Compression Springs

Definition of a Compression Spring:

A compression spring is a spring that will produce linear force by pushing back against forces that are applied to it. A weight or force will cause the compression spring to compress down, and if the spring is designed correctly the spring will push back against the weight causing it to return to its original state.

Think of a common example like a pogo stick. When you apply your weight to the pedals of the pogo stick the spring will compress and when you begin to hop the spring will push back against your weight propelling you off the ground returning the spring to its original state. This motion is repeated every time you hop off the ground.

Acxess Spring can work with you on creating the exact custom spring you are looking for. As you can see from the images below we can have multiple closed coils at one or both ends of the spring to add extra support to the spring if it is going over a shaft. We can also manufacture springs with large amount of pitch allowing you to generate a lot of force in a small amount of travel. You compression spring can also be customized with multiple outer diameter creating a cone, barrel or barbell shape on the spring.
