Acxess Spring is a specialist in the manufacturing of compressed spring. We manufacture compressed spring in a variety of different wire diameters, outer diameters, and free lengths. Our manufacturing capabilities for normal compressed springs are from 0.006 inch wire diameter to 1.000 inch wire diameter. Any of our regular compression springs can be manufactured with variable pitch. On the tapered compression springs we can manufacture within a wire diameter of 0.006 inches to 0.100 inches. Please see our services
page for a complete list of Acxess Spring services. Acxess Spring has the capabilities to manufacture from one spring to millions. We are here from prototype to production. If you would like to purchase a compressed spring

Compressed Spring Applications:
Compressed springs can work in a variety of applications. It would be most beneficial for you to use a compressed spring in an application where you need to produce force linearly when the spring is moving from fully extended to compressed. If you need to produce linear force in a pulling direction you will need to use and extension spring. As you can see in the animation to the right there is a motor that is moving the arm of the apparatus in a counter clockwise direction. Every time the arm of the apparatus makes a circle it pushes up against the spring and causes it to compress. The compressed spring will then produce linear force again an object, which in turn will allow the application to function properly.
It is very important to correctly determine the amount of force a spring needs to generate in order to achieve your intended goal. For example in the animation to the right, if the spring was too strong the arm would not be able to compress the spring when it rotates and the application would not function. Equally if the spring was too weak, the arm would compress the spring completely and generate weaker linear force than is needed and the application would not work correctly. To see more information on calculating the proper strength of your compressed spring please see our compression spring technical page.
Compressed Spring Solid Height:
The image to the right shows a very common example of a compressed spring working all the way to solid height. Solid height for compression springs is defined as the point at which all wires in your spring are touching and no more force can be exerted by the spring. Solid height plays are crucial role in compression spring design.
Force the application to the right to function the force of someone's finger needs to compress the spring all the way to solid height, which causes the tip of the pen to click out of the opening at the top. Similarly the person will force the spring to solid height again releasing the clasp and allowing the tip of the pen to be placed back inside the opening.
