Product Spotlight: Titanium Springs Versus Chrome Silicon Steel Springs

Titanium Springs vs steel springs

Titanium springs have several advantages over ASTM A401 chrome silicon coil springs. At right are two springs, both with 10” (254mm) free length,  275 lb/inch (48.16N/mm) rate, and the same ID 2.60” (66.04mm). Both springs are designed to similar percentage of tensile strength, relative to solid stress.

1. WEIGHT

STEEL  3.74  LBS  TITANIUM 2.34 LBS (37% Lighter)
Titanium springs are well known for weight savings

2. AVAILABLE TRAVEL FREE LENGTH TO SOLID HEIGHT

STEEL 5.88”  TITANIUM 6.34 IN (.46” INCREASE)
Titanium springs can often allow more travel, or otherwise

Increase space efficiency

3. NATURAL FREQUENCY

STEEL 93 Hz  TITANIUM  122Hz
Titanium’s higher natural frequency promotes faster response to changing forces. In high speed loading significant performance improvements are possible

4. CORROSION RESISTANCE

STEEL  - LITTLE   TITANIUM HIGHLY RESISTS CORROSION

5. MAGNETIC PROPERTIES – STEEL IS MAGNETIC, TITANIUM HIGHLY NONMAGNETIC
