Lee Spring Grows Catalog by Going Smaller


Brooklyn NY... The world is shrinking every day and so are the size requirements for springs. Lee once again listens and responds with stock spring solutions designed to solve customers' growing requirements for smaller sizes. Lee Spring introduces Bantam Mini Compression Springs, adds smaller diameters to their REDUX(TM) Wave Spring line and expands their stock compression spring offering in wire sizes from .006" to .013".

BANTAM Mini Compression Springs are Lee's unique response to customers' needs for miniature stock springs that combine strength with corrosion resistance. These products start at wire diameter .004", just slightly thicker than a human hair, and range up to .0055" in standard outside diameters .025", .040" and .057". In order to meet and maximize the performance needs of a potentially diverse range of applications, Lee Spring selected Elgiloy® as the alloy for Stock BANTAM Springs.

Elgiloy® is a Cobalt-Nickel alloy known for its high strength, e.g. 10% stronger than Type 316 Stainless Steel. 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. Elgiloy® is non-magnetic. Applications include medical devices, pharmaceutical delivery devices, petro-chemical processes, aerospace and marine industries. . Bantam Mini Compression Springs are also available in Custom Designs in Elgiloy® and other alloys.

As assemblies get smaller, so has the demand for smaller REDUX(TM) Stainless Steel Wave Springs. Lee's REDUX line now includes designs to fit 1/4" and 5/16" hole diameters as well as additional designs in the 1/2", 9/16" and 5/8" ranges.

Lee's range of "Instrument" Series Stock Compression Springs continues to grow with even more designs in wire sizes from .006 through .013". The 1100+ products in this series are offered in a choice of three materials: Music Wire, Type 302 Stainless and Type 316 Stainless Steel.
