Connecticut Spring & Stamping (CSS), a manufacturer of precision parts for the aerospace, medical, firearms and defence industries worldwide, announces its wide range of springs and stampings for the electronics industry. CSS has a 40-year history of working as a trusted partner with major electronics manufacturers, from collaborating in product development and prototyping through high- and low-volume manufacturing. Parts consignment at customer warehouses is offered to decrease the costs of carrying parts inventory.
CSS’s history goes back to its early development of a design for stamped D-shells still used in computer connectors. The company manufactures and assembles stampings and springs used in circuit breakers, sensors, controls and computer connectors, including pressure release valves, spring regulators, plunger return springs, as well as wire forms, clutch springs, and actuator and backup rings. Major customers include General Electric Corporation, TE Connectivity (Tyco), Eaton Corporation (Cutler-Hammer) and Parker Hannifin Corporation.
Known for its extremely rapid turnaround time capabilities, CSS works in conjunction with customers from product development and prototyping and continuing on through high volume production. For one recent innovative circuit breaker application designed for areas where space is at a premium and the ability to upgrade electrical systems is critical, CSS consulted on the wire sizes, loads and spring designs, and then provided prototypes and engineering samples on a fast-track basis to meet the customer’s product launch timetable. With CSS’s consignment program, parts are manufactured and shipped directly to a customer’s warehouse and the customer is not invoiced until the parts are actually used.
“CSS specializes in collaborating with electronics customers to achieve their design objectives,” said Steve Dicke, vice president of sales and marketing at CSS (www.ctspring.com). “We are experts in assisting our customers with part design for manufacturability and consistency.”
