A precision spring is an elastic mechanical object that stores mechanical energy. Generally, a precision spring is shaped in the form a coil. The precision spring is used in such places where a load is applied to the spring resulting in the decreasing in size of the spring. An extension spring is also a type of compression spring. When an extension spring is used in an application, then if we apply the load on object then, where the load applied results in the stretching of the spring. Hence the name extension spring is given. A torsion spring is used when a torque load is applied to a spring resulting a torque rotation of the spring.
Covid -19 impact on industry -
COVID-19 pandemic has shut-down the production of various products in the precision spring market industry, mainly owing to the prolonged lockdown in major global countries. This has hampered the growth of precision spring market significantly from last few months, as is likely to continue during 2020.
COVID-19 has already affected the sales of equipment and machinery in the first quarter of 2020 and is likely to cause a negative impact on the market growth throughout the year.
The major demand for equipment and machinery was previously noticed from giant manufacturing countries including the U.S., Germany, Italy, the UK, and China, which is badly affected by the spread of coronavirus, thereby halting the demand for equipment and machinery.
Further, potential impact of the lockdown is currently vague and financial recovery of companies is totally based on its cash reserves. Equipment and machinery companies can afford a full lockdown only for a few months, after which the players would have to modify their investment plans.
Equipment and machinery manufacturers must focus on protecting their workforce, operations, and supply chains to respond toward immediate crises and find new ways of working after COVID-19
Top impacting factors: Market Scenario Analysis, Trends, Drivers and Impact Analysis
The demand is high for precision spring market due to their use high use in machines, lightweight springs. Their use in aerospace, health industry are making it useful and high in demand.
Rise in demand due to light weight of the precision spring
There is huge growth in demand of these precise springs as they have irreplaceable use in machines of industry. The Increase in penetration of light-weight, thermally insulated carbon composite springs made from carbon fiber reinforced polymer (CFRP) is increasing the demand for precision springs across the globe. There is always need for innovative, lightweight precision springs among engineers that is increasing the demand for precision springs across the globe. Also, carbon composite springs are about 60% lighter than traditional springs.
Perhaps the biggest advantage of composites is their high strength-to-weight ratio. Carbon fiber weighs about 25% as much as steel and 70% as much as aluminum, and is much stronger and stiffer than both materials per weight .other factor for considering Composites spring is that it never rust, regardless of their environment as they are prone to corrosion when bonded to metal parts but still Composites have less fracture toughness than metals but more than most polymers. Due to their high dimensional stability allows them to maintain their shape, whether hot or cold, wet or dry, due to this reason ,it makes them a popular material for outdoor structures like wind turbine blades. Engineers prefers composites over traditional materials to reduce maintenance costs and ensure long-term stability, major benefits for structures that are designed to last decades.
Also, composites give design options that is not possible with traditional materials. Composites allow for part consolidation that is a single composite part can replace a full assembly of metal parts. Over 90% of recreational boat hulls are made from composites, in part because fiberglass can be molded into a wide range of boat shapes. These benefits of composite over spring saves production time and reduces the maintenance costs in the long run. Composites spring are also considered easier to produce.
