Press Release Summary:
Available for plastic assemblies, Series CL400 Press-In and CL460 boh accommodate up to 2.25 mm extra clearance on one axis to provide flexibility for centerline and stack-up tolerancing. Series CL400 Oval Press-In, produced from carbon steel, consists of roll-formed, split-seam, oval compression limiter with spring tension, which provides positive retention in hole.Â While similar to oval Series CL400, Series CL460 Oval Molded-In is produced withÂ butted-seam.

SPIROL Introduces Oval Compression Limiters
SPIROL is proud to announce the introduction of a standard line of Oval Compression Limiters to their suite of other Compression Limiters for plastic assemblies. The CL400 Press-In and CL460 Molded-In Oval Compression Limiters both accommodate up to 2.25mm extra clearance on one axis, providing additional flexibility over round Compression Limiters for centerline and stack-up tolerancing.
Series CL400 Oval Press-In: Produced from high carbon steel, this split-seam oval Compression Limiter is roll-formed, and spring tension provides positive retention in the hole. The roll-forming manufacturing method yields substantial cost savings over machined products with similar features and characteristics.
Series CL460 Oval Molded-In: The CL460 Series is similar to the oval Series CL400, but produced with a butted-seam so as to prevent plastic from entering the inner diameter during the molding process. Both are rated for use up to ISO Class 8.8 bolts.
SPIROL offers a variety of standard Compression Limiter series to accommodate different compressive loads, positional tolerances and installation methods. Standard roll formed Compression Limiters include: Series CL200 and CL350 Split Seam designs, CL400 Oval Split Seam, CL460 Oval Molded-In and the Series CL500 Molded-In. Standard machined options include: CL600 aluminum and CL601 headed aluminum Compression Limiters, and the CL800 brass and CL801 headed brass Compression Limiters.
