Video 1: Canted coil springs simplify connector designs by reducing the number of components, decreasing space and materials required, and minimizing assembly time. Customers save on overall system costs.
Fields That Can Benefit from Canted Coil Springs:
Canted coil springs, sometimes called slant coil springs or slanted coil springs, are ideal for all push-pull and snap-on connectors. They allow engineers to target connecting and disconnecting force, as well as electric current. At the same time, the spring may provide tactile and audio feedback. Even the connector's coupling and de-coupling force can be differentiated by design.
iConn Engineering designs and manufactures high-quality canted coil springs with sophistication and precision to ensure repeatability and reproducibility. We are ISO 9001-2015 certified. Every spring or seal is tailored to a specific customer application, taking into account the mechanical, electrical, dimensional, and environmental requirements.
The coupling force of a canted coil spring connector can be deliberately chosen with different spring configurations (examples in Video 1 or 2 above). For example, the springs in the image below are similar in size and can all fit into the same spring gland or groove. They differ in spring configurations/dimensions and generate significantly different connecting force (or carry higher electric current, if necessary). Each spring creates a functionally different connector without changing the look or dimensions. iConn can definitively tell a customer whether a canted coil spring can fulfil the desired mechanical and electrical requirements.

Viedo 2: One canted coil spring can combine both mechanically controlling and electrically conducting functions in a connector, while also providing tactile and audio feedback.
Our canted coil spring wire diameters range from 0.05 mm (0.002 inch) to 2.00 mm (0.079 inch). Material choices vary from stainless steel, copper alloys, nickel alloys, to titanium. Plating is optional based on application requirements.
Springs that fit ALL of the following criteria are standard:
1) Wire diameter between 0.28 mm (0.011 inch) and 1.50 mm (0.059 inch)
2) Coil width between 1.5 mm (0.039 inch) and 15 mm (0.591 inch)
3) Spring linear length between 20 mm and 180 mm
4) Wire materials are either stainless steel or copper alloy
5) Light or medium in spring force
Non-standard springs are available with longer lead time and higher price. Please contact us directly for a price quote at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
