What is a Ring Spring?
A ring spring is of a number of alternately assembled inner and outer rings. Each ring has a lubricated conical contact surface that is made up of a high-quality spring steel.
The outer rings expand and inner rings contract when axial pressure is applied to the ring spring. Each conical surface telescopes into the adjacent one.
The pairs of conical contact surfaces sum to provide a total spring travel that is directly proportional to the total number of elements. High efficiency results when the outer rings and inner rings are subjected to equally uniform compression stresses. The friction that occurs between the conical surfaces increases the force required to compress the spring and reduces the force given out on release.
