Things to consider with Compression Springs:

  1. How is your spring going to be located, in a hole, over a peg?
  2. If in a hole what is the diameter of the hole?
  3. If over a peg what is the diameter of the peg?
  4. What pressure is required and at what movement/deflection?
  5. What total movement/deflection do you require?
  6. What can the solid height of the compressed coils be?
  7. What environment will the spring be working in; this will help determine material selection?
