Bearing Retention & Preload Solutions through Engineering Expertise.
Rotor Clip TruWave® single-turn wave springs are suited for applications that include connectors, fluid power seals, noise and vibration attenuation, and bearing preload.
The design of standard single turn wave springs with gap typically used for preloading components features sharp corners at the cut-off area of the spring ends. These sharp corners can scratch the surface of the bearing as well as the mating parts when the waveform shows a steep incline depending on the load specification.
Rotor Clip’s patented single-turn wave spring design solves this problem by flattening the ends of the spring so that they will not create excessive wear that can damage the application. This new design also offers the potential for cost and weight savings in applications where design engineers would typically choose a multi-turn wave spring with shim ends to prevent wear on mating components. However, multi-turn wave springs with shim ends require more material in their production, which adds to both cost and weight.
As with all of our wave spring designs, there is no charge for tooling on custom designs with this end feature.
Feel free to contact our technical sales staff (tech@ rotorclip.com) to find out if your design can benefit from our new single-turn wave spring design. Maybe you have questions about another of our retaining ring, wave spring or hose clamp products. Our technical sales engineers are here to help you find the right solution for your application. www.rotorclip.com
