Our custom-engineered sealing solutions ensure the safe and reliable operation of a broad range of aerospace and defense equipment. For instance, Our low-friction spring-energized seal made from SP83HT material protects sensitive optoelectronics inside a helicopter gimbal, or "pod." A Bal Seal spring-energized custom face seal and UHMWPE S31 Series seal protect the optics in a rifle scope from potential damage caused by seawater and harsh weather. And a Bal Seal K-Series seal on the aileron actuator of a Reaper UAV keeps lubricants in and contaminants out.

Engineering Insights

Closed-Loop Functionality in Medical Electronics

In the world of medical electronics, the title for biggest breakthrough goes to closed loop functionality. This technological milestone has helped device designers achieve new levels of active implantable performance, and it has driven change in three crucial areas: power conservation (providing stimulation only as needed through neural feedback), improved patient efficacy (adjusting therapy based on changing patient condition), and better feedback tools (communicating real-time information via wireless to doctors).

Closed-loop devices, such as those used to control epilepsy, for example, use implantable multi-electrode arrays and amplifiers to record electrical signals. These signals can be used to predict a seizure, and can even apply preventative electrical stimulation in advance.

This closed-loop functionality in active implantables requires optimal power efficiency and signal isolation, and much of this is dependent upon the performance of electrical contacts and contact systems used to connect leads to batteries and electronics.
