Unlike the compression springs or extension springs, the Helical Torsion Springs are helical springs that exert a torque or rotary force, The coil of a torsion spring experiences bending stress. Torsion springs are often used as a counterbalance for doors, lids or other mechanisms that rotate on a shaft. Torsion springs can be made out of round, rectangular or shaped wire. A simple torsion spring has straight, but any bends or shapes can be formed. Double torsion springs can be used when twice the force is required or when you need an even distribution of torque.
The torsion spring configuration is created for the purpose of storing and releasing angular energy or for the purpose of statically holding a mechanism in place by deflecting the legs about the body centerline axis. Torsion springs will reduce in body diameter and increase slightly in body length when deflected in the preferred direction of the fabricated wind.
Double Torsion Springs
Double-bodied torsion springs are designed using the same methods as for single-bodied torsion springs. The rate for a double-bodied torsion spring is equal to the sum of the rates for each component. For the same wire diameter, coil diameter and wire length, double-bodied torsion springs have rates four times those of single-bodied types. Double-bodied torsion springs should be designed so they are coiled out from the center rather than in from the ends.
