Manufacturer Yasa Motors, which specialises in very high power and torque density axial flux motors, contacted TFC when it needed a spring solution to help out one of its leading Formula One customers.

Having established a standard product was not available for the specific bearing pre-load problem, with a maximum deadline requirement of two weeks from concept to final product, TFC was able to design, submit specifications and final approval drawings before delivering the finished product within the time frame.

Herminder Mathary, technical product manager at Yasa Motors, worked closely with TFC’s product manager, Simon Ward, to create an 80mm stainless steel, nested Smalley wave spring.

Mathary said: ‘Having dealt with TFC on previous occasions, we were confident a solution could be achieved but we were particularly delighted the time restraints were achievable and our customer’s demands were fully satisfied.’
