Calculate the length of wire needed for custom compression springs with our easy-to-use wire length calculator. Get the perfect fit for your spring design!
A Compression Spring is a type of open-coil spring that is wound to resist compression along its axis. It is made from spring steel and is used to store and release mechanical energy. It is commonly used in automotive engines, large stamping presses, medical devices, electronics, and sensitive instrumentation devices.
For those needing to calculate the length of the spring wire, there is an online Compression Spring Wire Length Calculator that requires the mean diameter and total number of coils to be provided.
Compression Spring Wire Length = Π x D x N
- D = Mean Diameter
- N = Total Coils
