2012 LEE SPRING CATALOG
Lee has expanded their existing Metric Compression and Extension offering with designs that meet the physical parameters of the European Compression Standard (DIN 2098) and the European Extension Standard (DIN 2097). These additions are available in choice of either zinc plated music wire or passivated 302/304 stainless steel, with the exception of compression wire sizes from .10 mm to .40 mm, which are only available in stainless. Size is of concern to customers in more than just measurement. As assemblies continue to get smaller, so does the requirement for products that work within reduced spatial parameters.
Lee Spring has added over 100 new REDUX Wave Spring Inch Stock designs and has more than doubled its Belleville Washer offering. Generally, Wave Springs occupy 30-50% of the compressed height space of comparable round wire springs, offering equal deflection with the same load specifications. Belleville washers are designed to support high loads with relatively small deflections and solid heights.
