Rotor Clip's TruWave wave springs and retaining rings were designed to conserve material and reduce design space in fluid power assemblies by combining the benefits of both. MST-series TruWave single-turn metric wave springs are available in sizes from 16 to 170 mm (0.63 to 6.7 in), can handle bearing preloads, and are suitable for short deflection applications. Traditional retaining rings repair the cover element and eliminate the need to weld or screw down the components, making the assembly easier to repair and service. The wave spring between the cover element and the inner tube preloads the components against each other; tolerances are balanced to prevent axial play. Additional features include potential overhead assembly and automatic installation, even load and force with small tolerances, and prevention of radial jamming.
