Application of constant torque spring in 3D printer

source:Qianye Precision time:2022-9-14

3D printing, also known as three-dimensional printing, is a kind of rapid prototyping technology. It uses adhesive materials such as powdered metal or plastic to construct zero objects through multi-layer printing layer by layer. Mold making, industrial design is used to build models, and is now developing into product manufacturing, forming “direct digital manufacturing”. Some high-value applications (such as hips or teeth, or aircraft parts) already have printed parts.

The constant torque spring is applied to the 3D printer. This innovative case is a spring motor drive system. Like the common design, it is impossible for a spring to achieve the torque we need. As you can see we are using three constant torque springs in one mechanism with an output drum in the middle connecting the three springs. Therefore, it can generate three times the output torque of only one spring, and this design can achieve the purpose of providing maximum torque in a limited space. This connection method is easier to assemble than using screw connections.

       When it comes to spring design, design engineers must consider many factors. These factors include not only part function and mechanism design, but also detailed material selection, part connection installation method and size. It’s all about manufacturability. Feasibility analysis is required to ensure the functionality meets the customer’s needs.
       From the initial design stage of the spring set to production and final assembly, Qianye can save customers product development time, find optimized solutions beyond your expectations, no manufacturability constraints in product design, and the best product quality. In terms of design and development, Qianye Precision has many successful cooperation projects. These constant force springs are special-purpose components within the customer’s new product organization. We look forward to receiving your inquiries about new product development.
       Shenzhen Qianye Precision Metal Co., Ltd. is designed for customer-specific applications. Using professional technology to meet your specified requirements, we sincerely recommend that customers obtain consulting services from our R&D engineers in the early stage of product introduction and development. Design, develop, and sample products according to your needs, so that your products can find the best solution to meet your application needs.

Dampers are widely used in building structures to dissipate energy and reduce vibration. However, the traditional damper has complex structure, poor durability and corrosion resistance, and low working stability. After using for a period of time, the damper is prone to aging and deformation can not be restored, so it can not be used anymore. Most of the existing dampers...

Removal or extraction of the lead may be difficult. As mentioned above, the body's natural healing process forms scar tissue over and along the lead, and possibly at its tip, thereby encasing at least a portion of the lead and fastening it even more securely in the patient's body. In addition, the lead and/or tissue may become attached to the...

The variable force springs can break through the traditional spring affected by Hooke ' s law, so that the stroke and force are no longer proportional to increase, but can achieve a variety of elastic displacement combinations such as negative slope stepped fixed force. According to the needs of mechanical engineering, the relationship between elastic force and displacement stroke can be used...
