schnorr bar springs
- More compact than other solutions
- More rugged
- Longer lasting
- Error free assembly
Schnorr advanced bar springs are made for your individual application. Hole centres and loads to suits.
They accommodate single or dual point force centres.
They are made to the highest quality standards for complete reliability and long life.
They take up less room than any other spring solutions.
The zinc laminar finish gives good level of corrosion resistance and passes salt spray test to DIN 50021/ASTM B117-73) and gives a pleasing appearance.
As there is only a single component assembly is easier and faster, and error free.
Manufactured from 51CrV4 chrome vanadium steel alloy which give unrivalled uniformity of deflection across all force ranges and have been manufactured up to 70,000 kN. The bar springs offer advantages over alternative solutions in terms of dimensions, durability and ease of assembly.
The bar springs have been developed predominantly for clients working in semi-conductor and high-voltage environments who need to maintain a high clamping force across a wide range of temperatures. They will be of particular value to engineers working with high-power rectifiers and transformers as well as anybody operating in a cramped environment since there are space savings over conventional arrangements with disc springs or box clamps.
A semi conductor will use a bar spring as it offers a simple solution to providing clamping force since they can lie through the centre of cooling fins and, unlike disc springs, does not require additional machining of a pocket for the springs to sit in. The springs accommodate single or dual-point force centres and have a zinc laminar finish which improves corrosion resistance. Use of 51CrV4-grade alloy ensures reliable performance in applications where typical currents of 4,000 amps can raise temperatures rapidly.
We are Schnorrs sole UK agent for the springs. We developed the product jointly with Schnorr as our customers were dissatisfied with consistency of performance from alternative solutions. The deflection performance of these springs means that their application potential is very wide. Factory procedures meet TS16949 so quality is assured.
