TFC Ltd. Datasheets for Compression Springs

Compression springs are the most recognizable of spring and are intended to oppose compaction in the direction of the axis. The spring is extended at rest, shorten and store energy when a load is applied, and is one most efficient energy storage devices available. Traditionally, they are wound and uniform in pitch and diameter, but these traits vary considerably today.

Product Name Notes
Interlaced Wave Springs An interlaced wave spring is formed from two or three constituent wave springs of similar thickness, amplitude and frequency. The constituent wave springs are wound together to interlace them so...
Nested Wave Springs Nested Wave Springs are pre-stacked in parallel from one continuous filament of flat wire. The need to stack individual springs for higher loads is no longer necessary. Nested springs result...
Single Turn Wave Springs (Imperial) Conventional Gap and Overlap Type Wave Springs are used in a wide variety of applications. For short deflections and low-medium forces, they function with precision and dependability. These two types...
Crest-to-Crest Wave Springs (Imperial)
Crest-to-Crest Wave Springs (Metric)
Crest-to-Crest Wave Springs are pre-stacked in series, decreasing the spring rate proportionally to the number of turns. Uses are typically applications requiring low-medium spring rates and large deflections with low-medium...
Single Turn Bearing Preload Springs (Metric) Smalley Circular-Grain bearing preload Wave Springs eliminate play and minimize bearing noise. The constant light/medium pressure they apply removes play between the ball bearings and the bearings’ inner and outer...
Single Turn, Narrow Section Wave Springs Smalley narrow section wave springs were originally designed to pre-load packings in telescoping hydraulic cylinders. They have also found other applications where working space is highly limited. This Smalley Wave...
Coil Springs TFC have years of experience in supplying specialist spring solutions to a wide variety of clients, including wave springs, standard compression springs, tension springs, torsion springs, wire shapes, flat springs,...
Wavo (Round Wire) Single Turn Wave Springs Wavo Springs are produced from round-section wire to provide higher loads while maintaining the accurate loading found in wave springs. As an alternative to Belleville or Disc Springs, the Wavo...
