If you’re wondering how to make a spring loaded arm, look no further. Here’s a simple way to mount a spring loaded pivot arm in your project. After you build the mounting system, you can attach the springs to the dowels to keep them in place. In addition to allowing you to easily move the arm, it will also allow you to recock the blade when necessary.

POSITAL spring-loaded pivot arm mounting system

A POSITAL spring-loaded pivot arm is a mounting system designed to minimize slippage and maintain a steady contact pressure between moving surfaces. This mounting system also accommodates greater lateral movements and can be adjusted by the user. In addition, the arm can be reversed on the spring hub so that the load is applied in the opposite direction. The spring-loaded system is compatible with many mounting systems.

This mounting system is made of a split-ring spring that extends and contracts in response to pivotal movement of the arm. It also has a harrow disk which pivots on the outer pivot part below the axes. The split-ring spring is mounted conventionally on the mounting surfaces. POSITAL has subsidiaries throughout the world, including in North America, Asia, and Europe.

A POSITAL spring-loaded pivot arm installation may include an auxiliary support 58. The support 58 is preferably made of aluminum. A POSITAL spring-loaded pivot arm mounting system can also have a roller assembly. The roller assembly 58 and support 58 are joined together by a POSITAL spring-loaded pivot arm mounting system. These parts are connected by a pivot shaft 72.

The POSITAL spring-loaded pivot arm mount system may include a secondary pivot arm 79. The secondary pivot arm 79 is linked to the primary pivot arm 66 by a coil spring 94. The spring 94 biases the second pivot arm toward the upstream direction. The coil spring 94 carries a load that is opposite to the spring-loaded spring 98. The secondary pivot arm 79 has a ramp 92 on its lever portion 90.

In another POSITAL spring-loaded pivot arm mount system, a plurality of pivot arms is mounted on a support 58 below the lower belt run 48. Each pivot arm 56 includes a pressure roller 60 that is mounted on the free end. These pivot arms and rollers are positioned to maintain frictional contact between the mailpiece and the belt run 48. These may be conventionally mounted or constructed.
