Heavy duty hinge for spring closure
Springs, Dampers & Shock Absorbers : 03 August, 2013
Heavy metal doors, metal furniture and heavy panels often call for spring closure – which is addressed by this range of aluminium spring hinges from FDB Panel Fittings which offer automatic opening and closing with high performance spring torques up to 3.8Nm – such that it is possible to move doors up to 90kg with just three hinges
How motion control with damping can improve safety
Springs, Dampers & Shock Absorbers : 24 June, 2013
Sugatsune was recently contacted by a company that had suffered two industrial accidents in quick succession, both involving service hatches on production line equipment. In both cases a flap had descended unexpectedly on an arm or hand. A safety mechanism had been misused on one and simply wasn’t present on the second. So what’s the best way of preventing accidents like these?
Optimal leaf spring for retail lighting developed in tight timeframe
Springs, Dampers & Shock Absorbers : 25 May, 2013

Miniature gas spring manages precision engineering and heavy lifting
Springs, Dampers & Shock Absorbers : 07 November, 2012
Lesjöfors has developed a new gas spring with a cylinder of just 12mm diameter and a rod diameter of only 4mm. It is now available as a standard part in over 110 different combinations of lengths and forces. The driving force behind the development was a customised solution for a customer in Belgium. It will be an excellent alternative for applications needing low force demands in limited space in the applications.
