Design and manufacture a complete set of constant force springs for a variety of applications in almost all industries, from medical care to aerospace and general household products. The constant force spring is different from the traditional spiral wound spring. They are made of pre tensioned high-yield metal strips (usually stainless steel) rather than wires.
Constant force springs are classified as “tension springs”. When winding, the metal strip resists uncoiling with nearly constant resistance. When extended, the internal stress of the metal resists any load force at a nearly constant rate. Once the spring extends to a length of 1.25 times its diameter, it reaches full load and produces a nearly constant force. According to the size of the spring and the load it supports, the fatigue life cycle of the constant force spring is between 2500 and 1000000 times.
Constant force springs are commonly used in automotive engineering, aerospace engineering, medical and retail. Some common applications are: Cable retractor, motor, spacecraft, fitness equipment, door closer, hose retriever, nuclear magnetic resonance scanner, X-ray machine, point of sale display, toys, furniture accessories, retractable tape measure or dog line, retractable vacuum cleaner line, etc.
Material selection is important, as is the thickness and width of the metal strip. The most commonly used metal is grade 301 stainless steel because it can make consistent high-quality and strong constant force springs. Other materials are available, such as high carbon steel, Inconel, etc., which may be more suitable for springs that need to resist high load forces.
To select or manufacture the correct spring, you must know the approximate initial force or load to overcome when the spring reaches the “constant force” stage. The higher the initial load, the larger the spring diameter you need.
In addition, the spring end details need to be designed to be fixed or connected to the components that will curl and unfold.
To determine the size of a constant force spring, certain guidelines must be followed. To calculate the total length of the spring strip, the following formula can be used: total length = circumference wound on the drum + initial deflection + maximum working deflection (ID x π x 1.5) + I F + W F.
External factors will limit the life cycle of constant force spring.
For example, debris or particles can clog the system, slowing or hindering coiling and deployment. If the spring mechanism is open to the element or is often in contact with corrosive fluid, corrosion may occur, affecting the movement of the spring. Extreme temperatures can also affect spring operation. This may be of particular concern in aerospace engineering.
In recent years, several safety briefings have successively reported shutdown accidents caused by carbon brush or rotor collector ring failure of large generator units, resulting in great economic losses to the enterprise.Carbon brushes are motor brushes. Improper maintenance and use of the carbon brush of the generator set during operation will cause accident load reduction or even shutdown. Factors...
The diversification of modern life, people in the pursuit of high quality life at the same time also constantly in innovation. Leisure, shopping traditional products only meet material needs, people began to pursue diversified products. Let me feel deeper, such as display lifting design, this design to work and life has brought a lot of convenience. The reason why 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...
The lifting window is different from the traditional internal opening, external opening and ordinary push-pull mode, but adopts the opening mode of lifting up and down. Because it is mainly popular in North America, it is also called American lifting window. It is one of the two major door and window categories in the world. The lifting window is more compact than...
Споменаването на диабет, мисля, че всеки не е странно. Данните показват, че към края на 2021 г. общият брой на диабет тип 2 в Китай е бил около 120 милиона. Когато пероралните хипогликемични средства са стандартизирани и контролът на кръвната захар все още е незадоволителен, инжектирането на инсулин е неизбежен избор за лечение на диабет тип 2. Мнозина може би не знаят...
