What Are Compression Springs?

Compression springs offer resistance along the axis when there is an application of compressive force, as the name would suggest. In fact, these springs are considered the most efficient in terms of energy storage and one of the most versatile too.

How Do Compression Springs Work?

Compressions springs 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 and use. As a compression springs manufacturer and supplier, we can produce concave, conical or convex shapes or a blend of all these forms. There is also the standard form which is the straight coil spring.

Common Uses Of Compression Springs

One traditional and popular use of compression springs is on buttons that are required to return to their original position after pressing. Stainless steel compression springs are suitable for automotive applications, such as suspensions. There are some firearms that use these springs in their firing mechanism. Other uses include ballpoint pens, electronics, cell phones, lawnmowers, stamp presses and medical devices.

Compression springs are one of the most versatile springs and can, therefore, be used in mattresses, toys, tools and electronics. Depending on what you are using the spring for, our expert team can advise on the most suitable compression spring type and specification so your product can be utilised in the best way possible.

A compression springs manufacturer and designer 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.
