Announcing the New Counterbalance Configurator Tool

EVESHAM, England — Associated Spring RAYMOND, a global leader in providing pre-engineered solutions and standard catalogue 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 the size, stroke, and force requirements of an application.

As a result, the tool will narrow down our expansive collection of gas struts - more than 12,000 - to the parts best suited for the application. An added benefit of this tool is the ability to visualise the force and motion control of the handle load curve during the lifting process. Set the boundaries for acceptable load limits, including 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 safely and securely from the Associated Spring RAYMOND website, bringing an end-to-end customer experience to the Counterbalance Configurator Tool. By purchasing within the website, engineers can reduce the steps needed to source a product and complete a purchase, thus boosting productivity.

“With more than 12,000 gas struts and endless application variables, selecting the gas strut needed can be a daunting task," said Robert Thompson, global product manager. "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 campervan 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.
