Single Turn Wave Springs

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.

Bearing Preload Springs

wave spring5

These two types of Smalley Wave Springs permit radial expansion or growth in diameter within a cavity, without the binding or hang-up normally associated with die stamped wave washers. Just as their terms imply, the gap type is split to retain a gap between the ends; while the overlap type has overlapping ends. Thus, the ends are free to move circumferentially as the spring outside diameter grows during compression.

For example, the O.D. of a Gap Type Wave Spring would fit .020 loose per side in a bore. Its I.D. clears a shaft by .010 per side. As the spring is deflected, the O.D. and I.D. grow larger until the O.D. contacts the bore. Continued deflection causes the gap ends to move closer together while the O.D. presses against the bore. An Overlap Type Wave Spring permits this type of cycling action in a similar manner.

Stock Sizes

Smalley offers 3 different series of single turn wave springs from stock:

SSR Series (PDF)
Gap and Overlap type Wave Springs available in both carbon and stainless steel from 1/2″ to 16″ diameters

SSR-N Series (PDF)
Gap Type Wave Springs available in carbon and stainless steel from 3.250″ to 7.750″ diameters

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 Spring series is designed to fit into a bore with a light snap to assure perfect concentricity between the wave spring and assembly. When these narrow section wave springs are compressed, radial expansion is taken up by the gap in the spring to eliminate binding.

SSB Series (PDF) Bearing Preload Springs
Gap and Overlap type Wave Springs designed to match popular metric bearing sizes. Available in both carbon and stainless steel from 16 mm to 600 mm diameters.

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 races. Preloading can reduce the possibility of bearing damage due to vibration (vibratory loading) and wear due to repetitive and non-repetitive runout.

Bevestig de Lager Conditie door Geluidsanalyse

Bevestig de Lager Conditie door Geluidsanalyse(0)

Uit verschillende onderzoeken is vastgesteld dat het monitoren met ultrasound zeer vroeg waarschuwt voor lagerschades. Verschillende stages van lager falen zijn vastgesteld: 8dB  boven basiswaarde geeft gebrek aan smering aan; 12dB boven basiswaarde is het begin van lagerschade; 16dB boven basiswaarde geeft een verder gevorderd stadium aan van lagerschade (zichtbare schades); terwijl  35-50dB toename boven basiswaarde zware lagerschade aangeeft. Voor degene die willen werken met spectrum

Hoe Ultrasound Lager Inspectie Werkt

Hoe Ultrasound Lager Inspectie Werkt(0)

Mechanische verplaatsing produceert een breed spectrum van geluid. Een grote bijdrage van stress in machines is wrijving. Ultrasound instrumenten detecteren wrijving. Door te focussen op een smalle band van hoge frequenties, detecteert de Ultraprobe subtiele veranderingen in amplitude en geluidkwaliteit geproduceerd door operationele apparatuur. Daarna moduleert de Ultraprobe de normaal niet te detecteren geluiden en

Onderhoudsvrije lagers van Federal-Mogul ondersteunen één van ‘s werelds langste hangbruggen

Onderhoudsvrije lagers van Federal-Mogul ondersteunen één van ‘s werelds langste hangbruggen(0)

Federal-Mogul Corporation heeft onderhoudsvrije lagers voor een van ‘s werelds langste hangbruggen ontwikkeld. Na voltooiing later dit jaar zal de Hardanger Fjord Bridge in het zuidwesten van Noorwegen als een van de grootste in de wereld, verspreid over 1.310 meter (4297 ft) tussen pylonen in dienst worden genomen. Er zullen in totaal 128 gewrichtslagers, ontwikkeld

Identifying and correcting the causes of bearing failure(0)

BARDEN CORPORATION | PLYMOUTH UK Identifying and analysing the root cause of a bearing failure is critical in order to prevent similar failures from occuring again. Brian Williams, Quality Director at The Barden Corporation, urges companies to introduce a regime that enables the symptoms of bearing damage to be recognised early, as well as putting
