The smallest wave springs on the market
Smalley’s production team has greatly enhanced the ability to produce smaller and smaller springs, and this has culminated in the recent expansion of the popular YC & YCM series down to 5mm in diameter, with special designs being available down to 4mm in diameter.
Smalley wave springs are available in the UK from TFC, and product manager Simon Ward says: “One of the chief reasons for having to decline projects in the past was the limitation on coiling diameter but with these latest developments, being able to offer springs down to 4mm in diameter is a great opportunity for us to further develop our sales of these unique products.”
Ward highlights possibilities for designers within the medical, computer and robotics industries where these types of springs couldn't fit before. With ISO9001: 2008 approval incorporating Design Status, TFC’s engineering staff are able to offer a complete, free of charge engineering service and are available to assist with part selection, custom design, application requirements, material selection and more.
Applications are discussed in depth, first-off design data and drawings are submitted for approval to ensure our customers are provided with the correct design, first time. However, should modifications prove necessary, the no-tooling process and flexible manufacturing procedures mean the production of prototypes is easily and economically achieved.
