Smalley Steel Ring Company Launches New Linear Spring Series

Lake Zurich, Illinois (May 27, 2013) — Smalley Steel Ring Company, the world leader in the manufacturing and development of Spirolox® Retaining Rings, Constant Section Rings and Wave Springs announces the release of the new Linear Spring Series. The new Linear Springs offer a selection of spring loads that react along a straight line, as opposed to a conventional spring that fits in a circular cavity. This means a linear spring may be located in an axial direction but providing a radial force.


Smalley Linear Springs are a continuous wave formed wire length produced from spring tempered materials. Linear Springs act as a load bearing device having approximately the same load/deflection characteristics as a wave spring. Axial pressure is obtained by laying the linear spring flat in a straight line.

Linear Springs are now available as a standard part from Smalley. Over 200 standard sizes are available from stock in both carbon and stainless steel. Smalley offers No-Tooling-Charges™ on special Linear Spring designs. Exotic alloys are available upon request. Smalley engineers are readily available to assist with your spring design.

Smalley offers complete information on the Linear Springs including a new catalog supplement featuring several series of standard springs that have varying loads but fit the same cavity. The Linear Springs are produced in a wide variety of materials to withstand most environments.
