TFC is the sole UK & leading European supplier of Smalley WaveRings®. Smalley and TFC have built a reputation for unsurpassed quality and an expert, collaborative engineering team.

The WaveRing is a spiral retaining ring with an axial waveform. It acts like a standard retaining ring with the additional feature of compressibility. It compensates for the overall length tolerance of stacked components, while still acting as a retaining ring. Once assembled the WaveRing will reduce looseness and vibration in the assembly.

Designed to fit into a groove, the WaveRing applies pressure in two directions: against the groove wall and against the assembly components. Single, double or multiple turns in the WaveRing are possible as well as a choice of materials, including our standard 17-7 PH stainless and carbon steel.

With over 40 years experience and with a technical support team available in-house & in the field, TFC are pleased to advise the ideal Smalley WaveRings® for your application.
