New Nested Spirawave® Wave Spring Series Released
Smalley is pleased to announce the release of a new Nested Spirawave Wave Springs series.
Smalley has been producing nested wave springs as customs for over 30 years, but this
will mark the first standard series on the market.
These multiple turn, flat wire wave springs are coiled in parallel to produce two to three times as much force as traditional single-turn wave springs. Nested Spirawave springs can be used to replace stacks of single-turn springs, eliminating misalignment and inconsistent loading.
The sturdy, tangle-resistant design allows for simple, time saving automated handling. Reduced costs can be realized from the use of a single spring and a simplified assembly process.
“Introducing a standard line of nested springs gives customers the ability to streamline production while meeting their high force requirements,” says Dan Frank, Research and Development Engineer.
Standard Nested Spirawave springs are available from .500 to 4" or 16 to 3000 mm in carbon and stainless steel. Stock parts are available for overnight shipping.
Nested Spirawave springs are specified for many applications including heavy duty bearing preload, connectors, valves, and seals. The increased forces produced make them ideal for industries that require precision wave springs with high loads.
If one of our standard nested springs doesn’t meet your application requirements, Smalley has a team of experienced engineers capable of designing a custom nested spring. Custom or standard, Smalley will get you the right part, in the right material, with No Tooling Charges™.

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.
