What happens when you hydraulic press a car spring?

By Deeq on 17 Nov 2016 in Other blogs

I'm pretty sure you've all seen your fair share of hydraulic press videos, crushing a bowling ball, baseball, metal, glass, plastic and many other crush-able stuff. But ever wondered what would happen when you attempt to crush a car coil spring? Want to know how to tell how good your coil springs are?

The only machine that can answer that question without boring us with engineering diagrams or physics equations is the hydraulic press. So how far can the atom smasher compress the spring of a modern Toyota Corolla?

Given what springs like to do when pushed to their limit, the precautions during this test were very prudent; we can certainly picture this experiment ending badly for unprotected bystanders or the camera. Needless to say, the amount of travel applied to the spring greatly exceeded what the Corolla's springs are allowed to do.
