Internal and external snap rings are offered to retain or locate components on shafts or in bores.
Applications: Exercise equipment
Specified in place of conventional round wire compression springs, Generally, wave springs occupy 30-50% of the compressed height space of comparable round wire springs offering more deflection with the same load specifications.
Applications: Drug delivery devices
Custom designed stamped or wire-formed shaped components which perform a spring function.
Applications: Prosthetics and orthotics

A Belleville washer is a type of non-flat washer with a slight conical shape or curvature which gives the washer a spring characteristic.
Applications: Dental equipment and devices
The most common spring type and a very efficient energy storage device. Compression springs are typically formed into a straight cylinder using a round wire. Other forms include conical, hourglass, barrel, square, ovate, rectangular or reduced ends, produced from round or flat wire.
Applications: Prosthetics and orthotics, diagnostic instruments, dental equipment and devices, dispensing systems (non-drug), exercise equipment, reinforcement spirals, electrical contacts
Springs which exert a constant force over its full range of motion, constant force springs are produced as either motor type (drum take up) or extension type (strip end connection).
Applications: Surgical instruments, bed lift mechanisms, MRI and X-Ray machines
Designed to store energy and exert a required pull force when extended to a specific length. Extension springs require a method of attachment as part of an assembly. Customized end configurations and orientations such as hooks, loops, and threaded inserts are a few of the options available.
