All Springs Are Not Equal

Wave Springs offer the unique advantage of space savings when used to replace coil springs. With their smooth, circular coiled sinusoidal wave form, and rolled round edges of pre-tempered wire, Smalley’s edgewound Wave Springs offer many advantages:

  • Reduced spring height by 50%
  • Same force and deflection as coil springs
  • Fit tight radial and axial spaces
  • Over 4,000 standard sizes in carbon and stainless steel.
  • No Tooling Charges for special designs
  • Exotic alloys for all environments

Spirolox Rings

Spirolox Rings are manufactured by coiling the ring from flat wire and have many advantages over stamped retaining rings/circlips.

  • Economically produced in stainless steel
  • Easy installation and removal (see guide below)
  • No tooling charges on custom designs
  • Available in a wide range of exotic materials and finishes
  • Special end configurations to suit your application

Our supply of spiral rings includes a bespoke service to meet your exact requirements and our expansive range is used in a number of industries including petrochemical, automotive and aerospace.
