Springs are defined as elastic objects used in order to store mechanical forms of energy. Commonly made out of hardened steel, these springs may also be made out of non-ferrous or non-iron metals like bronze, titanium and beryllium copper. There are also small and big versions for iron springs.
Classification of springs?
Springs are actually classified depending on different sets of criteria. Sometimes, the classification depends upon the quality of the spring and at times it will depend upon the load. Material components of the spring are also used in the classification.

According to the load, springs may be classified as tension or extension springs, torsional springs and compression springs. Tension and extension springs depend upon the so-called axial load while torsional springs make use of torsional force also known as mechanical stress placed on a twisted object.
There are several types of common iron springs utilized by many businesses. One type is the cantilever spring characterized by fixing it only on one end. Next is the coil or helical spring that is made out of winding iron wires rotating around cylinders.
Beside the common types are other forms of iron springs employed in various applications. Gas springs, ideal springs, mainsprings, and spring washers are also found on the list. These springs are used in making windup toys and flashlights as well as in allowing clocks and watches work.
