Torsion Springs

Torsion springs are available in many different materials, with the most common being stainless steel and carbon steel. Torsion or double torsion springs have various configurations in the position of the spring legs and tips, depending on the application. Standard wire sizes for torsion springs range from 0.25mm to 19mm. For double torsion springs, the wire size tends to be from 0.25mm to around 6mm. Torsion and double torsion springs can right or left handed depending on the intended application. Torsion springs have a vast range of uses, but the most typical is for applications that require hatches or doors to open. The torsion spring essentially allows a component to spring back open as required.
