A little bit about compression springs
The fundamental role of a compression spring is to generate force opposing its compression, that offers resistance and support to diverse mechanical applications. To conserve space in the spring’s design, the bar is wound into a helical shape, allowing axial loading. Consequently, the coils that experience deflection during usage are subjected to torsional stress. The development of compression springs has been a subject of extensive research, representing about half of all springs manufactured today.
In comparison to torsion or extension springs, compression springs are better-suited for applications that require high load-bearing capacity or there is a need to simplify the assembly process. Additionally, compression springs offer more predictable behavior than torsion springs, which can exhibit nonlinear responses. Their linear compression and extension characteristics make them easier to design and analyze, ensuring more stable and consistent performance in various applications.
