Introducing the Smallest Wave Springs on the Market
The question you are asking should not be how many miles did I ride or how many steps did I take, but “how did someone make a wave spring that small?” As engineers around the world design smaller and smaller assemblies, the question becomes, where can I find the compact components to support my designs?
Smalley has the answer with our newly expanded Crest-to-Crest Wave Spring Series. Smalley’s popular C (imperial) and CM (metric) Series have been expanded; standard sizes are now available from stock down to .188” and 5 mm in diameter. “Smalley was the originator ...
Smalley has the answer with our newly expanded Crest-to-Crest Wave Spring Series. Smalley’s popular C (imperial) and CM (metric) Series have been expanded; standard sizes are now available from stock down to .188” and 5 mm in diameter.
“Smalley was the originator of the Crest-to-Crest Wave Spring,” states Darryl McBride, Smalley’s Director of Engineering. “I was amazed when I saw our springs coiled up to 12 feet in diameter, what surprised me even more was how much engineering went into designing smaller. Our expanded spring series will open up possibilities for designers in the medical, computer and robotics industries, where wave springs couldn’t fit before,” states McBride.
How small do you need? Our engineering and manufacturing teams continue to push the coiling limits; we are able to design a custom solution for your application down to .157” or 4 mm in diameter. Ask Smalley™ is not just a slogan, it is what we do best. We answer your design questions and provide you the solutions that work best for your application.
Smalley meets international standards of excellence, including ISO 9001, ISO/TS16949, AS9100, and ISO 14001.

Linear Springs Supplement
Smalley Linear Springs are a continuous wave formed (marcelled) wire length produced from spring tempered materials. They 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.
