Custom Compression Springs


Compression Springs

Compression springs have applications in several industries that people use in their everyday lives today. Produced in a range of shapes, materials, and sizes, compression springs are what most people think of as a “standard spring.” Mid-West Spring and Stamping has the experience and capability to produce your custom compression spring for whatever your final application is.

What is a Compression Spring?

A compression spring is an open coil, helical spring that is wound to resist compression along the axis of wind. Compression springs are designed to give resistance against a load that is placed on them and are one of the most efficient energy storage designs available. However, the energy that can be stored in a compression spring and the stiffness, or rate, is directly dependent on the spring’s material, number of coils, and wire diameter.

There are four compression spring types and shapes including:

  • Conical
  • Hourglass or Convex
  • Barrel or Concave
  • Reduce Ends

Several factors and the spring’s final application must be understood and considered when selecting the type of compression spring for the project.
