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."

Schmalz Technology Development - Vacuum Generation without Compressed Air - Flexible and Intelligent

• Vacuum generation that's 100% electrical; • Integrated intelligence for energy and process control; • Extensive communication options through IO-Link interface; Schmalz already offers a large range of solutions that can optimize handling process from single components such as vacuum generators to complete gripping systems. Particularly when used in autonomous warehouse, conventional vacuum generation with compressed air reaches its limits. Compressed air often is unavailable in warehouses. Schmalz therefore is introducing a new technology development: a gripper with vacuum generation that does not use compressed air. The vacuum is generated 100% electrically. This makes the gripper both energy efficient and mobile. At the same time, warehouses need systems with integrated intelligence to deliver information and learn. This enables the use of mobile and self-sufficient robots, which pick production order at various locations in the warehouse. Furthermore, Schmalz provides various modular connection options from its wide range of end effectors in order to handle different products reliably and safely.
