KRL micro springs are the smallest nitinol springs–and the lightest actuators available anywhere! So, if you’re looking to build something small, KRL is the place to go!
Spring mandrel size (spring inner diameter) equal and smaller than 3.2mm is defined as Microspring.
The listing price is for per 5mm. If multiple units are ordered, a continuous length will be sent out unless said otherwise in the comments box during check out.
For bigger Springs, please check “Helical Springs” listings.
We use Mandrels to wrap springs, so mandrel size is the inner diameter of the springs. Other than what shown on the table below, other mandrel size can be made, contact us for customization.
Pitch is the distance between the center of adjacent wraps. We have 4 pitch sizes order-able online, but any pitch size can be made, contact us for customization.
