Composite springs for vibratory conveyors and seating

Raise the bar on fatigue life and design flexibility with unidirectional thermoset composite springs

Composite springs (also referred to as flat springs, flippers, energizers, slats, and exciters) from PolyOne Advanced Composites are engineered with proprietary vinyl ester or epoxy resins and unidirectional glass or carbon fiber reinforcement technologies. These formulations achieve long-lasting, deep, and consistent flexing performance in a variety of cantilevered applications, from vibratory sorting and conveying systems to furniture.

Compared to metal, thermoset composite springs offer superior corrosion resistance, flexural properties, and strength-to-weight ratio.

 

FEATURES & BENEFITS:

  • Exceptional fatigue, corrosion, and creep resistance for fewer failures, longer spring life, and increased reliability
  • Lightweight at less than half the weight of steel springs, with high spring rate and deep deflection for stronger springs and overall cost savings
  • Custom designs and finishing options, with common sizes in inventory
  • Fast, dependable service and ready-to-install products to boost manufacturing efficiencies

 

APPLICATIONS:

  • Chair tilt spring mechanisms – office chairs, outdoor furniture, medical examination equipment
  • Industrial vibratory conveyors, sorting, separators, feeders
  • Leaf springs
  • Diving board springs
  • Archery bow limbs
  • Other applications requiring high cyclic fatigue resistance, repeatability, and high performance
