Smalley Nested Spirawave® wave spring seriesApril 28, 2020
Smalley’s new standard Nested Spirawave spring series provides the perfect wave springs for applications requiring high forces in tight radial and axial spaces. Coiled in parallel in two- or three-turn configurations, they are able to produce two to three times the force of a single-turn wave spring. When a single nested spring replaces a stack of single-turn wave springs, misalignment, inconsistent loading and miscounting issues are all eliminated, allowing for easy assembly and installation. Their sturdy and tangle-resistant design provides for simpler automated handling, all of which can reduce costs. Nested Spirawave springs are available standard from .500–4 in. (16–100 mm) in carbon and stainless steel and as customs from .157–120 in. (4–3,000 mm), with exotic alloy options available. Thousands of parts from stock are able to ship next-day, while non-stock items have as little as three week lead times. Nested springs can be found in applications such as bearing preload, valves, connectors and many more. Standard or custom, Smalley will provide you with the right part, in the right material, with no tooling charges.
