There is hardly an industry in which special brackets are not required at a certain point of a specific application, which are intended to act as a clamp, fastening or contact and must meet very individual criteria. Technical springs, special stamped parts, clamping springs and above all leaf springs often offer a perfect solution that in some cases was not even expected.
Perfect mounts: It all comes down to know-how!
One rightly expects a high degree of elasticity and, at the same time, a secure grip from the inner structure of the exterior mirror of a vehicle. Exactly defined tolerances of bent parts play a major role here. This also applies to the rain sensor in the exterior mirror, which has to switch on the windscreen wipers with absolute reliability even after hundreds of thousands of kilometers have been driven. A special bracket is responsible for this, i.e. a technical spring which, with its specific geometry, ensures that the sensor is attached in a stable and cushioning manner in order to "swallow" the countless bumps on the road. This is made possible by a great deal of know-how in the design of the spring geometry as well as by selected material and its appropriate surface treatment.
It's all in the design: technical mounts work in the strangest places
Who would have thought that a technical spring plays a part in every Grand Slam tournament? Tournament sports technology is probably an industry that would not easily be assigned this need for a specific mount. On the court it's all about a small technical spring as a problem solver. She holds a special sensor on the net, where it measures whether the tennis ball touches the net or not. The spring holds the sensor in place at the edge of the net and allows it to be released in seconds should the highly sensitive device have to be removed quickly due to the weather. Proof of the versatility of special mounts and an offer to you to confront Schaaf with any problem, no matter how complicated.
Secure mounting in medical technology
Particularly “ingenious” mounts also make an indispensable, efficient contribution to blood diagnostics. There are many different diameter pipettes and tubes for taking blood, but they all have to fit in a tray with the same size compartments. The pipette must neither wobble nor stand at an angle. This is possible with a special retaining spring that is tested 100,000 times in advance to meet the special requirements. You can see: Technical springs or certain stamped parts or retaining springs are reliable problem solvers even in the highly sensitive medical field.
The "smart" holder: A "piggy bank" among the solutions
Among the many good ideas that have proven themselves as problem solvers in the form of brackets, some stand out due to their outstanding economic advantages. With its "smart" implementation, a "spring-loaded bracket" not only saves the screwed assembly of the actual bracket, but also the element to be held. The corresponding components are simply "clipped" together, which not only eliminates the costs, but also the effort of usually complicated assembly using screws.
Tell me what you need and I'll tell you which mount...
The above examples are just a few of many that show that it is worthwhile in every industry to think outside the box of previous solution providers. Wherever a mount is involved that is to be associated with a wide variety of functions such as clamping, connecting, fastening, closing, securing or contacts, technical springs offer surprisingly cost-effective, sustainable and convincing solutions. As a versatile manufacturer, Schaaf can already help you in the planning phase. The experience gained from hundreds of special brackets for a wide variety of industries releases creative synergies that retain advantages over the long term.
