Bal Seal Engineering Inc. has published an expanded guide describing the form and function of its custom-engineered seals, springs and electrical contacts, as well as the benefits of its engineering process.
The 12-page guide, titled “Sealing, Connecting, Conducting and EMI/RFI Shielding Solutions,” uses photorealistic application images and descriptive insets to give readers a detailed look at where and how Bal Seal spring-energized seals, Bal Spring canted coil springs, and Bal Contact electrical contacts work in aerospace and defense, analytical, automotive, energy, and medical equipment. A graph in the guide’s spring technology section compares the deflection of canted coil springs with other seal energizer types, including V-springs, ribbon springs and O-rings.
The guide also provides information about the company’s collaborative engineering approach, which forges “innovation partnerships” with OEMs and tier suppliers who want to make their products faster, stronger, lighter, or more functional. The Bal Conn electrical contact, which is currently used in more than a million active medical implantables worldwide, is cited as one example of how this approach can yield breakthrough solutions for a device maker—and an entire industry.
The expanded guide is available for download from the company’s online technical library at www.balseal.com.
