Innovative Way to Take Up Tolerances!
Featured Product from Smalley
Linear Springs offer a selection of spring loads that react along a straight line, as opposed to a conventional spring that fits in a circular cavity. This means a linear spring may be located in an axial direction but provide a radial force.
Linear Springs are a continuous wave formed wire length produced from spring tempered materials. Linear Springs act as a load-bearing device having approximately the same load/deflection characteristics as a wave spring. Axial pressure is obtained by laying the linear spring flat in a straight line.
Linear Springs are now available as a standard part from Smalley. Over 200 standard sizes are available from stock in both carbon and stainless steel. Smalley offers No-Tooling-Charges™ on custom Linear Spring designs. Exotic alloys are available upon request. Smalley engineers are readily available to assist with your spring design.
Smalley offers complete information on the Linear Springs including a new catalog supplement featuring several series of standard springs that have varying loads but fit the same cavity. The Linear Springs are produced in a wide variety of materials to withstand most environments.
