Double Torsion Springs
Double torsion springs are springs that are designed with ends that can be rotated in angular deflection. This offers resistance to externally applied torque. Double torsion springs consist of one right-hand and one left-hand coil section that are connected together. Both sides work in parallel to double the torque output. Double torsion springs are usually close wound (coils touching) either for stability, or to maximize space efficiency. When an application demands low friction or a certain area to be filled without the use of spacers, the double torsion springs can be designed with a pitch or space between the coils. There are a variety of options available for end configurations of double torsion springs and these can be customized to meet your specifications and to allow the spring to be anchored in several different configurations. For example, the legs may be located at varying positions, angles, or distances from the body of the spring. Custom double torsion springs can have center sections and legs that are fabricated in many different configurations.
Double torsion Springs can be used for many applications and come in a vast variety of materials and finishes. At Peninsula Spring, we can custom make any type of double torsion spring to meet your specifications. Regardless of the industry, quality, custom double torsion springs are always in high demand. They can be found in almost anything from simple, old machinery to complex medical devices to satellites.
