  • How to Adjust the Force of a Gas Spring
    Once a gas spring has left the IGS factory, the only way to adjust its force is by removing some of the nitrogen gas contained inside the tube. Therefore the only possible adjustment will always lead to a less powerful gas spring. On first orders and prototypes, we always recommend that you
  • How to Adjust the Force on a Gas Spring with a Schrader Valve (RV)
    The procedure to adjust the force on a gas spring with a shrader release valve (RV) is similar to a T-Valve (TV). However, because the valve is more fragile you can only release gas using the tool provided or the stud at the end of the gas spring. This valve is being discontinued in favour
  • How to Adjust the Force on a Gas Spring with an IGS Side Release Valve
    The IGS Side Release Valve can be found on the Euroline range of gas springs. It can also be found on custom made gas springs where a SRV was specified. The advantage of this type of release is that the force can be released after the gas spring has been fitted on the application. It makes
  • Compression Spring Solid Height
    The Solid Height of a compression spring is the height of the spring when all of the coils are brought together (stacked) by compression (load). Solid Height should only be specified when it is important to the function of the spring. It should be specified as a maximum allowing the spring
  • Ogura Electromagnetic Clutch Helps Doctors Increase Efficiency
    In the May issue of the Design News Medical Trend Watch, an article by Ogura showed how eye doctors were using a spring-applied clutch to achieve a finer control of a vision testing table. The article explained how the MCSC spring-applied clutch allowed doctors to adjust the equipment
  • Tolerancing helical springs
    Loosening up specs can boost spring precision. Spring rate remains about linear (Hooke's Law) until gradual coil dampening and loss boost rate. Make free length a reference dimension so spring makers can adjust it as needed to obtain load at a specified height. In my 30 years experience as a spring
  • SLIC Hits the Slopes
    Twenty Two Designs of Driggs, Idaho manufactures world-class Telemark ski bindings. This specific binding design's performance is enhanced by the ability to adjust the tension, or "flex", through user-adjustment. The application had previously used a spring button for adjustment. "Spring buttons
  • Brushless washer maker finds reliability in screwless connections
    . The Wago blocks use spring pressure alone to make electrical connections. Spring-pressure terminals automatically adjust to the size of the wire inserted. This eliminates concerns about loosening because of temperature cycling or vibration. And the constant dynamic pressure on the wire, plus the use
  • CL 500 Mercedes
    body-control system that adjusts handling qualities on the fly. ABC essentially eliminates squat during acceleration, dive during severe braking, and body roll during severe turns, letting the car navigate through corners at speeds few other production vehicles can match. I was one of the lucky automotive
  • Optimizing Cleanliness & Drainability
    . A straight piece of tubing is then butt-welded to the mitered cut, creating a slope. Some bending may be required to adjust the slope. A second method requires only one s bare hands. A straight piece of tubing is butt-welded or otherwise attached to the fitting. Then, the installer grips the straight
