Different shapes and sizes of compression spring are available to suit the application, such as cone shaped springs which are ideal for batteries.
WILLIAM HUGHES reports it has increased its component endurance testing capabilities with the acquisition of two new compression spring fatigue testing machines from Italian test equipment specialist Micro Studio.
The bad springs make it difficult to fit the helical compression spring over the extractor's straight headless pin.
Lacking a readily available replacement, can you recommend a custom gunsmith that would be able to fabricate a suitable compression spring?
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 uses solderless pressure-mount compression spring probes located by two molded plastic alignment pins and secured with four stainless steel screws, making for easy mounting to and removal from the burn-in board (BIB).
Because the primary design criteria included weight and lateral bending modulus, few parameter variations existed to influence the compression spring rate.
