6936 results about "Torsion spring" patented technology

A torsion spring is a spring that works by twisting its end along its axis; that is, a flexible elastic object that stores mechanical energy when it is twisted. When it is twisted, it exerts a force (actually torque) in the opposite direction, proportional to the amount (angle) it is twisted.

Folding rotor-type unmanned aerial vehicle

The invention discloses a folding rotor-type unmanned aerial vehicle. The folding rotor-type unmanned aerial vehicle can be folded compactly and unfolded quickly, so that the application flexibility of the rotor-type unmanned aerial vehicle is enhanced effectively. The unmanned aerial vehicle comprises a main body, four rotor arms and a landing gear, wherein each rotor arm is folded and unfolded reliably through a hinge mechanism and a limiting and locking mechanism. When the unmanned aerial vehicle is in a folded state, the rotor arms are positioned in axial grooves in the main body, a torsion spring in the hinge mechanism is compacted, and a limiting and locking piece is positioned at a locked position under the action of a reset spring. When the rotor arms of the unmanned aerial vehicle are required to be unfolded, the limiting and locking piece is driven to slide through a stirring piece along the circumferential direction of the main body, so that the rotor arms are unlocked; the rotor arms are driven to fall quickly by the torsion spring under the effect of torsional force and are limited in a horizontal state. After the rotor arms are unfolded completely, the stirring piece is released, and the limiting and locking piece is returned to the locked position under the effect of the reset spring, so that the rotor arms in an unfolded state are limited and locked.

Lancing device

A lancing device is adapted for use in firing a lancet into the skin of a patient to acquire a blood sample and, subsequent thereto, calculating and displaying the concentration of glucose in the acquired sample. In one embodiment, the device comprises a lancet and a torsion spring coupled to the lancet through a lancet holder. The torsion spring includes inner, middle and outer rings which are concentrically configured, a plurality of activation spring arms which connect the middle and outer rings and a plurality of return spring arms which connect the inner and middle rings. In use, the plurality of activation and return spring arms can be independently transformed between energized and de-energized states using a single, button-shaped mechanism. Rotation of the mechanism is used to energize the activation and return spring arms. With the return spring arms maintained in their energized state, depression of the mechanism transforms the activation spring arms from their energized state to their de-energized state which drives the lancet from a retracted position to an extended position. Once the activation spring arms reach their de-energized state, the return spring arms transform from their energized state to their de-energized state which pulls the lancet back from its extended position to its retracted position.

Elastically-driven modular joint with force feedback control

The invention discloses an elastically-driven modular joint with force feedback control. comprising assembly components such as a motor stator, a motor rotor, a harmonic speed reducer and the like, so that the design flexibility and compactedness of the joint can be increased; and due to the design of an air routing shaft, the joint is convenient to route, so that the joint is more succinct, the moving range of the joint can be preferably enlarged, and the running reliability of the joint can be improved. Due to the introduction of a first absolute type angle sensor and a second absolute type angle sensor, the angle deviation between an output shaft and an output end cover can be obtained, and the angle deviation is multiplied by the elasticity coefficient of an elastic torsion spring, so that a moment value applicable to the joint can be obtained, for an input feedback value of a joint signal; and a reliable moment feedback signal can be provided for the joint, so that the elastic torsion spring can be deformed, the smoothness can be provided for the joint, and an energy storing mechanism can be further provided for the joint, and the elastically-driven modular joint is applicable to a robot, so that the interaction capability between the robot and the environment can be enhanced, and the running efficiency of the robot can be improved.

Decoupler assembly having limited overrunning capability

In one aspect, a decoupler assembly is provided for use between a shaft and an endless drive member that is used to drive the shaft. The decoupler assembly includes a pulley, a hub and an isolator spring that is preferably a coiled torsion spring. The two ends of the spring are engageable, at least indirectly, with the pulley and the hub for the transfer of torque therebetween. At least one of the ends of the spring engages an engagement structure (on either the pulley or the hub) that includes a helical axial shoulder and a driver wall. The spring transfers torque in one direction through the driver wall (e.g. when the pulley overruns the hub), but the spring end is not fixedly connected to the driver wall. When the hub overruns the pulley, there is relative rotation between the spring and whichever of the hub and pulley it is not fixedly connected to. Accordingly, there is relative rotation between the spring end and the helical axial shoulder and the driver wall. This causes the spring end to separate from the driver wall and ride up the helical axial shoulder. This causes the spring to compress axially. The spring coils have a selected amount of spacing so that the spring can be compressed by a selected amount axially. This sets the amount of relative rotation (and the amount of overrun) that is available between the pulley and the hub in the situation when the hub overruns the pulley.

Drawer sliding track

The invention relates to a drawer sliding track which comprises a fixing sliding track and a movable sliding track. A sliding seat is arranged on the fixing sliding track and is internally provided with an inner chute, a sliding arm and a swinging block; one end of the sliding arm is connected with the swinging block, and the other end of the sliding arm is inserted into the inner chute to slide; the swinging block is provided with an open groove which corresponds to a touch bar arranged on the movable sliding track; the swinging block is connected with one end of an extension spring, and the other end of the extension spring is connected with the sliding seat; the swinging block is provided with a cavity for accommodating a swinging arm; the open groove is formed between one side at one end of the swinging arm and the swinging block; the other side at one end of the swinging arm is elastically connected with the inner wall of the cavity; the other end of the swinging arm is pivoted on the swinging block; the swinging arm is a first swinging arm; the swinging block is provided with a pin shaft; the other end of the first swinging arm is pivoted on the swinging block by the pin shaft; and the cavity is internally provided with an elastic piece, a pressure spring or a torsion spring. The drawer sliding track has the characteristics of simple and reasonable structure, flexible operation, high safety, small sound during opening and closure, long service life and wide application range.
