Whether in wagon buffers, in mechanical engineering or for damping vibrations in buildings –
Evolut springs (also called buffer springs or truncated cone springs) can be used in a variety of ways.
They have a high level of damping and offer high forces in a small space. They are compact and a powerful alternative to conventional insulation options. This is the reason why the Evolut spring is preferred to the spiral spring / compression spring in many areas of mechanical engineering or in the railway sector.
Evolut springs are determined by their dimensions Di (upper inner diameter), Da (lower outer diameter) and H (unloaded height). In addition, if known, the specification of the maximum force or a force and a required height. With this information, we can determine a suitable spring for your intended use from the hundreds of possible variants.
We manufacture Evolut springs according to dimensions / force specifications or samples from dimensions from 15×0.8 to 200×15 in the following dimensions:
Di: from 15 mm to approx. 100 mm
Da: from 50 mm to approx. 260mm
H: from 60 mm to approx. 300 mm
The combination of Di, H, number of turns and material cross-section determines the minimum possible outer diameter of the spring and the forces.
