Torsion springs are helical springs that exert a rotary force. The ends of a these springs are connected to other components. As the components start to rotate around the center of the spring, the torsion spring exerts an equal force to push them back to their initial position. These springs are subjected to bending stress instead of torsional stress, and are capable of storing and releasing angular energy. They can hold a mechanism in place statically by deflecting the legs by the center-line axis of its body. SMSC provides regular custom torsion springs, as well as heavy duty torsion springs to suit your design requirements.
Following are the specifications of torsion springs:

|Material||Beryllium Copper||Music Wire|
|Chromium Vanadium||Phosphor Bronze|
|Stainless Steel 302||Stainless Steel 304|
|Stainless Steel 316|
Here are some of the parameters of torsion springs:
Our helical torsion springs are designed for rotary actuation. These springs provide an angular return force too. These springs are offered in various leg configurations, which enable their attachment in different ways. The leg specifications to consider for torsion springs include leg end style, leg angle, and equal leg length.
Helical torsion springs that are parallel or straight on the same side have 0° leg angle, and their angle increases in the direction of unwinding. Some of the leading leg end styles include the following:
Torsion springs can be hooked, bent, twisted, and looped to meet your application requirements. We provide torsion springs in a choice of 360°, 300°, 270°, 210°, 180°, 120°, 90°, and free leg position.
Some of the major benefits of these springs are as follows:
These types of springs are commonly used in:
