight of a load. Extension springs are used primarily to keep two metal components together, while compression springs are used to keep metal components from touching. The basic design of each of the two kinds of coil springs differs in an essential way. The spiral wires in compression springs are not touching when in a relaxed position and only become so under the stress of weight. In contrast, extension springs are designed so that their spiral wires are contiguous when there is no weight load and stretched apart under the stress of a weighted load. Coil springs can be made of various steel materials, including stainless spring steel hard drawn spring steel, steel music wire and oil-tempered spring steel. Spring steel is a special kind of steel with increased elasticity and return properties. The elasticity of a spring enables it to return to its original position; however, this capability diminishes with use. In general, the larger the wire, the stronger the spring is. Spring strength can also be increased by making the coil diameter of the spring smaller.
