12-page guide describes the form and function of Ball Seal Engineering’s custom-engineered seals, springs, and electrical contacts.

Contract Manufacturing Design/Engineering

Bal Seal Engineering Inc.’s 12-page guide, “Sealing, Connecting, Conducting and EMI/RFI Shielding Solutions,” gives 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 medical, aerospace and defense, analytical, automotive, and energy markets. 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 1 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.
