Preferred Supplier for Vlier Plungers

We stock a comprehensive inventory of Vlier spring plungers featuring both front- or back-end installation. The consistent quality, easy installation and wide selection of Vlier's plungers make Vlier the source for design engineers in medical equipment and systems.

Posi Hex, one of Vlier's standard plungers, is easily installed and removed from the back by simply using a hex wrench. Posi Hex is available in stainless steel alloy and has an integral hex socket, making it ideal for demanding applications while also providing maximum protection against rust and corrosion.

In addition to Posi Hex, our Vlier product offering includes a wide range of other standard plungers, all manufactured from stainless steel, carbon steel, nylon, Delrin® or Phenolic. Unlike other product lines, the Vlier standard plunger series ensures accurate, repeatable end forces. The plungers are designed specifically to be used for positioning, ejecting and locking, etc.

An ISO 9001 certified manufacturer, Vlier leveling pads are ideal for designs that require positioning, indexing, detenting, holding, ejecting, leveling and support.

Knobs, Handles, Handwheels

You’ll find more 250 round, lobed, marked, bar, clamping knobs, handwheels and handle pulls made from impact and chemical resistant materials for a neat appearance for finished applications that require adjustment in medical equipment.


Latches, Catches, Hinges

A wide variety of hinges, latches and catches in acrylic and stainless steel to meet your medical equipment design requirements, including pressure release/explosion hinges to prevent loss of heat and/or escape of gasses under normal conditions.

Precision Instruments

Also known as test indicators, dial indicators are frequently used to measure machinery calibrations and equipment tolerances. Digital indicators measure small distances between two surfaces that a standard gauge cannot reach. These precision instruments, available in digital and analog display, translate the small linear distance into rotational movement and display the measurement on a continuous dial or LED readout.

Digital calipers are precision measuring devices used to measure linear dimensions, thickness, and diameter. These devices have upper and lower parallel jaws that perform measurement with extreme accuracy and the output appears on an electronic LCD display.

Material Handling

Wide range of hand carts and dollies for transporting steel, glass, rigid material, as well as smaller units for medical equipment hardware.


Medical equipment manufacturers take advantage of our index plungers with lift ring, supplied with a nickel-plated housing and stainless-steel pin, as well as spring plungers are used for accurate positioning of components and come in a variety of sizes. These components use spring-force to apply pressure so the ball or nose will remain positioned.
