The spring specialists at Hardware Products can assist you in the design of your unique flat springs. We will focus on your application and enter your parameters into our official Spring Manufacturer's Institute spring design program. Our precision recommendation will be sent to you for final adjustments and approval.
A Flat Spring is a spring made out of flat material, rather than round spring wire. The most commonly known flat spring is a wave washer that found inside the temperature setting mechanism of ovens. With a wave washer, or flat spring, you are required to push in on the oven button before turning it to the desired temperature. When you are through with the oven, the flat spring snaps the button back to its original position. Designs Verified by Spring Mfg. Institute (SMI) Software.
