end grinding spring

cbn disc for spring end grinding

Grinding is required if the spring is to stand straight, mate flush with a flat surface, exert a uniform pressure on a flat surface or maintain a more consistent length.Spring is crush fed in between two grinding wheels.

It is importantthat the springs are carried across the entire face of thewheel. If the grinding wheels have a center hole, thesprings should break into the center by approximately of the spring diameter. If the springs do cross the entiregrinding wheel face, the wheel will not wear evenly anddevelop a high center. This will require frequent dressingand will cause problems keeping the springs square

compression springs - end squareness, parallelism and grinding

Spring squareness is the angular difference between the outermost limit of a spring diameter when compared to a straightedge at a right angle to a horizontal flat plate on which the spring is standing. This affects how the axial force produced by the spring can be transferred to adjacent parts in a mechanism. Open ends may be entirely suitable for some applications, however, when space allows, closed ends provide greater squareness and reduce the possibility of tangling with little increase in cost. Compression springs with closed ends can often perform well without grinding, particularly in wire sizes smaller than .020 in. or spring indices exceeding12. Spring parallelism relates to the ends of the spring and how parallel they are to one another. A compression spring cannot be closed and ground so consistently that its ends will always be square (in parallel planes at right angles to its axis). In addition, the helix angles adjacent to the end coils will not have uniform configuration and closing tension, and these springs cannot be coiled so accurately as to permit all coils to close out simultaneously under load. As a result of these end coil effects, the spring rate tends to lag over the initial 20 percent of the deflection range, often being considerably less than calculated. As the ends seat during the first stage of deflection, the spring rate rises to the calculated value. In contrast, the spring rate for the final 20 percent of the deflection range tends to increase as coils progressively close out. Many applications require grinding the ends in order to provide greater control over squareness. Among these are applications in which (1) high-duty springs are specified, (2) unusually close tolerances on load or rate are needed, (3) solid height must be minimized, (4) accurate seating and uniform bearing pressures are required, and (5) a tendency toward buckling must be reduced. Since springs are flexible and external forces tend to tilt the ends, grinding to extreme squareness is difficult. A spring may be specified for grinding square in the unloaded condition or square under load, but not in both conditions with any degree of accuracy. When squareness at a specific load or height is required, it should be specified.
