This is a multi-functional part made of various materials with slits and the portion between the slits works as a spring. It is a simple structure made of various materials with slits and its excellent functionality is demonstrated in a flexible coupling（ MST and MSX ). This enables arbitrary spring properties against compression, tension, shearing, and bending and it has extremely high rigidity against torsion. A due to the cutting process, an exact spring constant can be obtained for use in instruments where precision and reliability are required, this enables you to get a spring property extremely close to the linearity.
Its heat radiation effect allows thermal expansion and shrink. The shape and dimensions are flexible. Polygonal shape, as well as cylinders, can be manufactured. The shape of the hub (end portion for mounting) can also be manufactured according to individual needs. Materials such as beryllium copper, spring steel, and engineering plastic in addition to aluminum alloy and stainless steel are freely selectable.
Flexus is a completely custom-made multi-functional part. When considering, please specify the following condition.
