Compression Springs

A compression spring is an open-coil helical spring that offers resistance to a compressive force applied axially. They are the most common spring configuration and are one of the most efficient energy storage devices around. When you apply pressure to a compression spring, making it shorter, it pushes back against the load, trying to get back into its original length. Compression springs can be formed in many shapes including cylindrical, conical, barrel and hourglass, the coils of which are usually placed over a rod or fitted inside a hole. As manufacturers on compression springs in the UK, we can supply you with ground or unground ends.

Adaptable Solutions for Product Compression

Alongside the variety of shapes that we are able to design and create at Airedale Springs, we also offer a range of materials to ensure that your spring performs in the required way. This means that we can manufacture your springs in stainless steel, or a number of other materials, such as beryllium copper, depending on the product compression capabilities that you need.

Furthermore, with our state of the art CNC equipment, we can manufacture compression springs in the UK to the specific dimensions required for your product using camera or laser measuring sustems.
