Spring workshop

Have you ever taken part of a course in spring technology? I did once. I talked my way into a course one of my colleagues had for customers since I wanted to learn more about the technical aspects of our company and production of e.g. torsion springs. This course was for construction engineers talking about…

Safety first in our buses

Sometimes I wish buses had real seat belts, both public transports as well as more long distance travelling buses. And make sure people actually use the seat belts. There’s been a few too many accidents lately if you ask me. Schools travelling to a ski resort and driving off the road, young people getting killed…

Industries modernizing their manufacturing

Many industries struggle with new conditions and the “fourth industrial revolution”. Modernizing the way of working and thinking is an important part and the aerospace industry is one of them. Demands of cheaper and more effective solution make the industry screaming for more skilled employees to cope with the development needed for the industry. The…

A new reality?

One of many ‘buzz words’ at the moment is “Augmented Reality” and how it’s entered the world of manufacturing. So how far has the development gotten? Not very far to be honest. Mostly we’re talking about “mixed reality” where the real environment works together with the virtual reality. With this said I’m sure we’ll see…

Cut to the chase

The other day I read about a report from a school inspection in Canada a week ago. They were talking about safety in school and apparently old style paper cutters are a safety hazard since they don’t have safeguards on them. These safeguards available for paper cutters contain torsion springs on the blade arm. I…

Think outside the box

Rubber, plastic or steel. It’s time to think outside the box when it comes to the most demanding, high-wear, abrasion and impact applications. Engineers are now working with cast polyurethanes. To make it work better, among many other things of course, the torsion spring is modified. Great job! Read the whole article here
