Introduction to Compression Spring

Definition of compression spring 

The compression spring (compression spring) is a helical spring that bears the pressure. The cross-section of the material used is mostly circular, and it is also made of rectangular and multi-strand steel yams. The springs are generally of equal pitch, and the shapes of the compression springs are: cylindrical, conical, convex and concave shapes and a small amount of non-circular shapes, etc., there is a certain gap between the rings of the compression spring, and the spring shrinks and deforms when it is subjected to an external load, storing the deformation energy.

The characteristics of compression spring

The compression spring provides resistance to the external load pressure. The compression spring is generally a wire coiled at an equal pitch and has a fixed wire diameter. Compression springs use multiple open coils to provide resistance against external load pressure (such as gravity pressing down on a wheel, or your body against a mattress). That is, they push back against external pressure. The light compression springs are generally a wire coiled at an equal pitch and has a fixed wire diameter. In addition, there are also conical compression springs, or a combination of conical and linear springs. Depending on the field of application, compression springs can be used to resist pressure and/or store energy. Round wire is the most commonly used compression spring, but there are also compression springs made from square, rectangular and specially shaped wires.

Application of compression spring

Wire springs for bulk compression springs are used in everything from home appliances to motorized equipment, motors, etc. as it is the type of spring required. By a load acting on them or their ends are compressed, the compression springs are compressed. The wire is designed to attempt to return the spring back to its original shape, thereby pushing the load back.

Main application directions: medical respiratory equipment, medical mobile equipment, hand tools, home care equipment, shock absorption, engine valve springs.
