Spacers

Reduce cost by eliminating secondary operations

Benefits applications where weight savings are needed

Spacers are used in special processes to assure a correct and fixed distance between two connected modules. Moreover the spacer absorbs the tightening force of the screw.

These products are designed to meet customer specifications and are rolled with several different seam configurations. We also offer automatic swedging for additional central thickness requirements.

Slot styles include outer, open, inner, closed, parallel, and seam closed to prevent rubber seepage. Vogelsang Spacers come in a variety of end styles and shapes.

Vogelsang punch press technology allows for the addition of features without dramatically affecting the piece price, with a much more uniform pin than rolling.

Applications

Spacers are excellent in material handling environments, railroad, mining, and construction. They can also be used as a roller for material handling. For rubber applications (inner sleeve and outer sleeve) they can be molded around the rings.

Less wasted material means you save money on screw machine parts or turned parts.
