Compression Springs: Round & Rectangular Wire


Jun 09, 9:00 AM – 12:00 PM GMT+1
Online Training via Zoom


This course will give you everything you need to start designing compression springs made from round and rectangular wire in our Spring Calculator Professional software and provide useful information, tips, and techniques for those who already use it. It is split into three parts:

  • Basic design theory covering nomenclature, definitions, fundamental equations
  • Demonstration of how to use all relevant parts of Spring Calculator Professional showing where all the topics discussed fit in, including some example design problems
  • Q&A where attendees can ask any questions. Further design problems will be provided so that you can try it out yourself and get help.

This course is for anyone who has bought (or is thinking of buying) Spring Calculator Professional.  Gain a thorough understanding of its uses and the theory that it is modelling.

No detailed knowledge of springs is assumed to benefit those from any industry sector, not just spring manufacturing.

It is delivered by Dr Richard Dignall, who leads our software development team and is the tutor for our Practical Spring Design course.
