MISPL manufactures custom compression springs to the exact requirements of our customers’ needs. Instead of going over what the technical definition of a compression spring is, we would like to share what we believe will help people the most when designing or buying compression springs.
Compression springs are a type of wire spring used in everything from appliances to motorized equipment, motors and more because it is the required type of spring. Compression springs are compressed by load acting upon them or their ends are compressed, the design of the wire tries to return the spring back to the original shape thus pushing the load back.
One can control the action of the compression spring by how it is designed. The diameter of the coil, the numbers of coils, the style of the ends even the length and diameter and shape of the wire can all make different compression springs. This is why it is so important to have all the right dimensions when ordering a spring so its performance will meet the needs of the application.
