Retaining RingsSmalley offers thousands of Retaining Rings for thousands of applications:

Smalley offers standard spiral-wound retaining rings made from carbon and stainless steel in diameters from 7/16" to 15" for light, medium, and heavy-duty applications, internal or external. You can also choose from a broad selection of special application retaining rings in diameters up to 85", made from a variety of materials, and with tabs, prongs or other devices to facilitate assembly and disassembly. A wide choice of metric retaining rings are also available. All Smalley retaining rings are available with a choice of standard and special finishes.

Wave SpringsWhy more design engineers are specifying Smalley Compression Wave Springs: instead of conventional round wire springs, coil springs, or wavy washers, more and more design engineers are specifying compression wave springs for taking up play and compensating for dimensional variations in tight radial and axial spaces under both static and dynamic conditions. Reason: Compared to those alternatives, compact wave springs save space and provide more precise load deflection characteristics. This allows engineers to design smaller assemblies with lower free lengths and/or lower operating heights -- sometimes by as much as 50% -- while improving deflection characteristics.

Retaining RingsSmalley is a manufacturer of specialty industrial fasteners and springs for aerospace and general industrial use, and Spirolox also manufactures similar products.

"Smalley is looking forward to providing Spirolox customers with the same, industry best quality and service we supply our current customers throughout the world", says Mark Greenhill, Vice President of Smalley. "Smalley also offers Spirolox customers a wider and deeper range of precision Spiral Retaining Ring and Wave Spring products", according to Greenhill.
