Tension Spring | KB Delta

Springs provide a mechanism for storing energy. Most springs are based on a wound coil, which takes the form of a spiral. When force is applied to the spring, its shape can either be extended or compressed. Once released, the spring generally returns to its original shape unless the amount of force exerted exceeds the […]
