Product Spotlight: Wave Springs
Posted 20 Jun 2013 by Ivan C
Wave Springs help to save up to 50% of axial space in your application when compared to conventional coil springs. The result is more compact applications in which unnecessary pace and therefore excess material of neighbouring components can be reduced to a minimum. The flat wire effectively reduces the solid height of the wave spring so that with the same amount of turns one can visibly reduce the work height without compromising the load or spring deflection. Another advantage is that one can increase the number of turns of the spring design in order to decrease the deflection per turn when the wave spring is compressed. Thus, the spring rate is reduced proportionally to the number of turns and a flat linear characteristic can be generated
SD Products Ltd offers a wide range of standard metric and inch size flat wire wave springs with one or multiple turns.
WSN-G Wave Springs – Single Turn, Narrow, Imperial.
WSS-O, WSS-G Wave Springs – Single Turn, Metric.
Single turn wave springs are ideal for short deflection applications where space is minimal.
Multi turn wave springs are used for low force applications with large deflections: more turns equals less force. Utilises nearly half the space as helical compression springs while producing the same force.
