Constant Force Spring range from Lee Spring
Specifically, motor springs are used for cable retraction, power generation etc., while power springs are used for retracting applications such as seat belt webbing, tape measures and dog leads, seat recliner, window regulator mechanisms etc.
Lee Spring offer constant force springs in four Life Cycle ranges where each spring is a roll of high yield Type 301 Stainless Steel strip exerting a nearly constant restraining force to resist uncoiling. When the strip is extended, the inherent stress resists the loading force at a nearly constant rate.
Typically stainless steel Type 301 is selected, but high-carbon steel, Inconel and other materials are also suitable for constant force springs. Fatigue life of these springs ranges from 2,500 cycles to over a million cycles depending upon the load and size of the spring. Working deflections of 50 times the drum diameter can be achieved and these springs are often considered much easier to handle than a conventional wire spring.
Considerable flexibility is possible with constant force springs because the load capacity can be varied by using different mounting configurations such as cavity mounts, multiple spring mounts, etc. Constant force springs are available in a wide variety of sizes and end configurations to suit the design situation.
Many variations of constant force spring are possible over and above the simple increase in size, thickness, diameter etc. For example, doubling up by back-to-back mounting which not only doubles the available force but also increases stability; tandem mounting which doubles force and laminar mounting which doubles the force in a limited space.

Exotic alloys - Lee Spring explain what they are and when to use them
Materials with high alloy content, known as super alloys or exotic alloys, offer enhanced performance properties including excellent strength and durability, and resistance to oxidation, corrosion and deforming at high temperatures or under extreme pressure. Because of these properties, super alloys make the best spring materials for demanding working conditions, which can be encountered across various industry sectors, including the Automotive, Marine and Aerospace sectors as well as oil and
REDUX™ Wave Springs from Lee Spring – an enabling technology
Lee Spring REDUX™ wave springs offer a way of performing a spring function in minimal spaces – even perhaps where no other spring could work effectively. Typically, REDUX wave springs occupy just 30-50% of the compressed height space of the conventional round wire springs, yet they offer more deflection with the same load specifications. This not only helps to save space in the applications but also reduces the production costs,

Lee Spring – constant force, constant torque, constant load springs
The Lee Spring extension type of constant force spring represents the most basic, yet most versatile, type of constant force spring. It is a pre-stressed flat strip of spring material which is formed into a virtually constant radius coils around itself or on a drum. When the strip is extended (deflected) the inherent stress resists the loading force, the same as a common extension spring, but at a nearly constant
Lee Spring – constant force – constant load
Constant force springs from Lee Spring ex-stock or custom, are a complete spring package offering constant force over the useable range. They are therefore ideal for applications where a constant load is required. Some of the many applications of constant force springs are in counterbalances, door closers, cable retractors, hose retrievers, tool head returns, cabinet & furniture components, gym equipment, hair dryers, toys, electric motors, appliances, space vehicles, and other

The MWM model series – innovation and constant development
Mannheim, March 1, 2012 | After two years of constant development, the new version of the TCG 2032 (the largest MWM genset) was launched in January 2012. Optimized spark plugs and turbocharger technology have resulted in electrical efficiency of up to 44.2% with an output of 3,333 to 4,3000 kWe (in the V12 and V16 cylinder versions). Thanks to excellent operational experience, the period of operation up to the major
