Length: 1 Hours

Target Audience
Intermediate Level

Spring Applications provides an overview of the many different types of springs used in mechanical systems. Springs are an essential part of many applications because they dampen forces, provide flexibility, control movement between machine parts, store potential energy, and release kinetic energy. A variety of spring types are available. Each type of spring accepts different loads and load rates. Both an application's key variables and a spring's capabilities must be assessed in order to choose the most appropriate spring for an application.Without proper operation and maintenance, springs will stretch or suffer irreparable damage. Springs can damage machinery and cause injury if they break or pop out of place during installation or removal. After taking this class, users will be able to identify the different spring types, their limitations and uses, and safe practices to follow for maintenance and installation.
