Short summary
This paper proposes a spring efficiency assessment and the efficient use of springs methods for a static spring-balanced manipulator. Gravity is balanced by springs; however, it also contains counter-effects between springs. Conceptually, with fewer counter-effects between springs, there is less burden on the spring system, which means that the springs are used more efficiently. Through adjustment of the springs' attachment and parameters, a method to use springs efficiently is developed.
