What is Spring Pitch and Which Is Right For You?-KB Delta

Spring pitch involves many different variables, all of which can depend on what a spring is made of and what the purpose of the spring is. The pitch can vary from music wire to chrome silicon, stainless steel to Elgiloy. The thickness of the spring can also come into consideration. To best serve your system…

How Tension Springs Are Used in Engineering

How Tension Springs Are Used In Engineering-KB Delta

Comprised of a simplistic beauty, springs may seem like a basic component but they are a design that is fundamental to many engineering solutions. Tension springs provide resistance to a pulling force in a linear direction and can be used for storing potential energy or to create a resistance against a directional force. This is…

Here’s What You Should Know About Tension Springs

How Tension Springs Are Used In Engineering-KB Delta

Whilst they’re easy to manufacture and also relatively cheap to produce, tension springs can generally be found to possess a high level of reliability. Within industrial systems, these small components take on a more critical function, as the failure of any part of the system will result in a disruption to productivity. Often required to…

Compression vs. Tension Springs

A Few Facts About Tension Springs-KB Delta

For the general public most springs look alike, such as the tension and compression springs. However, they are designed to perform much different tasks. Their similarities exist in the design. Both are made up of a coil spring that is devised for elasticity and strength, but that is where their likeness ends. The main difference…

When Safety Depends on a Tension Spring

The design of the tension spring is such that a very specific amount of pull force can be achieved as the spring is extended to a certain length. As these springs are manufactured, they will develop an initial tension. Adequate force must be used to overcome that initial tension to elongate the spring. The manufacturer…
