Springs are fundamental mechanical components which form the basis of many mechanical systems. A spring can be defined to be an elastic member which exerts a resisting force when its shape is changed. A metal wire spring that functions in a spring mechanism that compresses, extends, rotates, slides, pulls and exerts force when an equal or greater force is applied. A spring mechanism can exert pressure, rotational force or pulling strength in a variety of ways.
The different types of Mechanical Springs include:
