Why attend HANNOVER MESSE 2019: Smalley

Steel ring maker Smalley will be displaying its latest wave spring technology advancements.


Hannover, Germany – During the 2019 HANNOVER MESSE trade show, taking place April 1-5, Smalley will highlight the latest wave spring technology advancements, including the new Nested Spirawave wave springs.  

These multiple turn, flat wire wave springs are coiled in parallel to produce 2x to 3x as much force as traditional single-turn wave springs. Nested Spirawave springs can be used to replace stacks of single-turn springs, eliminating misalignment and inconsistent loading.

To uncover why HANNOVER MESSE 2019 is a must attend event for visitors and exhibitors, we sat down with Lane Persky, Smalley's marketing manager.

GIE Manufacturing Group: Why attend HANNOVER MESSE 2019?

Lane Persky: HANNOVER MESSE 2019 is the largest industrial fair in the world. Six aspects of manufacturing are featured in a single show (Integrated Energy, IAMD, Digital Facroty, ComVac, Research and Technology and Industrial Supply) which means an incredible amount of information and new innovation is accessible all in one place. Smalley always showcases the latest innovations in wave spring technology at the show.

GIE MFG: What can people learn about the future of manufacturing technology?

LP: Smalley is able to produce retaining rings and wave springs in very small diameters, which will contribute to the new ways manufacturing is getting smaller. From robotic arms to automated manufacturing processes, our current and new products, such as Nested Spirawave Wave Springs, provide weight and space savings for new technologies.

GIE MFG: What does your company hope to accomplish at HANNOVER MESSE 2019?

LP: At HANNOVER MESSE we aim to educate current and future customers about the latest innovations in ring and spring technology, and how that technology can further improve their own manufacturing technologies. We understand that every application is unique and that often leads to the customization of our products. In exhibiting at the show, we can share with potential users of our products why customization with Smalley doesn't have to be a costly alternative.
