If you're struggling with big EMI/RFI shielding challenges, we have a solution: the Bal Spring® canted coil spring. Its lightweight design, and ability to latch, lock, and isolate against vibration, makes it a multi-functional solution to your toughest engineering challenges.


Designing For Improved Signal Integrity in Downhole Tools


Designing a tool that consistently delivers great signal integrity and accurate data in harsh downhole conditions is one tough job. But choosing the right electrical conducting and EMI/RFI shielding components can make it a lot easier.

Exhibiting Around The World This Week

By now you know you can visit us this week in Germany but did you know we’re also exhibiting at the Electronics New England show in Boston?  If you’re a New England based OEM, or are in the area today and tomorrow, stop by Booth 1003, or visit Bal Seal to Showcase Spring at Electronics New England.

A Perk for Automotive Design Engineers

If you need to manage high current in electric or hybrid auto equipment, you need the Bal Seal Canted Coil Spring®. Its compact profile and multiple contact points give you more design flexibility. Visit us at Hannover’s E-Motive, Hall 25, Booth M11. For more information about our automotive applications, see our automotive video.

Engineering Informs Art

Ever wonder how your co-workers spend their personal time?  I do. And I'm often surprised to find subtle connections between the day jobs and the hobbies of people with whom I share my workdays.

Take Hamid Rastegar, for example. During the work week, Hamid designs seals for the some of the world’s most demanding applications. But on the weekends, you’ll find him at a potter’s wheel, spinning clay and expressing his art in the form of unique plates, bowls, teapots and pitchers.

AUVSI show (booth #2917) in Washington D.C. - Podcast

We just finished recording a podcast on engineering for unmanned vehicles, and I think it came out really well. You can check it out here.

When we record these things, we try to condense a lot of information into a nice, tidy, 3-minute package, and that's not always easy. There's a lot to talk about in the world of unmanned vehicles (it's a fascinating subject) but the idea was just to let people know a couple of things:

Good Reading, Good Resources

It's September, and I've got a couple of resources to share with you.

This week, as a result of sending out some information about the new materials we've developed, we were fortunate to catch the attention of the nice folks over at GIE Media. Specifically, we earned a mention in their flagship aerospace publication, Aerospace Manufacturing and Design.

Notes from the Road: Paris in June, New Literature for Aerospace/Defense

A military jet gently lifts off the runway and vertically ascends into the cloudy skies above. The roar of its afterburners causes the crowds below to cover their ears as the Eurofighter rolls into a hard bank and onto its next maneuver ...
