MAUMEE, OH, September 1, 2020 — Associated Spring RAYMOND, a global leader in providing pre-engineered solutions and standard catalog products, has launched an innovative Counterbalance Configurator Tool that makes it easy to identify the right gas strut for a specific application. This tool features advanced dynamic algorithms to build product recommendations based on user-provided application dimensions. The tool understands application nuances and delivers a selection of gas struts that meet size, stroke, and force requirements of an application.
As a result, the tool can narrow the selection of more than 12,000 gas struts down to the parts best suited to meet the unique demands of the application. The output of this tool includes a handle load curve that demonstrates the force and motion control throughout the lift of the application. Simply set the boundaries for acceptable load limits which includes max lift weight and view the range of handle loads and their corresponding struts in mounting position.
Having the right gas strut for the application allows engineers and businesses to begin prototyping much quicker to meet their customers’ evolving application demands. Additionally, customers can purchase products and services safely and securely the Associated Spring RAYMOND website, bringing an end-to-end customer experience to the Counterbalance Configurator Tool. By making a purchase within the website, engineers can reduce the steps needed to source a product and complete a purchase, thus boosting productivity.
Speaking about the benefits of the Counterbalance Configurator Tool, Robert Thompson, Global Product Manager said “With more than 12,000 gas struts and endless application variables, selecting the gas strut you need can be a daunting task. We wanted to make it easier for our customers to find exactly what they needed within our standard offering. This tool does exactly that. It does the work for you and provides the flexibility to evaluate different options within your design.”
The Counterbalance Configurator Tool is one of Associated Spring RAYMOND’s suite of application engineering tools and is ideal for use in the marine, heavy-duty truck, medical, and recreational vehicle (RV) industries. The tool is active 24 hours per day, seven days per week, enabling a business to communicate with customers and handle transactions regardless of the time zone.
The Counterbalance Configurator Tool is available on asraymond.com/configurator and soon on other language sites.
