System springs

System springs, they have rectangle cross sections. Produced according to ISO 10243 which defines its diameter, length and strength. This standard defines four series of springs, which when of same size they are interchangeable offering different forces. These four series are each one colour for an easy identification of the type of spring.

Inside the family of rectangle cross section springs there is a fifth serie which is superstrong, which with equivalent sizes to the other four series it offers a force up to four times the one of their strongest serie.

Also there is another type of system spring which follows the same rules as the previous, but this type has an oval cross section which keeping the same sizes it offers alternative forces and strokes.

System springs with rectangle cross section

All springs are made of steel alloy wires (Cr-V/Cr-Si). This wire is especially resistant to impacts and deformations. Thanks to its quality it can work in high temperature conditions, up to 230ºC. The springs are treated thermally and put through a "shot peened" process aswell as preloaded. All that removes tensions and achieves high fatigue limits.

System springs with rectangle cross section

There are five series of System Springs as the table shows:

 

SERIE LOAD LONG LIFE DEFLECTION MAX. RECOMMENDED DEFLECTION
SZ-8010 LIGHT 30% 40%
SZ-8020 MEDIUM 25% 37,5%
SZ-8030 HEAVY 20% 30%
SZ-8040 EXTRAHEAVY 17% 25%
SZ-8045 SUPERHEAVY 10% 15%
SZ-8047 DOUBLE EXTRA HEAVY CONSULT CONSULT
SZ-8049 DOUBLE EXTRA EXTRA HEAVY CONSULT CONSULT

 

Usage recommendations:

  • Select the longest possible spring with the lowest possible force, resulting in a smaller ammount of work.

  • Preload the spring; at least a 5% of its length with a 2 mm minimum.

  • Prevent total deflection from being greater from the maximum recommended.

Oval cross section System Springs

Oval cross section system springs can be split into four series identified by their colour.

SERIE LOAD LONG LIFE DEFLECTION MAX. RECOMMENDED DEFLECTION
L1S LIGHT 25% 50%
L2S MEDIUM 20% 37%
L3S HEAVY 15% 30%
L4S EXTRAHEAVY 15% 25%
