How to determine the length of a constant force spring
How to determine the length of a constant force spring
  Constant force springs are mechanical devices used in applications that typically require some kind of balance or retraction mechanism. In design and function, constant force springs differ from the more common types of coil springs. They apply a consistent linear force or torque that remains constant over a wide range of motion. When a coil spring is under force, whether it is stretched, compressed, or rotated, it produces a force proportional to its stretch. How a spring responds when a force is applied or released is called spring deflection. Years of experience tell us what happens when a spring is released from its temporary state. We know that the spring will return to its original position, but it will be proportional to the force exerted on it before releasing. A spring has a restoring force that allows the elastic material to return to its original state - the equilibrium position after the applied force is removed. Stretching, squeezing or twisting, what...

Design of constant force springs
Design of constant force springs
 A constant force spring is a spring that exerts a constant force over its range of motion. That is, it does not obey Hooke's law. Typically, a constant force spring is constructed as a coiled band of spring steel so that the spring relaxes when fully coiled. When it is unrolled, the restoring force comes mainly from the portion of the belt that is close to the roll. Since the geometry of this region remains nearly constant as the spring unfolds, the resultant force is nearly constant.       By creating a spring with a variable pitch, you can make a push-shape spring with a constant velocity. Placing a larger pitch in a larger outer diameter coil and a smaller pitch in a smaller outer diameter coil will force the single spring to fold all coils at the same rate when compressed.       Design of Constant Force Springs: A constant force spring is a coil of prestressed...

 The power spring makes the tape measure shrink freely
The power spring makes the tape measure shrink freely

Time:2022-9-14

Tape measure, I believe everyone is familiar with it. Tape measure is a common measuring tool in our daily life and work. After the tape measure is pulled out, it can be rolled up because there is a power spring in the tape measure. When pulling out to measure the length, it actually lengthens the length of the scale and spring. Once the measurement is completed, the spring in the tape measure will automatically shrink, and the tape will also shrink under the action of spring force, so the tape measure will roll up. The power spring is an elastic fitting in the tape measure. The end of the steel bar scale is connected to the front end of the spring, and the end of the spring is fixed in the middle of the tape measure. The tape measure mainly uses the energy storage characteristics of the spring, which can be said to be the conservation of mechanical energy .When you pull the tape measure, you work on the internal spring, and the energy is stored by the power spring; when you release it, the spring relaxes, releasing energy and causing the tape measure to retract automatic contraction uses the lever torque principle: in the stretching state, the force arm is the smallest and the spring output is the largest; in the retracted state, the force arm is the largest and the spring output is the smallest.         When the scale is pulled out, the spring is tightened to produce a force to roll back. When the tension of the scale is released,...

Design and manufacturing method of constant force spring

Time:2022-9-14

 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.     If you choose a constant force spring for an application, you must first consider several factors. 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...

 Application of constant force spring in refrigerator door
Application of constant force spring in refrigerator door

Time:2022-9-14

In order to make the refrigerator operate effectively, the door should be kept closed. Keep the door open for a short time when putting or taking out food. However, opening it for a long time will affect its cooling and endanger food safety. It will also lead to excess power consumption. Fortunately, the modern refrigerator door can be added with a constant force spring to automatically close after you open the refrigerator for use. Nowadays, this kind of design is relatively rare in the market. It is generally a magnetic refrigerator door, which explains why the magnet is attached to it.   We have seen that it is essential to keep the refrigerator door closed all the time. If the door remains open for a long time, it will counteract the internal temperature balance and affect the quality of the food stored in it.When this situation continues for a long time, the compressor cannot maintain a low internal temperature. This undermines its operational efficiency. In addition, the longer the door is opened, the hotter the inside of the refrigerator will become.   Because it is very important to keep the door closed, a constant force spring is added to the refrigerator door. If you open them, they will close automatically.A constant force spring is added, which pulls the door back and seals it tightly to the frame when the door is opened. Constant force springs are often the best spring type for this application and can be manipulated in a number of ways to ensure your design works. Constant force springs are characterized by a...

The constant force spring of the industrial door mainly plays a balancing role and reduces the burden on the motor. The force of the spring is equivalent to the force of the industrial door, which is the most ideal configuration state. If the spring force is too large or too small, it will affect the operation of the industrial door. In severe cases, safety accidents may occur and endanger others.        Constant force springs are often used to provide balance to products, so what is balance?        Constant force springs are most useful in applications that require consistent recoil. Ordinary springs behave according to a mathematical equation called Hooke's law. Hooke's law states that the force of a recoil spring in the direction of recoil is equal to the distance the spring is displaced from equilibrium. Simply put, we look at how far the spring is stretched - multiplied by a mathematical constant, the rate of the spring. The recoil direction of the spring is opposite to the stretch direction. ,km        Hooke's Law does not affect constant force springs because their recoil remains constant throughout their range of motion. Their unique design consists of a thin, coiled steel strip that rests when fully coiled. Constant force springs are loaded when they are partially or fully deployed. When released, the spring springs back, pulling the extended ribbon back and rolling up properly. Since the recoil force is mainly obtained closest to the take-up roll, a constant force is maintained. A constant force spring can...
