Most Popular Springs Used for Medical Device and Healthcare
Constant Force Springs
Constant Force Springs, or Conforce® Springs, which provide high force output from a small package size, are commonly used in auto injectors to deliver high-viscous drugs, as well as to drive hardware in surgical staplers and counterbalance MRI and X-Ray machines. They are also used in medical carts, bedside tables and surgical robots.
Constant Torque Springs
Constant Torque Springs, or Contorque® Springs, which provide high torque with a small space requirement, are used for movement in surgical robots as well as cable and cord management.
Power Springs feature smooth winding and retracting ability making them ideal for applications such as auto injectors and lab samples, cable and cord management and pumps used in both healthcare and home settings.
Mechanical Reels provide reliable power for applications needing counterbalancing, retrieving or returning, and are therefore commonly used to affix instruments to medical carts as well as to balance overhead objects.
Twin Springs minimize space, maximize life and can meet exacting force requirements to ensure consistent, dependable force to a device. They are most commonly used to saddle and drive hardware in surgical staplers.
