Disruptive Alternative for Metal Compression Springs Expands Product Development Possibilities

December 05

Design engineers are constantly looking for new technologies to improve product design performance and create points of differentiation for their companies. For products utilizing a traditional metal compression spring, a newly-developed carbon composite compression spring is improving mature product performance attributes. The new technology also offers a fresh approach for emerging innovations that require unique design considerations. In this webinar, we will introduce the audience to configurable, disc spring designs utilizing carbon fiber reinforced polymers. These surpass performance attributes of standard helical, metal springs and act as a catalyst to push boundaries for unexplored or under development applications. 

Primary Topics: 
- Disrupting standard design considerations for springs 
- How properties of composites apply to disc spring design 
- Performance and design considerations 
- Uncovering niche uses 

Presenter: Greg Hazard
