Wave springs

Single-turn and multi-turn wave springs feature coiled flat wire with waves added to give a spring effect and provide lower work heights with the same force as coil springs.

Features & benefits

  • Act as load bearing devices; compensate for accumulated tolerances in assemblies and provide endplay take-up

  • Exert force or preload on assemblies to the low side of tolerances, to “snug” components; also give when parts are made to high side of tolerances

  • Ideal for short deflection applications with low to medium forces

  • Offered in many waves and material thicknesses; designed for a wide range of bore and rod diameters

  • Suit narrow radial wall dimensions, light duty, and low clearance applications and ball or roller bearing applications
