Lee Spring Ltd says its REDUX™ wave springs offer high functionality in space critical applications, and are designed to replace conventional round wire compression springs. They also provide tight load deflection in a very small area, which enhances efficiency, reduces operational cost, and permits smaller assemblies.
Lee Spring REDUX™ wave springs offer a way of performing a spring function where often no other spring could work effectively. They occupy between 30% - 50% of the compressed height space of the conventional round wire springs, but offer more deflection with the same load specifications. This not only helps to save space in the applications, but also reduces the production costs as fewer materials are required and often enable devices that would not otherwise be feasible.
Wave springs come in a wave top to wave top format manufactured from a single filament of type 17-7 stainless steel flat wire formed in continuous precise coils with uniform diameters and waves. REDUX wave springs are offered in diameters from 6mm to 45mm to meet load requirements from 2lbs to 90lbs.
Wave spring applications typically include connectors, pumps, clutches, seals, medical equipment and valves where uniform force distribution and/or uniform rotational pressure is required over 360° in restricted spaces.
Ex-stock specifications are suitable for static and slightly dynamic load applications where they provide a degree of anti-vibration operation, or maintain constant pressure in a mechanism with limited height constraints. More dynamic applications require special
