TFC launches new linear spring series

15 July 2013

Smalley linear springs from TFC offer a selection of spring loads that react along a straight line as opposed to a conventional helical spring that fits in a circular cavity.

This results in a spring which, although located in an axial direction, provides a radial force between mating components.

Linear springs are a continuous wave formed wire length produced from spring tempered materials which act as a load bearing device. Since they are manufactured using the same technology that is applied to the production of Smalley edge coiled flat wire wave springs, they have the same load/deflection characteristics and a burr-free edge profile.

Linear springs from TFC are now produced as a standard item with over 200 sizes readily available from stock in both carbon spring steel and stainless steel. However, the ability to provide unique customer designs without tooling costs remain, and TFC engineers are available to discuss applications and provide a free-of-charge design service if required.

TFC offers complete information on their new linear spring series, including a catalogue supplement featuring several series that have varying loads but which fit within the same cavity.
