Type 301 stainless steel is typically used for most applications. High-carbon steel, Inconel and other materials may be required.

Life Cycle & Force

The life of the constant force spring is predictable. A life cycle is an extension and retraction of either the whole spring or any portion of it. A low estimate of cycle life will lead to early failure. A high estimate, which makes the spring larger and more expensive than necessary. The force of the spring should be equal to the requirement of the application. The normal tolerance for a constant force spring is +/-10%.
