Spring Types

Spring Types

Tension Spring

The spring is designed to operate with a tension load, so the spring stretches as the load is applied to it.

Compression springs

Designed to operate with a compression load, so the compression spring gets shorter as the load is applied to it.

Torsion spring

Unlike the above types in which the load is an axial force, the load applied to a torsion spring is a torque or twisting force, and the end of the spring rotates through an angle as the load is applied.
