Compressed Spring

Definition of a compressed spring: A compressed spring is a type of spring that produces linear force.  The force is produced when a weight is applied to either the top or bottom of the spring.  There are many variations of a compressed spring such a conical compressed spring, variable pitch compressed spring, and barrel compressed spring.  Each spring produces force in a unique way within your design.  When using a compressed spring in your application make sure you are designing your spring to get the greatest amount of force in the most economical way.

A compressed spring may travel all the way to solid height, meaning all coils are touching, or may only be able to travel a restricted amount of force due to stress and other factors.  When designing your compressed spring make sure it can safely travel to solid height if you need it to do so.  The easiest way to determine if your spring can safely travel to solid height is by using our compression spring calculator
