They are mainly used as mechanical elements capable of absorbing considerable amounts of energy without reaching critical stress, they are used for various purposes including: shock attenuation, reduction or exaltation of vibrations, control of moving parts, energy storage, etc. …
Traction springs are widely used in various sectors, including automotive, agricultural machinery, earthmoving machinery, braking units, industrial vehicles, marine industry, valves and oil plants, steel industry, vibrating screens, elevators and hoists, etc…
Depending on the area of use and therefore also the sector in which they will be used, extension springs can be produced in different materials of various sizes.
