Compression Springs

We manufacture a wide range of round compression springs to
individual requirements and keep a large selection of materials in stock.
Supply us with a drawing or enter the appropriate details on our contact
form and we will be happy to provide you with a quotation.

How they work

Compression springs offer resistance along the axis when there is an application of compressive force. The spring will try to push back to return to its original position when a load is applied. These helical springs can store energy or resist force, depending on the requirements of a specific application. In fact, these springs are considered the most efficient in energy storage. As a compression springs manufacturer we can produce concave, conical or convex shape, or a blend of all these forms. There is also the standard form which is the straight coil spring.

Compression spring common uses

One traditional use of compression springs is on buttons that have to return to their original position after pressing. Stainless steel compression springs are suitable for automotive applications such as suspension. There are some firearms that use these springs in their firing mechanism. Other uses include ballpoint pens, electronics, cell phones, lawn mowers, stamp presses and medical devices among others. A compression springs manufacturer must consider certain dimensions when producing products for varied uses. The wire, inner and outer diameter, spring rate, solid length and free length are some of the parameters that will matter. The ends are also essential when buying stainless steel compression springs.
