Spring Calculator - Helical Compression

Helical (round wire) Spring calculator, for designing and manufacturing compression springs. To calculate the rate, enter the wire size, diameter and number of coils required to construct the spring. The new improved Helical Compression Spring Calculator allows you to print or email the calculations for later reference.
