Various parameters play a role in defining the characteristics of a spring, and here’s a breakdown of what needs to be communicated to the manufacturer:

I. Parameters for Custom Compression Springs:

  1. Free Length:
  2. Controlled Diameters: (a) Outer Diameter, (b) Inner Diameter, (c) Inside Diameter of the Sleeve, or (d) Outside Diameter of the Rod it passes through.
  3. Wire Size “Wire Diameter”:
  4. Material (Type and Grade):
  5. Number of Coils: (a) Total Coils and (b) Right or Left Handed.
  6. Surface Treatment:
  7. Whether the Ends of the Spring Need to be Ground.

II. Parameters for Custom Extension Springs:

  1. Free Length:
  2. Controlled Diameters: (a) Outer Diameter, (b) Inner Diameter, (c) Inside Diameter of the Sleeve, or (d) Outside Diameter of the Rod it passes through.
  3. Wire Size “Wire Diameter”:
  4. Material (Type and Grade):
  5. Number of Coils: (a) Total Coils and (b) Right or Left Handed.
  6. Surface Treatment:
  7. Shape and Position of Hooks at Both Ends of the Spring (Side Hook, Center Hook).

III. Parameters for Custom Torsion Springs:

  1. Free Length:
  2. Controlled Diameters: (a) Outer Diameter, (b) Inner Diameter, (c) Inside Diameter of the Sleeve, or (d) Outside Diameter of the Rod it passes through.
  3. Wire Size “Wire Diameter”:
  4. Material (Type and Grade):
  5. Number of Coils: (a) Total Coils and (b) Right or Left Handed.
  6. Torque: Pound force required to deflect the spring to a certain angle.
  7. Maximum Deflection (Angle from the Free Position):
  8. End Configuration.
