Free White Paper: How a Friction Spring Works

friction spring at rest

An axial load is imposed on the spring column. Tapered faces are caused to slide against one another. Individual rings are deformed elastically . 

The friction spring damped the load's force and thus did its job.


The white paper gives answer to these questions:

  • How is a friction spring composed?
  • How does it work?
  • What are its technical properties?
  • And what advantages does it have in comparison to other damping technologies? 

Moreover: Example diagrams for a given application.
