The Metric Crest-to-Crest wave springs can allegedly reduce the size of OEMs’ assemblies by up to 50% while maintaining the same amount of force and deflection as a regular coiled spring. According to the company, the springs minimize assembly cost and total assembly size due to the reduced spring cavity required. More than 3000 standard wave springs in 17-7 stainless steel or carbon steel are offered. The new series is available in dimensions from 6 to 60 mm.
