SPEC® Mechanical Extension Springs are coiled products, in a variety of materials and forms. Extension springs are attached to two components from both ends of the spring, and when the components pull apart, the spring tries to pull the components together again. Extension Springs are wound to oppose extension. Dependant on the application's load requirements, the springs initial tension can be manipulated. They are often tightly wound in the no-load position and have hooks, eyes, or spring anchors at the ends to attach to the components. They are manufactured to the highest quality and are ready to ship. Catalog extension springs remove the hassle and difficulty in designing a part, Associated Spring RAYMOND has already done the work. Each spring is designed within proper stress levels and manufacturing limits.
Stocked catalog parts are offered in a variety of materials (music wire, stainless steel, 316SS) with no finish. Extension springs can be easily mounted using spring anchors. Should you need a part with a different finish or specification, see our Engineered Solution Services.
