Abstract: The effect of stress relieving on static load for helical compression springs made of stainless-steel wire is presented in this paper. The most important parameter in spring design is spring rate and static load. In many applications, static load at a specific compressed length is an important design requirement. Tempering is a stress-relieving treatment that is performed at temperatures ranging from 180°C to 330°C. In this study, twelve different helical compression springs with different wire diameters and spring indexes are stress relieved. All spring samples are subjected to a static load test. The variation in static load is observed. This research is useful for spring manufacturers.
