Springs and pressings

Gas spring market

The global gas spring market is thriving. Especially lockable gas springs. Pricing is good, the products keep finding new usage areas and industries. And the customer demands for these kind of gas springs are on a continues high level. At the moment it’s difficult to see where we’ll end up at the end of 2017 but at the moment it looks good.

Inline washing process

In some cases the purity of the stampings is really important, like in the automotive industry. I’ve read about custom-made washing equipment for the stamped parts to be cleaned, rinsed and dried. After that the products go through a quality control before delivery.

Happy Easter!

Time to wish you all a Happy Easter! Did you know that it’s actually possible to get color treatment for your springs, for example compression springs? Well, it’s true. Everything to make them fit in right?

Great machine park for efficient work

Let’s (torsion) spring into action and start the Easter holidays! Torsion springs are very commonly used since they are very flexible and with great machine parks the springs can even be made in only one machine. No extra handling needed. That’s what I call efficient.

Important to stand up

Do you work at a desk all day? Then you’ve probably heard that you should have an adjustable desk so you are able to both sit and stand up and work during the day. In different kind of adjustable ergonomic devices you find gas springs.

So don’t forget, make sure to stand up and work a few times during the day! Your body will thank you for it.

Medtec Europe

This week Medtec Europe in Stuttgart – the number one exhibition providing medical technology professionals – has gathered manufacturers and medical professionals from all over the world. Medical springs, stampings and other solutions have been discussed as well as shown in various stands. Mostly we’re talking about wire forms and stampings when it comes to produce for the medical applications.

“Rescue Loops” for your feet

I’ve heard about women having aching feet from wearing high heels. Apparently now there’s workout available for your feet, especially with focus on high heel damaged feet. The inventor of this kind of workout is a dancer and trainer. She created two sets of leather loops connected by a tension spring, to help work out the feet. Incredible.
