From medical devices to electronics, the world around us is getting smaller. “How small can you go?” This is one of the questions a Smalley engineer hears all the time … but a better question is how small do you need? As The Engineer’s Choice™ for Wave Springs and Spirolox Retaining Rings we have the answer!
Smalley’s newly expanded manufacturing capabilities now allow us to design and manufacture Smalley Wave Springs and Spirolox Retaining Rings down to 0.165” diameters! For over 50 years, Smalley engineers have pushed the limits on coiling technology. Smalley’s Crest-to-Crest Wave springs originated nearly 35 years ago with the promise of space savings and continue to provide spring height reductions of nearly 50% compared to standard coil springs. “We are now able to offer engineers space saving capabilities in applications and industries that have long sought the use of our technology,” states Jamie Madison, Smalley’s Product Engineering Manager. How small do you need?
