SANTA MARIA, CA. December 16, 2009
The HELI-CAL® Flexure is a flexible helix (curved beam) machined into a unique configuration that incorporates special design requirements, performance features and/or characteristics. The material is basically unlimited.

When used as a spring, the multi-functional flexure provides desired and predictable elastic performance in compression, extension, torsion, lateral bending and lateral translation modes. One huge advantage of this technology—it enables customer specified end-attachments, such as tangs, clamps, flanges or threaded ends to be integrated into a single multi-functional component.
