Spring plungers are spring elements comprised of a ball and a pin. Spring plungers are also often referred to as ball catches. They are suitable for an extensive array of applications across a wide range of different industries, e.g. for fixing, locking in place, positioning and as a detent or for ejection.
The assembly procedure and the specific manufacturing process we use allow us to guarantee a superior level of functional reliability - for example, through certified spring loads and spring travel.
