Mechanical spring drives with energy recovery are designed to produce return-rotational movements in various technological equipment and reduce energy costs by several times compared with traditional electromechanical, hydraulic and pneumatic drives. The use of pneumatic motors in spring drives to compensate for dissipative losses, fixing the drive in extreme positions and the primary charging of spring batteries is considered. The class of tasks in which spring drives with energy recovery are created using only pneumatic cylinders with return springs is highlighted. This study examines mechanical spring drives with energy recovery, based on nonlinear spring batteries with spring preload in the middle position of the output link. The use of pneumatic actuators with return springs in mechanical drives based on linear spring batteries with two springs is proposed. Mechanical spring drives with energy recovery are designed to produce return-rotational movements in various technological equipment and reduce energy costs by several times compared with traditional electromechanical, hydraulic and pneumatic drives. The amount of energy expended in spring recuperative drives is actually determined by the energy expended on compensating for dissipative losses in kinematic pairs. The results of the study allow the designers of such drives to consciously approach the choice of their schemes and design parameters.
