Characteristics and application of tension spring

Characteristics of tension springMany different terminal devices or “hooks” are used to ensure the tension source of the tension spring. The working principle of tension spring is opposite to that of compression spring. The compression spring reverses when it is compressed, while the stretching spring acts reversely when it is stretched or pulled apart. When the ends of the stretch springs are pulled apart, the springs try to pull them back together.

Like compression springs, tension springs also absorb and store energy. But unlike compression springs, most tension springs are usually under a certain degree of tension, even without any load. This initial tension determines the tightness of the tension spring coil without any load.

Application of tension spring

Tension spring is also known as spiral tension spring. It is usually of equal pitch, and its cross section is mostly circular. It can be used in many occasions, such as production assembly, experiment, research and development, maintenance, etc.

Tension spring plays an important role in the global market and is widely used in the fields of national defense, ocean, computer, electronics, automobile, mold, medicine, biochemistry, aerospace, railway, nuclear power, wind power, thermal power, engineering machinery, mining machinery, construction machinery, elevator, etc.
