Also known as extension springs, Tension springs are usually
wound with an initial tension which is evident by the tightly wound
coils of the spring. Different tensions can be applied to the spring
according to its load specifications.
Tension springs absorb and store energy by resisting a pulling force.
Starco produces a wide variety of tension springs, including
helical tension springs, drawbar springs and garter springs. Springs can
be designed by Starco engineers using the latest design software to
meet a customer's particular load and design requirements.
Tension springs have a variety of uses, including medical devices, brake shoe springs, lever return springs and trampoline components.
