Are you about to start a gas spring project? Make sure your spring manufacturer has a good technical support. And use that support for questions and advice concerning personal installation or maybe you need help with calculating the best possible gas springs and mounting points for you applications.
This week it’s time for one of the world’s leading industrial shows at the Hannover Messe. More than 6500 exhibitors from 70 different countries are expected. Are you going? I know the industrial spring division will be represented, showing springs and interesting projects. Maybe some gas springs, torsion springs or stampings on display in the different showcases? If you have the time I would truly recommend a visit.
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.
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.
I know. It’s THAT time of the year. Hockey season is ending and we’ve come as far as quarter finals. And of course for me as a industrial spring nerd I can’t help thinking of all the gas springs that are everywhere in this sports arena. From the ventilation to the exercise bikes the players use after the game.
Here I found a whole installation step by step, how to install gas spring hatch supports on boats. Isn’t it lovely?
Many older boats don’t have the same support hinged hatches as more new models do. So if you want to keep make sure your fingers and toes are safe, gas springs could be a good idea to install on the hatches. Just make sure you know what you’re doing, or let an engineer do it for you.
