Power springs used in recoil start systems

source:Qianye Precision time:2022-9-14

 Small engines are well known and are commonly used in lawn mowers and garden tractors and various other garden and lawn maintenance tools, in addition to other environments. Typically, each of these engines is equipped with a recoil starting system that includes a rope that rotates the starting mechanism to engage a flywheel that is connected to the engine for starting purposes. Once the rope starter is pulled, the recoil mechanism is always provided with the engine to reel the starter rope back to the starting mechanism.

  The recoil portion of the starter mechanism is operated by a power spring that tensions when the operator pulls on the starter rope. Once the rope is fully pulled, the operator releases it. Most power springs on the market often fail, so the recoil rewinding mechanism needs to be disassembled and the spring replaced.
And replacing the spring is a tedious task because the operator needs to keep the spring in the cavity inside the recoil starter pulley and then coil the spring into the pulley mechanism while keeping the spring in the coiled position and under sufficient tension. Such a procedure requires not only skill, but sometimes infinite patience. That’s why the quality of the power spring is a top priority – after all, no one wants to change the power spring inside too often.
  Shenzhen Qianye Precision Metal Co., Ltd. was established in 2006 to supply high-quality stainless steel springs for many fields. Through continuous efforts, 20 patent certificates and 4 spring equipment software copyrights have been granted by the State Intellectual Property Office, and an enviable industry influence has been built. The company designs and manufactures a wide range of power springs, constant force springs, constant torsion springs, variable force springs and motor brush spring. Qianye works in close partnership with its customers in developing bespoke solutions to meet their individual needs. In order to offer better services, it has been continuously investing in production technology and supply chain. The company itself is a stainless steel raw material manufacturer. Because of the support of raw materials, it is not subject to material restrictions when making spring products; special material requirements can be developed and manufactured; furthermore, the delivery time is greatly shortened. Quality is of the utmost importance and Qianye are certified to ISO9001, ISO14001 and national high-tech enterprise with a big emphasis on the training of its employees. Its spirit is “treat people with sincerity and create things with sincerity” to ensure it strives for excellence.

Spring is a kind of mechanical part that uses elasticity to work. The parts made of elastic materials deform under the action of external force, and return to the original state after removing the external force. It is generally made of spring steel, and the types of springs are complex and diverse. Qianye company has strong production strength and a number...

We often find that the spring we make is wrongly used as a stop mechanism in the design. This design defect can occur in all types of springs, including constant force spring, constant torque spring and power spring. For example, consider a simple cable extension product in which the spring retracts the cable into the housing. If the spring is completely...

 In most types of springs, when the spring is compressed and then relaxed, the force applied is proportional to the distance the spring is stretched. Unlike ordinary springs, constant force springs do not comply with this rule. Due to the physical design of constant force spring, its return force remains constant. Therefore, constant force springs are useful in many applications that require consistent recoil....
