Wave spring and retaining ring products
TFC has been the leading European supplier of Smalley retaining rings and flat wire wave spring products for more than 30 years. Our extensive standard ranges, some of which hold AS approval, are available off-the-shelf for immediate delivery. All of our Smalley wave spring and retaining ring products are manufactured using a unique edgewinding manufacturing process which, unlike traditional die-stamped products, totally eliminates any tooling charges.
This process greatly increases design flexibility and enables us to provide special designs economically and, if necessary, to amend designs at the pre-production stage without compromising the finished product design. At TFC, quality runs through the entire business and continued investment in the right people and products has enabled the company to provide superior market knowledge and customer service.
Supply chain partners that include manufacturers, logistics and information technology are carefully selected to fit that commitment to quality and service.
Having been a Quality Assured company since 1981, our approvals include Aerospace AS9100C and AS9120 (BS EN9100:2009 and 9120:2010) Standards. This approval, based on ISO 9001, BS EN9100 includes additional aerospace-specific requirements and provides the industry with a standardised set of requirements to help improve quality throughout the supply chain and reduce cost through continual improvement.
