Lee Spring REDUX™ wave springs offer a way of performing a spring function in minimal spaces – even perhaps where no other spring could work effectively. Typically, REDUX wave springs occupy just 30-50% of the compressed height space of the conventional round wire springs, yet they offer more deflection with the same load specifications. This not only helps to save space in the applications but also reduces the production costs, as fewer materials are required and often enable devices that would not otherwise be feasible.

EMKA are aware that the generic problem with many doors and access panels is often that they have a large surface area – easily caught by wind and able to generate a lot of force. This makes maintenance or installation/updates a difficult problem and potentially a painful one. Similar problems exist where a door/panel is opened against gravity or perhaps is in a position where passers-by may knock it closed.

Kevin Moorcroft, M.D. at Challenge Europe, explains some features of different screw drive types.
Anyone regularly using simple slotted drive screws – with a traditional straight bladed screwdriver, will be aware of its shortcomings – with a power driver then even more so. The old-style slotted drive will “cam-out” easily, is almost impossible to centre and if the tool or slot is even slightly worn, then is extremely different to install or remove.
