Lee Spring offers many different types of spring to suit a vast array of application, including various types of compression spring.
A compression spring is the most common metal spring configuration. It has a spiral form, with open coils and when a force is applied, it offers resistance.
The most common shaped compression spring is a cylindrical straight up and down shape, but other shapes can include barrel, conical and hourglass.
Compression springs are used in a wide variety of applications, ranging from automotive engines and large stamping presses to major appliances and lawn mowers. Smaller applications include medical devices, cell phones, electronics and sensitive instrumentation devices.
For applications that require low solid height and an increased resistance to surging cone shaped springs can be used.
