Classification and basic use of spring

According to the nature of the force, the spring can be divided into: compression spring, tension spring, torsion spring, bending spring;
According to the shape, it can be divided into: coil spring, scroll spring, leaf spring, disc spring, ring spring, special-shaped spring, etc.;

According to the production process, it can be divided into cold coil springs and hot coil springs; according to the production materials, it can be divided into metal springs, plastic springs, rubber springs and other material springs.

The main functions of the spring are:

1. To control the movement of machinery, the common ones are the control spring in the clutch and the valve spring in the internal combustion engine, etc.;

2. Absorb vibration and impact energy. The common ones are sofa seat springs, buffer springs under train carriages and vibration-absorbing springs in couplings, etc.;

3. Store and output energy as power, commonly used as watch springs, springs in firearms, etc.;

4. force measuring components, force measuring devices, spring scales, etc.

The spring also has the functions of measuring, resetting, driving, buffering, sounding and pressing.
Compression springs are mainly under pressure during work, have the function of resisting and buffering pressure, and are widely used in machinery.
Tension springs mainly bear tension during work and are used for mechanism reset, and are widely used in machinery.
The torsion spring mainly bears the torsional moment during work, and has the performance of resisting torsion, and is often used for clamping of the mechanism.
Leaf springs are mainly under pressure during work and are mainly used for shock absorption. They are often used in the suspension mechanisms of automobiles and tractors.
Planar scroll springs mainly store energy during work, and are widely used in clocks, instruments, and experimental equipment.

Disc springs are mainly under pressure during work, and are often used in heavy machinery with large impact.
