Mechanical Barrel Springs

As a manufacturer of custom mechanical springs, IDC Spring can design, build, and ship a spring for any application you may need.

A barrel spring is a variation of the standard compression spring that’s characterized by its wider middle dimensions and narrower top and bottom diameters. Depending on the need, barrel springs can feature a telescopic design where the smaller coils fit inside the larger coils during compression, as well as a non-telescoping configuration.

Common Barrel Spring Applications

Graphic showing that barrel springs are commonly used in the toy, automotive, furniture, and bottling industries.

Barrel springs are suitable for most applications where it is necessary to produce force in a linear direction and where superior stability is essential. Industries that frequently make use of barrel springs in their manufacturing processes include automotive, toy, furniture and bottling procedures that require the mixing of a powdered substance with water or other liquid.

No matter what you’re manufacturing, the success or failure of your products and brand are closely aligned with the quality of those products. At IDC Spring, we are focused on creating the products of the highest quality that you’ll find anywhere among barrel spring manufacturers.

Barrel Spring Challenges

Barrel springs do present certain design challenges due to the fact that the force they create may not always be linear. The cessation of linear force occurs when the coils start to telescope on the spring. Design restrictions may lead to what is known as a solid height conflict, which results in the inability to achieve additional coil compression past a certain point.

This can be remedied by designing the spring so that the smaller coils at the top and bottom will telescope into the larger coils in the middle, which will reduce the spring’s solid height. As an experienced barrel spring manufacturer in the U.S., we create our springs to mitigate any challenges inherent to the design of barrel springs. We have a wealth of experience in creating barrel and other types of springs, and we apply that experience and knowledge toward creating exceptional parts that help you manufacture exceptional products.
