Custom Springs

Springs are mechanical devices, typically made of metal, that store mechanical energy. They come in a variety of forms including compression, torsion,  extension, constant force, and others. The shape can be coiled (helical) or flat and they are used in everything from garage doors and mechanical equipment, to electronics devices and writing instruments.

Silicon Valley Spring designs and manufactures custom springs and wire forms for use in high performance and high temperature applications. They work with a broad range of standard, specialized […]

Adhesion Promoter/Adhesion Primer

An adhesion promoter or adhesion primer is a type of chemical treatment specially formulated to improve the strength and performance of an adhesive. Adhesion promoters and primers are most beneficial when using tapes, but are also useful when using epoxies and other liquid adhesives.
A variety of adhesion primers and adhesion promoters exist, with unique formulas available for  use with various substrate materials. Special formulations are available for use with plastics like polypropylene, polyethylene, and ABS, metals and painted metals, glass, […]

EDM (Electrical Discharge Machining)

Electrical discharge machining (EDM) is a subtractive manufacturing process in which the desired part or product shape is obtained using electrical discharges, or “sparks,” to remove material from an electrically-conductive metal workpiece. Material is removed via a series of rapidly recurring current discharges between two electrodes that are separated by a specialized dielectric liquid. The workpiece is submerged in this liquid and serves as one electrode; the second electrode is the “tool” which makes cuts, drills holes, or otherwise processes […]

Submersible Pump

A submersible pump is, as the name suggests, a type of water pump with a hermetically sealed motor close-coupled to the body of the pump. This design allows the entire pump to be submerged in the fluid it is being used to pump.
The key advantage of a submersible pump over, say, a jet pump is that a submersible pump prevents pump cavitation—the formation of vapor cavities (or liquid-free “bubbles”) in a liquid, which, under high pressure, can implode and cause […]
