CONNECTICUT SPRING & STAMPING ANNOUNCES ELECTRONICS CAPABILITIES

Springs and stampings from prototype through high volume production

Farmington, CT - Connecticut Spring & Stamping (CSS), a manufacturer of precision parts for the aerospace, medical, firearms and defense industries worldwide, announces its wide range of springs and stampings for the electronics industry. CSS has a 40-year history of working as a trusted partner with major electronics manufacturers, from collaborating in product development and prototyping through high- and low-volume manufacturing. Parts consignment at customer warehouses is offered to decrease the costs of carrying parts inventory.


CSS's history goes back to its early development of a design for stamped D-shells still used in computer connectors. The company manufactures and assembles stampings and springs used in circuit breakers, sensors, controls and computer connectors, including pressure release valves, spring regulators, plunger return springs, as well as wire forms, clutch springs, and actuator and backup rings. Major customers include General Electric Corporation, TE Connectivity (Tyco), Eaton Corporation (Cutler-Hammer) and Parker Hannifin Corporation.

Known for its extremely rapid turnaround time capabilities, CSS works in conjunction with customers from product development and prototyping and continuing on through high volume production.

For one recent innovative circuit breaker application designed for areas where space is at a premium and the ability to upgrade electrical systems is critical, CSS consulted on the wire sizes, loads and spring designs, and then provided prototypes and engineering samples on a fast-track basis to meet the customer's product launch timetable. With CSS's consignment program, parts are manufactured and shipped directly to a customer's warehouse and the customer is not invoiced until the parts are actually used.

"CSS specializes in collaborating with electronics customers to achieve their design objectives," said Steve Dicke, vice president of sales and marketing at CSS (www.ctspring.com). "We are experts in assisting our customers with part design for manufacturability and consistency."

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.
