Lee Spring is introducing Bantam Mini compression springs that are manufactured from Elgiloy, a high-strength, corrosion-resistant nickel alloy. Furthermore, Lee Spring and will soon be adding smaller sized products to its range of stock springs.
Designed to combine strength with corrosion resistance, the smallest Bantam Mini spring features a wire diameter size of 0.102mm (0.004inch), just slightly thicker than a human hair, and the range extends up to 0.140mm (0.0055inch) in standard outside diameters of 0.635mm (0.025inch), 1.016mm (0.040inch) and 1.448mm (0.057inch).
To meet the performance needs of a diverse range of applications the springs are manufactured in Elgiloy, a cobalt-chromium-nickel alloy known for its high strength. It is 10 per cent stronger than grade 316 stainless steel and exhibits superior corrosion resistance. Elgiloy also performs well in temperatures up to 454degC (850degF) and is non-magnetic.
Application areas envisaged for Mini Bantam springs include medical devices and pharmaceutical delivery products, plus equipment for the petrochemical processing, aerospace and marine industries. Custom designs will be offered in Elgiloy and other alloys.
