New advances in ring and spring manufacturing

22 March 2016

From medical devices to electronics, the world around us is getting smaller. “How small can you go?” This is one of the questions a TFC engineer hears all the time.

Smalley’s newly expanded manufacturing capabilities now allow TFC to design and manufacture The Engineer’s Choice for Wave Springs and Spirolox Retaining Rings down to 4mm/0.165” diameters.

For over 50 years, TFC’s engineers have pushed the limits on coiling technology. Smalley’s Crest-to-Crest Wave springs originated nearly 35 years ago with the promise of space savings and continue to provide spring height reductions of nearly 50 percent compared to standard coil springs. “We are now able to offer engineers space saving capabilities in applications and industries that have long sought the use of our technology,” states Simon Ward, TFC’s Product Manager.

How small do you need? TFC’s engineering team continue to push the coiling limits. Why not challenge them to see if the company can design a ring or spring for your application? Contact its engineers now to answer design questions and provide solutions that work best for your application.
