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

Smalley Wave Springs (Flat Wire Compression Springs) offer the unique advantage of space savings when used to replace coil springs. By reducing spring operating height, wave springs also produce a decrease in the spring cavity. With a smaller assembly size and less material used in the manufacturing process, a cost-saving is realized.

Wave springs operate as load-bearing devices. They take up play and compensate for dimensional variations within assemblies. Wave springs can produce an unlimited range of forces whereby loads build either gradually or abruptly to reach a predetermined working height. This establishes a precise spring rate in which load is proportional to deflection.

Functional requirements are necessary for both dynamic and static spring applications. Special performance characteristics are individually built into each spring to satisfy a variety of precise operating conditions. Typically, a wave spring will occupy an extremely small area for the amount of work it performs. The use of this product is demanded, but not limited to tight axial and radial space constraints.

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 Wave Springs for your application.
