Gifford Spring Company, Inc. Datasheets for Torsion Springs
Helically wound springs that deflect torque rotationally, torsion springs express mechanical energy through the property of elasticity: the spring action happens when it is twisted rather than compressed or pulled. Despite the name, torsion springs are subject to bending stress--not torsion--as the torque is carried through the length of the wound material.

|Torsion Springs work by resisting externally applied torque. Friction and arm deflection affect torque. Torsion springs are most effective when supported over a rod or tube. Double torsion springs consist...|
