Compressed springs (also known as open-coil helical springs) are devices made up of helically formed coils with pitch in between that is used to push back on an applied force, or load. The compressed spring then returns to its original position when the force or load is released. However, to fit and function properly when cycled, there are several things to consider during compression spring design.
Open-coil helical springs can come in nearly any size and with varying degrees of stiffness. They even have multiple shapes that they can be formed into, depending on their application.
