Compression Springs

Compression Springs

Compression springs come in several options suitable for a variety of applications and can be used as pure energy accumulators, shock absorbers, vibration dampers or force generators.

Springs are among the most useful and important mechanical components. Moreover, springs are considered an important part of most assemblies and mechanisms.

Looking at their application, there are several types of springs and obviously, the material used in them is different. Victory Spring are spring manufacturers in Canada that develop high quality springs especially compression springs.

Selecting the right spring materials and dimensions is crucial for the success of your project and can help you get the longest service life possible. Our spring design guide explains all this in great detail or just call 780-442-4020 for immediate access to one of our in house engineers. They will be happy to share their expertise and answer any questions you may have.

Our experienced team of in-house engineers at Victory Spring can help you find the exact compression springs for your needs and ensure you’re not overloading or overstressing them, which can lead to damage and added expenses that could have been avoided. We can also design custom solutions and inventory programs to keep you stocked.

Compression springs are of a specific design and we will take a deep look at each type. Victory Spring have one of the largest compression spring inventories in the area.  Before we go into further details, let’s define what a compression spring is and how it works.

Compression Springs – Engineering Marvels of the Modern World:

A compression spring is essentially an open-coil helical spring that offers the utmost resistance to a compressive force axially. Moreover, the compression spring is coiled at a constant diameter. The reason is that they can be coiled in other springs upon demand.

The different forms of compression may include concave (barrel), conical, convex (hourglass), or any other combination. These types of springs are typically used to store energy or to resist force.
All compression springs are suitable for any type of application. Upon our clients’ request, we offer both custom and standard springs.

Characteristics of Compression Springs:

To date, most types of these springs are used or designed to oppose the compression. Furthermore, they help the product to retain the un-compressed length as soon as the applied force is released.
You might have seen these types of springs in bicycles, motorbikes, cars, and other transport systems.

Service Life:

Victory Spring is among the best spring manufacturers in Canada that is devoted to offering top-quality springs with long service life.

Therefore, if the critical force against the deflection linearity is required then you must ensure the employment of 60 to 80% of available deflection. Therefore, the application of these springs directly depends on their service life.


At Victory Spring, we are proud to offer the best quality products to our customers. To quantify our claims, we have always prioritized the Quality Assurance of our products.

Spring quality is only achieved by using the highest quality materials available. As a leading spring manufacturer, we utilize only the highest quality spring wire while fabricating our springs. Moreover, we’re always keen to serve our customers with several options of custom springs.

The highly qualified experts at Victory Spring make the best use of our knowledge while transforming stainless steel, beryllium copper, and phosphor bronze into the quality products for which we are known.

Types of Compression Springs:

As discussed in one of the above paragraphs, compression springs can be found in a wide range of shapes and sizes depending on your need.

Each type is used for different purposes; therefore, there is a huge difference in tension and force of each spring. Following are the main types of compression springs:

Compression Springs – Convex Springs:

Barrel-shaped springs or convex springs consist of coils having larger diameters located in the middle and coils with smaller diameters located on both ends.

Upon compression, the coils get fit within each other because of their unique design. Victory Spring recommends the use of these springs for stability and resistance. Automotive, furniture and other industries make use of these springs.

Compression Springs – Concave Springs:

Hourglass springs or Concave springs come with narrow coils in the middle of the spring. The coils at both ends are a bit large thus helps the spring to ensure stability over a particular point. Keeping this in view, we also offer springs that stay centered over any point.

Compression Springs – Conical Springs:

Tapered Springs or Conical Springs contain a cone-like shape. One end has a larger diameter while the other ends have a smaller diameter. This design helps the coils to provide a gradual change or taper in size.
Most conical springs are designed in such a way that they can fix into another one. We take care of everything while developing a quality product for you.

Compression Springs – Straight Coil Springs:

Straight Coil Springs are the only ones that have coils of the same diameter. These coil springs are among the most common springs used in everyday life.

Compression Springs – Variable Pitch Springs:

The diameters between the coils of variable pitch springs are different. They usually depend on the length of the spring.

Compression Springs – Volute Spring:

Just like Conical Springs, the volute spring is a cone-shaped compression spring. However, the difference is that it doesn’t have wire coils. The coils are made up of a curled sheet of metal or any other material.

Compression Spring Ends

The end coils of compression springs can be finished a few different ways to accommodate various applications:

Compression Springs - Closed & Ground

Closed & Ground

Compression Springs - Closed & Not Ground

Closed & Not Ground

Compression Springs - Open



The helix can also be specified as right handed or left handed.
