Linear spring series launched

Linear Springs are a continuous wave formed wire length produced from spring tempered materials which act as a load bearing device. TFC's Smalley linear springs 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, the company says. This results in a spring which, although located in an axial direction, provides a radial force between mating components.

Since the springs 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, burr free edge profile.

TFC now produces linear springs 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 individual customer designs without tooling costs remain and TFC engineers are available to discuss your application and provide a free-of-charge design service if required.
