In order to do their job – resist linear compression – compression springs are installed over shafts or rods or into round holes. When the spring experiences pressure from a force pressing on its axis, the spaces between the coils constrict and the entire spring becomes shorter. The more pressure or weight that is placed on the spring, the more energy or strength the spring has to push back. Compression springs respond to the weight suppressing it with unwavering strength in an effort to return to its initial height.
Compression springs are extremely powerful and can be designed and manufactured in countless sizes. Because of this, compression springs are ideal for a diverse range of applications – most living in your everyday, such as:
