The initial tension is released, when a tension spring is extended to a certain point, where gaps appear between the coils.
The rate is the strength of a spring as defined by Hooke's law. Hooke's Law states that the force needed to extend a spring is directly proportional to the distance you stretch it. Hooke's Law can be represented as F = ks. 'F' is the spring's restoring force 'k' is the spring constant 's' is the deflection (extension)
Counting coils on a tension spring is the same as counting coils on a compression spring. The type of ends on a spring will make no difference to the number of coils.
How spring loads work within a tension spring. If too much weight is applied to the spring it will no longer contract, therefore breaking the spring.
How to measure the length of a tension spring.
How to measure the diameters of a tension spring.
The next video in our Springtelligence series shows you how to allow for tolerances in spring manufacture.
As the Brexit deadline of 29th March is fast approaching, we feel that it is necessary to communicate to you some points around our Brexit strategy. The main focus of our business is to satisfy the demands of you, our customers. Through the turbulent times ahead our commitment to supply first class parts in a timely fashion will not change.

The Christmas celebrations have officially started at JB Springs, and it kicked off with an outing to Jungle Rumble in Leeds, a 36 hole adventure golf course. Jungle rumble also has a cocktail bar, mini bowling, a pool table and basketball machines that kept the whole team entertained. The mini golf trip was followed by an exceptional meal at Estabulo Rodizio Bar and Grill. Estabulo is a Brazilian restaurant that prepares all its dishes in an authentic manner, which gives [...]
There have been numerous new starters at JB Springs lately, and this includes three new apprentices. The three new apprentices are Scott Tennant (pictured), George Carman, Ben Mcewan. Like all new starters, they have begun their Springtelligence education and have already taken the Level 1 Springtellingence course. They will hopefully graduate as Springtellectuals in the not too distant future.
