Compression Springs Vs. Extension Springs.
Compression Springs have the exact opposite function of Extension springs within the spectrum of Spring Engineering. Compression Springs have one function: to keep two components away as much as possible by acting as a buffer between these two items. Extension springs on the other hand “extend” components and bring them together. Each has a coil design (as many springs do) for durability, elasticity, and strength. Each type works in a very different way, but they both have tons of stored or potential energy.
