Engineer’s Tips for Application of Variable Force Springs and Variable Torque Spring

Engineer’s Tips for Application of Variable Force Springs and Variable Torque Spring

Variable force spring and variable torque spring are very similar with constant force spring and constant torque spring. But we diversify the radian by winding the steel strip into a coil. Therefore, it can unfold negative gradient, positive gradient compounded in a spring. Here are some relations between load (force or torque) and stroke that can be used on specific occasion.

Pen Type Drug Injector Application

The spring exerts constant force to keep the drug flow fixed, preventing the patient from feeling uncomfortable when applying it. It features stretch force in end...

Polarisation Reveals Details That Were “Invisible”

Polarisation Reveals Details That Were “Invisible”

A polarisation sensor makes details visible that remain hidden to other image sensors. IDS now offers the IMX250MZR 5 MP sensor from SONY with integrated on-pixel polarisers in the uEye CP camera family. The models ensure better object detection in cases of low contrast or light reflections. They also provide a convenient way of detecting fine scratches on surfaces or the stress distribution within transparent objects.

Both USB3 Vision and GigE Vision are available as interfaces. Using polarisation filters, the sensor generates an image with four polarisation directions...
