Wave Springs

The same power in less space

Wave springs have the advantage of saving space and weight when used to replace compression springs

Unlike compression springs, wave springs have a lower market penetration, and they are not considered a solution to problems of space and cost. At RPK Group, our engineers work together with our customers’ engineers to explain the virtues of these products and reduce the lack of knowledge that exists surrounding them. For example, we have had success designing for applications with dynamic and relaxation requirements, as well as axial loads, to ensure linear opening of hydraulic valves.

In addition, we have promoted cost saving programs, replacing compression springs with wave springs, making significant savings in weight and cost, and increasing the demand for materials. Due to the rising demand for flat materials, our internal rolling line is growing steadily, rolling tons of material annually in order to provide a fast cost-effective response for our customers. An ideal solution for engineers looking for space-saving solutions for the most demanding designs.

Advantages and benefits of wave springs

  • Space and weight savings (50% height reduction)
  • Reduced non-axial forces. Dynamic performance due to R&D in materials and processes
  • We are the only company in the world able to make both right-hand and left-hand wound wave springs


  • Starting at 0.10 x 0.4 mm (0.004 x 0.016 in) 
  • Min. thickness: 0.10 mm (0.004 in) 
  • Max. thickness: 2.5 mm (1 in)
  • Other dimensions as required


The choice of the right material, surface treatment and coating are critical for the final quality and safety of the product. From stainless steels to the most specific materials bought in from the best suppliers.  

  • Carbon steel, almost for every application 
  • Stainless steel, ideal for high stress and fatigue applications 
  • Inconel  
  • Elgiloy 
  • Hastelloy 
  • Chrome silicon
  • Other materials according to your special requirements
