Medical devices getting smaller by the day
The latest technology means that devices are getting smaller every day. So the latest Spring technology has had to follow suit. Lee Spring responded by bringing its smallest Bantam ™ mini compression springs into the company's now 20,000 strong catalogue range.
Bantam™ mini compression springs are a unique line of miniature springs available in wire diameters of .0040", 0.0045", 0.0040" and 0.0055" with external diameters of 0.0025", 0.040" and 0.057". Available in a range of lengths from 0.005" to 0.0625". In order to maximise the performance of a diverse range of applications, notably for the Medical industry, Lee Spring chose 'Elgiloy' as the alloy most suitable for these springs.
Egiloy is a Nickel-Cobalt alloy known for its durability. It is 10% stronger than type 316 Stainless steel. It demonstrates a greater resistance to corrosive environments including lactic acid, ammonium chloride, citric acid, sodium chloride and sodium sulphate. This material performs well in temperatures up to 850°F and is non magnetic.
Bantam mini compression springs are used in many applications in diverse industries such as:
Pharmaceutical delivery devices
Security and locking devices
Electronic and illuminations controls
