5 TYPES OF SPECIALTY SPRINGS & THEIR COMMON USES
To manufacture different types of spring by CNC compression spring machine or CNC camless spring machine, you may need to learn about some specialty springs.
Specialty springs are custom-designed springs manufactured to fulfill a specific mechanical function in a particular mechanism. Specialty springs will vary in design in relation to the spring requirements and spring force—compressive, tensile, or torsion—needed for the application. Because specialty springs are uniquely designed for a specific application—they are not a stock item found on shelves—spring dimensions and physical features—the material used, number of coils, length, wire diameter, outer and inner diameter, configuration, among other design considerations—are critical to ensure the correct load and travel requirements are met for the device to function properly.
Every industry relies on specialty springs in the manufacture of the mechanical assemblies of products unique to that sector. No matter how unique the design requirements, the specialty spring is still a mechanical device that, in general, provides compression, extension or torsion force as needed for the assembly to function. Here are 5 types of specialty spring applications and the industries that they serve.
