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.
Automatic advance shelves are more widely used in stores and people's lives, and are more often used for displaying and placing goods (incense hata, rosemary, etc.). However, the conventional shelf propeller has one end of the baffle on both sides fixed and the other end movable. Although in use, after the first row of goods is taken away, the second...
Eine Lagerungsvorrichtung zum Assistieren eines Patienten dient dazu, die Bewegung eines Patienten an der Patientenlagerungsvorrichtung zu unterstützen. Im Stand der Technik würde eine Pflegekraft eine Patientenhebevorrichtung oder einen Motor bedienen, indem sie die Hebevorrichtung führt, um den Patienten an der Patientenstütze anzuheben oder abzusenken. Solche Manipulationen erfordern oft die präzise Handhabung schwerer Pinzetten und Motoren ...
Sicherheitsgurt ist gleich Rettungsring. Jeder sollte die schmerzhaften Unfälle sehen, die durch das Nichttragen des Sicherheitsgurts verursacht werden. Ich glaube, jeder kennt den Sicherheitsgurt im Auto. Es ist eine Sicherheitsvorrichtung, um zu vermeiden, dass Sie während einer Kollision aus dem Auto stürzen und Tod und Verletzungen verursachen. Der Autosicherheitsgurt gilt als der billigste und effektivste Sicherheitsgurt...
Now many TV dramas will appear the figure of rowing machine, so do you know what rowing machine is? In fact, rowing machine is a low load aerobic exercise, which is now welcomed by more and more people because of its high exercise efficiency. It can not only do aerobic training, but also strengthen strength. Among large-scale fitness equipment, it...
At present, the nail gun is frequently used in the construction industry or wood industry. The nail gun is a commonly used hand-held tool with a wide variety of types. According to the power source nail gun can be divided into pneumatic and electric two categories. When users are working, they often need to change different tools in their hands....
One of the most unique spring designs is called a twin spring. Its name is derived from the characteristic of having two springs formed from the same strip of stainless steel material. These custom springs are intended to work together, in unison, doubling the force of a single spring. Twin springs are a version of a constant force spring, providing constant...
