Springs Used in NASA Perseverance
NASA LAUNCHES MARS 2020 PERSEVERANCE ROVER JULY 30 Our Engineering Dept. & Sales Dept. have worked with NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory since September 2018 on this design. The springs were created in our Constant Force Dept. Perseverance will cruise through space for nearly seven months, aiming to land in Mars’s Jezero crater on February 18, 2021. Physical
Shock and vibration are common challenges for mechanical and electronic equipment. Conditions like loose components, misaligned shafts, device wear and tear, abrupt machine starts and stops, and imbalance created by heavy loads can cause vibration. Let’s not forget about external factors that can cause vibration, like explosive blasts or extreme weather. Even the smallest shock
John Evans' Sons medical constant force springs
There are many mechanical components to choose from for your device or application. If your device requires a spring, consider constant force springs. These are a type of extension spring. They do not obey Hooke’s law, so their force remains constant, even when deflected. Because of their flat force curve, constant force springs are suitable
Since 1850, John Evans’ Sons has manufactured springs for many unique devices and applications. We’ve manufactured suspension components for the Mars Rover Curiosity, counterbalancing mechanisms for M1A1 Abrams Tanks, and more. It’s common for us to manufacture a custom spring assembly for our clients’ proprietary devices, but we also have a selection of stock springs

Buyers and engineers who are familiar with the RFQ process prioritize cost and lead time when selecting a components manufacturer for their medical device project. While these are important considerations, there are other capabilities you should look for in a manufacturer. These considerations can have a direct effect on project cost and timeline. Here are
The medical industry requires products that perform with accuracy and precision. John Evans’ Sons is proud to provide those products to the medical manufacturing community. We’re excited to attend MD&M West, where we will be showcasing constant force springs, spiral torsion springs, and spring reels. Springs are more economical and precise than motors, making them
