Wave Springs and Wavy Washers
When compared with typical coil springs, wave springs have equal performance with about half of the overall free height. The space savings leads to smaller, less expensive assemblies. Wave springs are a precision spring and avaialable in many styles and materials. Standard wave springs are available to fit bores ranging from .375" to 16", and to fit shafts ranging from .25" to 15". Call us today for product details.
Retaining Ring Engineering: Calculating Installation Stress
Retaining rings are installed by compressing into a bore (for internal rings) or expanding over a shaft(for external rings). This compression or expansion is normal and should not affect ring performance; however, too much compression or expansion may cause a ring to take a permanant set.
