July 3, 2013 – The Smalley Steel Ring Company has released a new Linear Spring series available in Canada from RotoPrecision. Linear Springs are produced from spring-tempered wire material that is shaped into waves along the length of the wire. They act as load bearing devices having approximately the same load and deflection characteristics as wave springs but are designed for straight-line applications as opposed to conventional wave springs, which are designed to fit in a circular cavity. The company says this means a linear spring may be located in an axial direction yet still provides a radial force. Linear Springs are now available in over 200 sizes with stock in carbon and stainless steel.
