Springs flex to solve engineering problems

A new series of Flexi-Hinge devices from Sterling Instrument offer optimum solutions to many of today’s engineering problems including their use in: optical mounts, belt tensioners, linear positioners and sensitive measuring instruments. The design uses crossed springs made to exacting tolerances of 400 series stainless steel, capsuled in a cylindrical housing, to provide angular travel up to ±30 degrees. They are frictionless, require no lubrication, can function at limited angular travels indefinitely, are self-centring when unloaded and have extremely low hysteresis. Lubrication migration and brinelling are eliminated. They are stocked in both single and double end designs. These zero backlash units, identified as the S99FXS and the S99FXD Series can operate without maintenance within a wide temperature range, extreme vibration, dust, abrasive slurry, and even in a vacuum. They feature an OD ranging from 0.125 to 1in and lengths of from 0.2 to 1.6in. Detailed specifications are contained in SI catalogue 790 available free on request from Sterling Instrument.
