Compression Springs

Helical Compressions springs are typically the most common type of spring.  Compression springs are designed to have an axial force placed on them and then can return to their original position once the force is released. Compression springs are in fact one of the most efficient energy storage devices available.

Coiling Technologies, Inc. designs and manufactures compression springs that meet your exacting specifications and perform in the most demanding and challenging industrial applications.

Custom Compression Spring Manufacturer

Coiling Technologies, Inc., engineers can provide expert design advice to assist you with your spring requirements. CTI’s expert craftsman manufacture compression springs custom manufactured to meet your specifications and requirements with little or no compromise.

To create a compression spring you need, our experts work closely with you to:

  • Assess operating conditions, functional service life, and specific load requirements
  • Determine physical dimensions, shape, and size
  • Select the proper material for the application
  • Create a spring design, including ends such closed and ground, open, squared, tangential or pigtail ends, or a combination of both.


Compression spring can be manufactured in numerous shapes. Depending on the shape, springs react differently when stress, force, or load is placed upon them.

Helical Compression is the most common spring configuration, but compression springs also can be formed into a variety of shapes and sizes:

  • Barrel
  • Conical
  • Hourglass
  • Ovate
  • Rectangular
  • Square


As one of the best compression spring manufacturers, we can produce springs with wire diameters of 0.012-inch to 2.50-inch bar for your custom spring application.

  • Body length: Free lengths up 80 inches
  • Body Diameter: Up to 24 inches.


Compression springs can be manufactured using almost any type of metal or steel, from simple carbon alloy steel to exotic metals such as titanium. Coiling Technologies, Inc. can manufacture compressions springs from almost any material.

Coiling Technologies sources only the best raw materials around the globe to manufacture our customized extension springs. The materials we use meet – and almost always – exceed OEM standards. We offer an extensive array of materials to choose from to ensure the lightest possible product that can handle the most extreme conditions.
