Compression Springs & Heavy Duty Compression Springs

A compression spring is an open coil helical spring that offers resistance to compressive forces. At Diamond Wire we offer helical compression springs and heavy duty compression springs that are designed to withold that offered resistance throughout the duration of compressive applied forces, or to store energy in the push mode. Compression springs are the most common spring configuration and are found in many applications such as automotive, aerospace and consumer goods. We supply a wide variety including:

  • Helical compression springs
  • Rectangular compression springs
  • Conical compression springs
  • Barrel compression springs
  • Hourglass compression springs
  • Straight clynidrical compression springs
  • And others

Diamond Wire's various configurations are used to reduce solid height, buckling and surging, or to produce nonlinear load deflection characteristics. Energy storage is greater for rectangular wire compression springs, also called die springs, however round wire rates can be increased if springs are nested inside one another. Rectangular wire is used to reduce solid height or increase the space efficiency of the design. Most die springs are made from rectangular wire for this reason. It should also be noted that most compression springs have closed and ground ends, although there are other end configurations available depending on the particular application.

Diamond Wire Spring Company offers a complete line of custom and heavy duty compression springs to meet the needs of any industry. Learn more about our custom springs.
