CONNECTICUT SPRING & STAMPING ADDS CNC SWISS TURNING CAPABILITIES

Now offering complete machining capabilities for complex high tolerance components

Farmington, CT - Connecticut Spring & Stamping (CSS), a manufacturer of precision parts for the medical, aerospace, firearms and defense industries worldwide, announces that it has expanded its machining capabilities to include multi-axis CNC Swiss machining, ideal for medical applications, including minimally invasive surgical instruments, as well as numerous aerospace and firearms applications.


In addition to combining machining disciplines, CSS has also developed a proprietary process that significantly increases processing speed for tubular machined parts.

The new multi-axis Swiss machining capabilities are a natural progression for CSS, which has been machining parts for more than ten years and maintains a staff of expert skilled machinists. The CNC Swiss machine, a bar-fed automatic lathe that uses single point tooling to produce intricate finished parts with virtually no requirements for grinding or other secondary operations, enables the company to process additional parts for customers in its controlled environment, within the same quality culture for which the company is well known.

"CSS now offers customers a complete family of machining capabilities for complex high tolerance components, which results in faster throughput, reduced costs, and higher quality parts," said Steve Dicke, CSS VP of Marketing.

As part of its move towards increasing machining capabilities, CSS has also greatly expanded its component assembly capabilities. With its ability to produce components efficiently and at lower cost, CSS is helping medical device customers increase their business while minimizing capital expenditures and limiting the need for labor force growth.

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.
