I went to see him and saw the problem first hand, his idea meant they could separate the joint without having to fully dismantle the drive shaft, by using a compression spring to apply a force between the two surfaces without being too strong to push them apart.
The video follows the evolution of a small compression spring from concept and design through coil winding and high temperature stress relief.
The bad springs make it difficult to fit the helical compression spring over the extractor's straight headless pin.
Without compromising form, fit and function, an economical, recyclable helical compression spring needs to meet the secondary requirements that have challenged traditional steel springs, including:
Vital Gear's Ben Afshari unveiled the Vital Pro arrow rest in 2009, which features a unique arrow capture system and can use a compression spring or extension spring for drop-away activation.
Each actuator incorporates either a magnetic extension or a magnetic compression spring inside a coil assembly.
Solderless, pressure-mount compression spring probes allow the socket to be easily mounted to and removed from the test board.
Features include a non-electric design, an Iconel compression spring with a lifetime spring limited warranty and an externally removable motive intake valve.
The socket incorporates solderless, pressure-mount compression spring probes, located by two molded plastic alignment pins and secured with four stainless steel screws, ensuring fast, easy access for mounting and removal to/from the load board.
Because the primary design criteria included weight and lateral bending modulus, few parameter variations existed to influence the compression spring rate.
