Springs are vital mechanical components used in effecting motion, improving shock-absorbing capabilities. This white paper looks at NBK’s Flexus products. Characteristic custom machine slits can control various spring functions. By altering the slit shapes, numbers and inner diameters, products with the same outline dimensions can perform different functions. The white paper discusses such topics as the spring properties—shapes, materials and dimensions—and how slits affect compression, tension, shearing, and bending.
