Where can the Constant Force Spring be used?
- Constant force springs are a special type of extension spring
- They consist of a spiral, which is constructed in such a way that each turn touches the next turn slightly
- When the spring is deflected, frictional resistance and deflection force act in opposite directions so that an almost constant force is produced
- The constant force spring is designed for long spring travel with constant force
- In practice, the spring is fixed firmly to a drum, with the free end absorbing the load
- This principle can be reversed
- The spring can be used flexibly, since the force values can be increased or decreased by tandem arrangement or counter-rotating arrangement
