Effectiveness, safety, customization, profitability – the diverse and complex requirements in drive and damping technology are constantly increasing and changing. How do development engineers approach them? What specific solutions do they create for different industrial and technological sectors? How are pioneering innovations successfully achieved that provide real added value? We discuss this and much more in our The Engineer's Blog.
Seismic protection is mandatory for the safety of structures, especially in earthquake-prone regions. In our latest blog post, we present the possibility of integrating RINGFEDER® Friction Springs into SAP2000®, one of the leading software solutions for designing and analysing structural systems. The instruction enables engineers with previous knowledge of SAP2000® dimension damping systems based on the Friction Spring.
The automotive industry punches and forms car body parts from sheet steel, which they receive from rolling mills in the form of steel coils. They are hot-rolled to the finished dimensions required by the customer.
Santa is preparing to deliver the presents to the children all over the world. This year he invested in a new E-Sled, as he plans to give the reindeers a break this year. Unfortunatley, the E-Sled is much heavier than the old one. The common skids break, if he tries to land the sled on the roofs, due to the weight of the E-Sled. But lucky Santa got our contact and we desiged 4 RINGFEDER® Friction Spring Dampers to prevent the sled from any damage.
