  • Spring Steel
    Spring steel is any of a variety of steels that are normally of the high-carbon or alloy type. They are used in the manufacture of springs because of their high tensile properties. The type of spring steel used depends on the application and type of spring. They range from plain carbon grades
  • Tool Steel
    with the least severe quench. Tool steels are classified into several broad groups, some of which are further divided into subgroups according to alloy composition, hardenability, or mechanical similarities. or carbon, tool steels, designated Type W by AISI, rely solely on carbon content for their useful
  • Frequently Asked Questions/Technical Information
    A: Different materials are better suited for different applications and environments. The Material Properties Table provides operating temperature ranges and other useful information. A: When heat-treated to spring temper, Stainless Steel becomes magnetic. Stainless Steel springs are slightly less
  • Wire-formed Rings
    applications. Round-section rings are for external use on shafts only and are used where the expected load is light. Ring assembly and disassembly tools range from a screwdriver to automatic tools, depending on the application. Carbon spring steel (SAE-1060) is the standard material used in retaining rings
  • Spiral-Wound Rings
    ends. The standard material for spiral-wound retaining rings is carbon spring steel. Some rings are available in other materials such as 302, 316, and 17-7 PH/C stainless steel, NS A286 alloy, beryllium copper, and Inconel X-750. Time and stress greatly influence the allowable operating temperature
  • Stamped Rings
    with a screwdriver or other hand tool. Self-locking rings do not require grooves. They are available for assemblies in which the fastener need not absorb any sizable thrust, but instead serves mainly as a positioning or locking device. Most stamped retaining rings are made of high-carbon spring steel
  • Quick-Action Couplers
    is permissible. They are suitable for vacuums down to 10 >= torr. On pump supply lines, a size should be selected that will not produce about 1.5-psi pressure drop at required flow. A wide variety of seals and materials are available for these couplers: carbon steel, stainless steel, brass, aluminum
  • Racing to tech transfer
    under the hood of a C6-R race car reveals a carbon-fiber intake box fed by two ducts. Each duct flange contains a 31.5-mmdiameter restrictor plate. The plates limit airflow to the 7.0-liter engine and cap power output at about 590 hp. Race rules key restrictor size to car weight; heavier cars get
