  • Ask the Expert - Replacing Snap Rings and Coil Springs
    We are back this week with another Ask the Expert Blog, where Smalley experts answer difficult questions about retaining ring and wave spring design. This week, our engineering experts answer some questions about snap ring and coil spring replacement with Smalley products.
  • Voice Coil Motors
    in a solenoid device makes these difficult to control. The voice coil motor can develop force in either direction by reversing polarity of the excitation. In a solenoid, a spring is typically required to produce force in the return direction, this spring force subtracts from the magnetic force
  • Principles of Solenoid Coil Design for Valves
    is de-energized, the spring pushes the armature away from the face of the coil housing, and in consequence, any part attached to the armature through the opening in the coil cap also moves away from the coil. When the coil is energized, the armature is attracted to the coil housing, compressing
  • Determining Right Hand or Left Hand Spring Wind Direction
    The direction of wind of a spring can be determined by simply holding it in your hand with your fingers placed around the outside of the body and your thumb pointing straight up. If the last coil ends in the same direction that your fingers are pointing, that is the hand (direction of wind
  • Forklift Tie Rod Saves OEM Cost & Improves Service Life
    Tie rods in forklift steering are traditionally metal-on-metal, which requires periodic re-greasing and leads to a shortened lifespan. They also include a coil spring and two cups behind the ball joint. CCTY Bearing's design utilized a metal on nylon, self-lubricating design that eliminated
  • Wave Spring Design Guide
    An introduction to Wave Springs and their advantages over conventional coil springs.
  • Wave Spring Application Infographic
    Wave springs feature an innovative design that can replace traditional coil springs.
  • Designing with Smalley Wave Springs
    Smalley Wave Springs are a series of flat wire compression springs offering numerous functional advantages over traditional coil or compression springs. While providing the same force and deflection as a traditional coil spring, wave spring technology enhances load precision and cuts down
  • The Elastic Force Transducer
    determine the relationship between the deflection of a coil spring and the force which causes it. For example, when the fisherman hangs his catch on a fish scale, a heavy fish pulls the scale's hook down farther than a light one. Inside that fish scale is nothing more complicated than a coil spring
  • Quieting Impact and Vibration (.pdf)
    Spring technology for dampening is relatively old. Stagecoaches had leaf springs, early trains had large, crude, coil-spring buffers (to absorb shocks when cars bumped together) and early automobiles made use of simple springs for dampening as well. However, these early springs were roughly
