Compression Springs are open-coil helical springs wound or constructed to oppose compression along the axis of wind. Typically coil springs are either fitted inside a hole or placed over a rod. When a load is placed on a compression coil spring, making it shorter, it resists against the load and tries to get back to its original length. Compression springs offer resistance to linear compressing forces (push) and are one of the most efficient energy storage devices available.
COMPRESSION SPRING CHARACTERISTICS
- Helical coiled spring with a pitch to create an axial pushing force.
- Typically cylindrical in shape but can be formed in different configurations such as barrel, hourglass, and conical. Spring ends can be ground to improve squareness.
- Round wire is the most common for this type of spring but other wires can be used.
- State-of-the-art machines are capable of creating infinite shapes and sizes of springs to meet any application.
- Two point coiling machines yield accurate springs that hold extremely rigorous tolerances.
Basic requirement for spring design:
- Wire size [d]
- Coil Diameter: Inner [I.D.] Outer [O.D.] or Mean [D]
- Free Length[Ho]
- Loads at corresponding deflection [P1, P2, H1, H2]
