Compression Springs

Compression and extension springsCompression springs resist applied compression forces by utilising the energy that they store within. Commonly made from round wire, they are normally cylindrical in shape.

A compression spring may be coiled ‘left or right hand’, and several end options can apply. The most commonly used are ‘closed (squared) only’ or ‘closed & ground’.

Marsh Springs produces a wide range of compression springs. We have automatic high-speed coilers for effective large volume production or we can make up ‘1 or 2’ specific springs for any urgent requirements.
