Nested wave springs are pre-stacked in parallel from one
continuous fillament of flat wire. The need to stack
individual springs for higher loads is no longer
Nested springs result in a spring rate that
increases proportionally by the number of turns. They
can exert tremendous forces, yet maintain the precision
of a circular-grain wave spring.
In many applications, nested wave springs replace
Belleville springs, particularly in cases where a high
but accurate force is needed.
Nested wave springs are available as a special from
Smalley and can be manufactured in diameters ranging
from .200" to 90".
