How To Count Coils

Counting the coils of a spring is one of the most frequently misinterpreted concepts of spring manufacturing. Failure to count and specify coils correctly can result in errors in specification drawings which can then carry through to the final production of the spring.

Watch the video to find out how to count coils correctly.

Measuring Compression Spring Lengths

When specifying springs you must know your spring’s dimensions. There are millions of possibilities when it comes to spring design, so just knowing the working loads or the spring rate will not be enough as the spring can be any size in diameter or length.

Watch the video to find out how to measure compression spring lengths.

Diameters of a Compression Spring

The third video in our new Springtelligence video series will show you the Wire Diameter (d), Outside Diameter (OD), Inside Diameter (ID), and Mean Diameter (D) of a compression spring.

Watch the video to find out how to identify and then measure the Wire Diameter (d), Outside Diameter (OD), Inside Diameter (ID), and Mean Diameter (D) of a compression spring.

Gap & Pitch of a Compression Spring

This video in our Springtelligence video series will show you the gap between two adjacent coils of a compression spring and the simplest method of measuring the pitch on a compression spring.

Watch the video to find out more.

Spring Winding Direction

This video in our Springtelligence video series will show you the winding direction of a spring. The wind direction has no effect on the function of the spring.

If two compression springs have to operate together (one inside the other) it is important for them to be wound in opposite directions, this will prevent the coils from getting entangled.
