New catalog features over 21,000 Stock Springs. The two new Metric lines feature over 350 Metric
REDUX™ Wave Spring designs in 17-7 Stainless Steel and over 750 Metric Torsion Springs, in a
choice of either zinc plated music wire or passivated 302/304 stainless steel.
Lee has expanded their
existing Metric Compression and Extension offering with designs that meet the physical parameters
of the European Compression Standard (DIN 2098) and the European Extension Standard (DIN
2097). These additions are available in choice of either zinc plated music wire or passivated 302/304
stainless steel, with the exception of compression wire sizes from .10 mm to .40 mm, which are only
available in stainless.
Size is of concern to customers in more than just measurement. As assemblies continue to get
smaller, so does the requirement for products that work within reduced spatial parameters.
Spring has added over 100 new REDUX Wave Spring Inch Stock designs and has more than doubled its Belleville Washer offering. Generally, Wave Springs occupy 30-50% of the compressed
height space of comparable round wire springs, offering equal deflection with the same load
specifications. Belleville washers are designed to support high loads with relatively small deflections
and solid heights.
