Spring Coiling

For many industrial sectors such as automobiles, motorcycles, sports and 3C consumables, coiling springs are an important part of almost all equipment. The spring coiling machines is a machine that produces a coiling spring. Coiling spring is a mechanical part commonly used to store and release energy.
The characteristics of the spring will affect the accuracy and precision of the machines output. Under tension or compression, the spring material (wire) will be twisted and then curled. Therefore, the spring characteristics determine the type and capability of spring coiling machines that should be used. The Taiwan made spring coiling machines are welcomed by users all over the world because of their affordable price and high performance, and can guarantee the productivity of users in different industries.

Basic Concepts of Coils & Springs

In the industry, coiling spring is a mechanical part commonly used to store and release energy.  For a very long period of time, coils and springs are used by many industrial manufacturers into a wide variety of industrial sectors to make their machinery work smoother with the design. Most coils and springs are made of an elastic material which is composed into the shape of a helix, and that shape can return to its natural length when it is unloaded by the force comes from outside the system. Meanwhile, when a coil spring is under tension, the materials will undergoes torsion effects so that the features of the spring is based on the shear modulus rather than other modulus.



The most common applications include automotive shock absorbers and watches. Coil springs are also used as key parts in mechanical equipment structure. Coil springs are usually called compression springs, torsion springs or helical springs according to their functions.
The spring can keep and release energy to absorb shock or support two contact surfaces. Coil springs are usually spiral or helical wires, made of steel materials to give full play to their structural advantages.
Spring stiffness is a key characteristic. It is a measure of how much a coil spring can be maintained until compressed by 1 inch (about 2.54 cm long). The spring stiffness rate is usually specified by the manufacturer according to the industrial needs of its customers. Here is an example of spring stiffness: If the spring has a spring stiffness of 100, the number indicates that the spring will compress 1 inch under a load of 100 pounds. Based on the value, we can decide which spring to use.


Weight energy absorption

The spring is a practical mechanical part that can absorb the energy or weight of the object to prevent the object itself or the corresponding object from being damaged.
Compression coil springs are designed to push back when in contact with the surface, and have the function of resisting compression force. They are usually coiled into a cylinder with a constant diameter or same curve degree. Among other types of springs are expansion coil springs for stretching on two surfaces.
Coil springs are widely used in vehicle suspension systems. These springs are compression springs. Depending on the application, the strength and size may vary greatly. The coil spring suspension may be hardened or softened depending on the vehicle used.
The coil springs in the truck allow them to travel smoothly when unloaded, and once loaded, the springs compress and harden. In this way, the bounce of the vehicle during loading will be reduced. The coil spring suspension is also used in high-performance cars so that the car can absorb severe bumps and have a low body roll. For some off-road vehicles, the coil spring suspension can even increase the wheel travel.



How to expand the strength and sustainability of coil springs is a major mechanical problem that has plagued many experts in the industry. Because there are many secondary working mechanisms in this issue, it is full of unpredictable problems that may affect the final performance. With this in mind, many institutions and private companies are striving to manufacture stronger coil spring units for industrial use, thereby creating more reliable and durable parts. These parts are ultimately expected to be used in higher value products, such as certain advanced automobiles, aerospace projects, power plant facilities, etc.
