Smalley Steel Ring Company has announced 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 lying 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.
