What is a Compression Spring?
A compression spring is a type of spring, usually made of metal. Compression springs are known as one of the most energy-efficient storage devices available. Compression springs are conical and are fabricated from round wire. They are used to resist force, store mechanical energy, or both, depending on use. The elasticity of compression springs is essential to their variety of uses.
Here are a few more facts that you should know about compression springs:
- Compression springs resist compression.
- Mechanical energy is created when compression springs are compressed. Compressing a spring produces mechanical energy.
- When pressure is applied, compression springs will push back.
- The more pressure applied, the more energy the spring has to bounce back.
- A compression spring is a type of open-coil helical spring.

Stanley Spring is proud to offer compression springs that withstand different stress levels. This is regardless of application, whether loading or deflecting. It’s important to note that stress and stress range dictate the life of compression springs. If the stress range is high, the greatest stress level should be lower for a longer life. If the spring experiences static loads only or if the stress range is low, high stresses may be used, without having an adverse effect on the spring life.
When we design and fabricate any custom spring we are careful to bear in mind purpose, compressing forces and spring rate. “Spring rate” is calculated by measuring the weight required to compress a spring by one inch.
We can make compression springs in a variety of spring wire lengths and springs in a range of heights for a vast number of different purposes.
