 Design steps of constant torque spring
Design steps of constant torque spring

Time:2022-9-15

Constant torque spring is a constant force spring with special force moving between two spools. The spring is stored on the storage spool and wound reversely on the output spool. When released, torque is obtained from the output spool when the spring returns to its natural curvature on the storage spool. The spring does not need to be connected to the storage spool. The spring can be installed in a cavity without storing the spool at all. However, friction will then be introduced and torque requirements will change. The torque generated by the constant torque spring will increase slightly after several revolutions. Constant torque, even negative torque, is also possible. Negative gradients of up to 50% can be achieved in some applications. As for the design of constant torque spring, when considering the use of constant torque spring, it is strongly recommended that you talk with Qianye engineers and study various design parameters. Some initial design calculations can be carried out according to the following eight steps. 1. Select materials Most of the springs we produce are made of type 301 stainless steel. This material is readily available and predictable. Thousands of industry engineers can assist in selecting standard sizes to speed up the process. We also use high carbon steel, Inconel and Elgiloy in various designs as needed. 2. Life expectancy This is one of the most important considerations because the life of constant torque springs is very predictable. Practical is important because it is estimated that high life cycle requirements may lead to larger and more expensive designs. Of...

 Factors affecting the rupture of power springs
Factors affecting the rupture of power springs

Time:2022-9-15

The power spring is made of stainless steel strip. A spring box is required to limit its outer diameter. The spring center is connected with the shaft. When an external force is applied to make the shaft rotate relative to the spring, the spring will roll on the shaft center and store the torque. When the external force disappears, the spring will produce the torque on the shaft or spring box.     The advantage of power spring is that it can be divided into natural power spring and pre force power spring according to its relaxed shape. In contrast, the preloaded power spring can store 25% to 55% more torque and provide more effective turns. Power springs are mainly used in products such as clockwork toys, timers and automatic rewinding devices (such as power cord, dog puller, pipe winder and automobile safety belt)     It is often seen that the scroll spring purchased will break soon after it is applied to the product. Once the scroll spring breaks, its service life will end. If spring manufacturers choose general materials and immature production technology, the service life of products will be greatly reduced. There are many factors leading to its rupture, mainly including the following factors: wrong scheme design, shortcomings of raw materials, poor production and processing and so on. The quality of power spring determines the quality of products and user experience. Take the dog leasher with scroll spring as an example.

 The importance of springs to the aerospace industry
The importance of springs to the aerospace industry

Time:2022-9-23

       Springs are an important part of many different industries, including the aerospace industry. They form the backbone of many components and allow planes, drones, satellites, solar panels, aircraft controls, valves, throttles, and more to function their way. Without the spring, the industry would not be the same. Strict military and aviation guidelines mean that all components of the aircraft, including the springs, must be of the highest quality and precision; they support a wide range of applications and reduce part weight while maintaining the highest performance standards. This makes springs vital to the aerospace industry. Without springs, we wouldn't be able to have the essentials of aerospace. For example, retractable tray tables, trunk doors, handrails, stairs and cup holders require springs to function. They help open and close many components that wouldn't exist without them—and, more importantly, springs are some of the main elements of aircraft landing systems. They are also present in satellite dishes and probes that allow navigation and are critical for ground service teams that need to refuel aircraft. You can find springs basically anywhere in the industry, and their absence means that airplanes as we know them don't exist. Part of the reason springs are so important in aerospace is that they are very resistant to compression. Aircraft require robust and durable components that do not require frequent maintenance, upgrades or replacements, but are at the same time extremely precise. Many applications in aerospace require the ability to withstand harsh environments on a regular basis, from aircraft that fly around the world every...

[Qianye precision]Constant force spring design in 8 steps

Time:2022-9-15

 The constant force spring is made of stainless steel strip. The high-strength steel strip is shaped by specific spring production equipment. When it is straightened by external force, the spring will naturally roll back and produce elastic force. However, when our goal is achieved, it can return to the starting point specified by us after displacement. Constant force spring has the characteristic of maintaining constant force in long stroke, and can be applied to products requiring linear movement such as round-trip, sliding, stretching, homing, balancing or labor-saving. For example, we go to the common fan lifting, store display shelves, tape measure, lifting doors and windows and computer monitor lifting. So if you choose a constant force spring suitable for your product, the design has the following 8 steps. 1. Material selection - most flat steel springs produced by Qianye precision are made of type 301 stainless steel. This material is the most readily available and predictable. Thousands of industry engineers can assist in selecting standard sizes to speed up the process. 2. Estimated life cycle - the life of constant force spring is very predictable, making it one of the most important considerations. Being realistic is important because it is estimated that a longer life cycle will lead to larger and more expensive designs. Underestimating the life cycle of constant force springs may lead to premature failure. Common life cycles range from 4000 to about 25000 life cycles. If a longer life cycle is required, the tolerance of increasing spring diameter and force due to low stress levels and small differences in materials...
