Flat & Cantilever Springs
A flat spring is commonly manufactured from a flat bar or strip. Types of flat springs include bow springs and cantilever springs. Flat springs are formed with an arc at or near the center and are supported on both ends with the force applied to the center of the arc. Thanks to the near-limitless customizing possibilities available when manufacturing flat springs, they can be made to fit any application you need. Cantilever Springs are made from the same materials but are clamped on one end while the force is applied to the other. These types of springs can be used as centralizers and equalizers.
If you’re looking for a way to push back when force is applied, flat springs may be the optimal solution. Improve your application with flat springs manufactured to your specifications by Custom Spring Manufacturing.
Flat Spring Advantages
Flat springs are a type of flat spring that absorbs and releases energy by bending. They’re typically used in applications where two or more components are involved. In these environments, a cantilever spring is clamped to a component at one end while the other is free. When opposing force is applied, the power needed to send the parts back to their unique positions is produced. Bow springs are found in all sorts of devices, even very simple and crude ones such as latch springs in cars. Bow and cantilever springs provide a lot of functionality with little material.
Also called cantilever or bow springs, they offer a variety of performance advantages. Here are some examples:
- High Rate Of Energy Return
- Easy To Use
- Optimal Energy Efficiency
- Low Maintenance
