Precision Spheres in Nickel

Goodfellow’s wide range of precision spheres offers researchers and engineers an extremely wide selection for research and development purposes. Why not learn more about our Nickel Spheres?

Commonly used in the automotive and polymer manufacturing sectors as well as in industrial lasers, Nickel Spheres are an integral part of Goodfellow’s extensive range of precision spheres for research and engineering. Nickel is malleable, ductile, resistant to heat and has good strength properties which – along with Nickel’s excellent corrosion resistance – make it suitable for many industries. Nickel Spheres are also magnetic at room temperature – a property which sets it apart from other precision spheres.

Goodfellow’s full range of precision spheres are available in diameters from 0.15mm to 20mm from stock and up to 150mm as a special order. Tolerances range from +/-0.5 to +/-10 microns, and sphericity from 0.075 to 2.500 microns. Most precision spheres supplied by Goodfellow are AFBMA Grade 25; however, the company can generally supply AFBMA Grade 3 up to Grade 200 and can often meet custom requests. Goodfellow also offers precision spheres with drilled holes for mounting on a spigot, as well as with a spigot, if required.

In general, precision spheres can be used in many applications such as:

  • Gauging and measuring standards
  • Down hole oil drilling
  • Fibre optics and lasers
  • Lenses
  • Electrical conductors
  • Flow control
