Spring constant is a term used to describe the stiffness of a spring. It is a measure of the amount of force required to compress or stretch a spring by a certain distance. Spring constant is an important parameter used in designing and selecting springs for various applications. Knowing the spring constant allows engineers to determine the load capacity of a spring and its deflection under a given load. This information is critical for us to design springs that can meet the specific requirements, such as maintaining a constant force, absorbing shock, or returning a component to its original position.
