What Are Die Springs?
Die springs are sometimes known as high force or high load compression springs and they are specifically designed to maintain and withstand high levels of applied stress. Unlike standard compression springs, we manufacture them with rectangular wire instead of circular. As a result, this type of spring can handle up to 30% more stress than its compression counterpart.
How Do Die Springs Work?
A die spring is a very robust type of spring and works by storing its energy once the load is first applied. The spring then tries to keep the two components separate. They differ from compression springs in that they are specially designed to offer predetermined pressure, particularly in extreme conditions. A tighter spring winding will yield a higher die spring rate. It is important that a die spring is installed pretensioned in order to avoid shock loads.
Common Uses Of Die Springs
Die springs are most suited to applications requiring high temperatures, high loads, or heavy machinery. With this in mind, they play an integral part within manufacturing and engineering industries. Some example applications include:
- Clutches and brakes
- Aircraft mechanisms
- Oil and gas drills
- Farm machinery
As a UK leading die spring manufacturer, we allow a variety of dimensional ranges to be used and when looking at die springs, factors such as the material, wire size, finish and ends will determine the appropriate choices.
