  • The Benefits of Gas Springs: What You Should Know

    The Benefits of Gas Springs: What You Should Know0

    Gas springs have become a popular alternative to traditional coil-based springs. Also known as pneumatic springs, they consist of a gas-filled cylinder with a piston attached to the end. The piston is extended by default. When exposed to a compressive force, though, the piston will retract inside of the cylinder, thereby pressurizing the gas. The

    What Are Flat Springs and How Do They Work?0

    When most people think of springs, they envision pieces of coiled metal. There are extension springs and compression springs, both of which consist of a single piece of coiled metal. Extension springs simply create a pulling force from their respective ends, whereas compression springs create a pushing force from their respective ends. Flat springs, however,

    The Beginner’s Guide to Compression Springs0

    Of all the different types of springs, compression is the most common. They consist of a single piece of coiled metal in a helical shape. They are known as “compression springs” because they apply a compressive force. Even if you’ve used them in the past, though, you might be wondering how compression springs work. This

    What Is a Gartner Spring?0

    When researching some of the different types of springs, you may come across garter springs. Gartner springs are designed to store mechanical energy — just like all other springs. They consist of a coiled piece of metal that, when compression, exerts a radial force. Garter springs, however, feature a unique design that distinguishes them from

    4 Common Types of Coil Springs0

    Springs can be classified as either coil or non-coil, depending on their design. Coil springs live up to their namesake by featuring a coiled design. They are typically made of a single strand of metal that follows a helical path, resulting in a coil. Coil springs are made by wrapping the strand of metal around
