CONNECTICUT SPRING & STAMPING TO FEATURE TIGHT TOLERANCE SPRINGS AND STAMPING CAPABILITIES AT MD&M WEST

Visit Booth # 1335

Farmington, CT - Connecticut Spring & Stamping ( CSS ), a manufacturer of precision parts for the medical, aerospace, firearms and defense industries worldwide, announces that it will be featuring its medical product components at MD&M West 2012, at the Anaheim Convention Center, from February 14-16, 2012. CSS will be showcasing its broad technical expertise in developing and manufacturing precision medical product components, including springs and progressive stampings, to the medical device marketplace at booth # 1335.


CSS will be displaying many tight tolerance springs, which are used in minimally invasive handheld surgical devices. Springs are manufactured from a wide range of flat stock and round wires ranging from 002" to .350" in diameter and are produced according to customer specifications. CSS offers spring prototyping and complete new product development services. Low volume, short-run manufacturing is available, as well as higher volume production and warehousing.

CSS will also showcase its metal stamping expertise in the medical device arena, which includes prototyping and high speed progressive die stamping from 30-300 tons, modular die options and short run stamping. CSS has vastly expanded its machining capabilities and machines critical features into many parts supplied to the medical industry. The company has supplied stampings for hand held surgical devices, endoscopic clip appliers, suturing devices, and staple removers. Drive channels, jaws, surgical staples, and titanium clips are some of the components produced for these assemblies.

" CSS has an expertise in assisting with part and tooling design, ultimately developing sophisticated tooling to produce extremely tight stack tolerances, less than a thousandth of an inch," said Steve Dicke , Vice President of Sales and Marketing at CSS (www.ctspring.com). "We specialize in collaborating with customers to optimize their design objectives."

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
