Typical products, which have been already successfully realised with liquid springs are compressing springs, tensions springs, the combination of both, meaning compression and tension springs, plungers, shock absorber, chain tensioner/adjuster, safety valves, clamping claws, hydraulic vices and elastomeric tensioning jacks and track tensioners.
There are broad application fields with forces from 500kg up to 1000 t, in large applications for construction vehicles for example.
How the technology works:
This technology is based on a highly compressible liquid, a silicone. Under hydrostatic pressure this liquid finds main application in springs and shock absorbers.
The compressible liquid in the inner cylinder is brought to a precalculated pressure. This pressure acts on the surface of a piston and so determines the beginning force of the spring. By applying outside force on the piston, it will fully immerse in the sealed system of the inner cylinder. The induced pressure then determines the block force of the spring. After releasing the force applied from outside on the piston, the piston will recoil to its initial position. The silicone resists aging and also keeps its characteristics in a variable ambient temperature environment.
This profile offers a large pool of knowledge regarding fluid springs. The CEO of the successful company which has constructed, produced and commercialised these springs, died suddenly after a short but hard course of disease. Two business partners, knowing about the advantages and successful applications of the technology, have invested time, in order to sight, document and structure the written inheritances. The technology package now is summarized digitally including all technical drawings.
Besides the technical know-how, a huge part of the package comprises clients contacts. More than 200 have been contacted and have signalised their high interest in continuing businesses together. Price lists, designs, emails and communications, calculations and production costs, offers, drawings, websites, etc. are included in the technology package, too.
