Space and Weight Saving Design Solutions
TFC's Smalley wave springs offer space saving technology for the aerospace industry. These can replace conventional round wire coil springs by using less material and a smaller assembly size, resulting in reduced production costs and more effective product design.
The structure of the wave spring is made from flat spring metal, forming a multi-coil wave framework. This specific arrangement makes the spring suitable for applications where low operating heights are required since only around 50% of the axial height of a conventional round wire spring is necessary.
By replacing a conventional round wire spring with a flat wire wave spring within the same cavity, a more effective use of the available space can lead to improved product performance.
