Made to “push” and can be designed to accommodate wide load and deflection ranges. Can be made with; round, square or even rectangular wire.
Made to “push” high loads, low deflections. Rates can be constant, increasing or decreasing.
Made to “push light loads, low deflection. Uses limited radial space.
Made to “push” with higher deflection (travel) than bellevilles.
Made to “push” for axial loading of bearings.
Made to “push” and used to absorb axial end play.
Made to “push” or “pull” a wide range of loads with minimal deflection.
Simple Beam/Bow Spring/Lead Spring
Made to “twist” at a constant rate.
Made to “twist”.
Made to “twist” or “push.
Power / Motor / Clock
Made to “twist” and exerts torque over many turns. Supplied in retainer. (bottom picture shows a power spring removed from its retainer).
Constant Force Spring Motor
Made to “twist” by exerting close-to-constant torque over many turns.
Made to “pull” wide load and deflection ranges.
Made to “pull” with a built-in stop (compression spring deflected to solid).
Made to “pull” for very long deflection applications at a constant load or rate.
Retaining Ring / Snap Ring
Made to “push” or “pull” (resist) axial loads like those created by power springs.
Made to “pull” with radial pressure.
Made to “push” with radial pressure.
