Machined Spring Features Heli-Cal Flexure
Wed, 05/26/2010 - 6:11am
The Heli-Cal Flexure is a flexible helix (curved beam) machined into a unique configuration that incorporates special design requirements, and performance features and/or characteristics. The material is basically unlimited. When used as a spring, the multi-functional flexure provides desired and predictable elastic performance in compression, extension, torsion, lateral bending, and lateral translation modes. One huge advantage of this technology—it enables customer specified end-attachments, such as tangs, clamps, flanges, or threaded ends to be integrated into a single multi-functional component.
