Spring reduces crop damage

Thanks to this updated draper header cutting has become more efficient. I read that in an article on the internet. So what does this have to do with industrial springs? Well, according to the article thanks to this new design changes the castoring gauge wheel has increased flotation using a shock absorber and compression spring…

Damper with compression springs

I just read about a new damper and decoupler with compression spring system to improve noise, vibration and harshness performance of the accessory drive within the engine. Produced by Dayco. Spring usage is really changing with time and adapted to new components and needs. That’s what I call great engineering. Read the whole article Photo by…
