From this Article:
The Solid Height of a compression spring is the height of the spring when all of the coils are brought together (stacked) by compression (load). Solid Height should only be specified when it is... (View Full Article)

From this Article:
The direction of wind of a spring can be determined by simply holding it in your hand with your fingers placed around the outside of the body and your thumb pointing straight up. If the last coil ends... (View Full Article)

From this Article:
Often spring designs are more expensive and difficult to manufacture due to lack of space. Each type of spring presents its own challenges, however, adequate space for coils and spring diameters can... (View Full Article)

From this Article:
One of the least understood elements of spring design is initial tension in extension springs. So often designers will guess at the amount of force necessary to overcome this one time load, or they... (View Full Article)

From this Article:
Modulus of Elasticity is the measurement of stiffness and rigidity of spring material, or its elastic ability. The higher the value (modulus), the stiffer the material. Conversely, materials with... (View Full Article)

From this Article:
Simply put, permanent set in a compression spring is a condition where the spring is deflected (compressed) and does not return to its original free length. This occurs when the material is deflected... (View Full Article)

From this Article:
The spring index is the relationship between the mean diameter and wire diameter. The equation is explained in this article. This is a very important relationship to consider for manufacturing ease... (View Full Article)

From this Article:
One of the least understood facets of spring design is specifying the proper tolerance to various dimensions of the spring. Sometimes the person engineering and/or drafting a new spring will disregard... (View Full Article)

From this Article:
Squareness of a compression spring refers to the perpendicularity of the spring to its own axis. A spring that is "square" will exert more uniform loads, which may be needed in critical applications.... (View Full Article)

From this Article:
There are basically four (4) types of ends on Helical Compression Springs: closed & ground, closed & not ground ends, open & ground ends and open & not ground ends. This article describes the types of... (View Full Article)
