Lee Spring (MD&M West Booth 3364) introduces its Bantam Mini Compression Springs, adding smaller diameters to its Redux Wave Spring line, and expands its stock compression spring offering in wire sizes from 0.006 in. to 0.013 in. These springs combine strength with corrosion resistance. They start at wire diameter 0.004 in. and range up to 0.0055 in. in standard outside diameters 0.025 in., 0.04 in., and 0.057 in. Lee’s Bantam springs are made with Elgiloy, a cobalt-nickel alloy known for its high strength. It exhibits superior resistance in most corrosive environments, including acetic acid, ammonium chloride, citric acid, sodium chloride, and sodium sulfite. This material performs well in temperatures up to 850°F and is non-magnetic.
