Compression springs are the most common and most instantly recognisable springs of all. In basic terms, they are designed to resist compressive forces. As an ‘elastic’ coil, compression springs shorten in length when under pressure, and store mechanical energy within their form whilst they are under this stress. Because they can be manufactured in various shapes, sizes and with different ends or wire types, they can find themselves in a wide range of applications, including valves and electrical switches.

Compression springs are commonly coiled as a constant diameter cylinder, below are several types of compression springs including:

Conical compression springs

Concave compression springs

convex compression springs

These are used individually or in conjunction with each other. Round wire is predominant in compression springs because it is readily available and adaptable to standard coiler tooling.

Compression springs should be stress relieved to remove residual forming stresses produced by the coiling operation. Depending on design and space limitations, compression springs may be categorized according to stress level . Please view the categories below.
