Bal Spring™ canted coil springs for electrical contact applications

Our canted coil springs are versatile electrical springs that offer improved contact performance, and can provide longer service life in demanding environments. The small coil size and the number of independent coils make the springs suitable for a wide variety of electrical contact designs, with maximum contact points for optimal current-carrying capability in electrical and/or EMI shielding uses. Each coil deflects independently to compensate for contact and surface variations, which allows for wider tolerances between mating parts. Multiple contact points provide for increased conductivity, which means lower operating temperatures and longer life.

Our spring technology is used for electrical contact applications in a wide variety of industries, including medical electronics, medical device, aerospace and defense, energy and automotive.
