We Have Partnered with the University of Bristol for an Innovative R&D Project
We are currently participating in an exciting research and development project working with the University of Bristol.
Funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) the project is being lead by Dr Jason Zheng Jiang, a lecturer in dynamics and control from the university’s Department of Mechanical Engineering. It focuses on creating an improved damper design in order to maximise its performance capabilities.
“Working closely with Camloc Motion Control as the experts in product design and manufacturing, our overall aim is to improve specialist design techniques and constitute a major step towards application in multiple industrial sectors – including road and rail transportation, civil engineering and aerospace engineering,” explains Dr Zheng Jiang.
Along with other commercial partners, we will be actively involved in the development – leading on prototype manufacture – and company Director Matt Warne is pleased with the progress made so far.
“This is an incredibly exciting piece of work and we are honoured to collaborate with Dr Zheng Jiang and such a prestigious university,” says Matt. “Although still early days, this may well lead to significant improvements in the UK’s capability for advanced design, which will enable our high-end manufacturing industry to maintain its competitive edge in the future, so for Camloc to play such a pivotal role is hugely satisfying for the whole business.”
How do gas struts work?
At Camloc Motion Control, we design and manufacture a wide range of engineered gas springs, struts and damper solutions to fit your requirements. Whether your project involves, for example, the door of a specialist vehicle or the hidden mechanisms of an operating table, our solutions will help you achieve the range of motion your application requires to work properly.
How to get the most out of your gas strut
At Camloc Motion Control, we’re proud to produce high-quality gas struts and dampers that contribute to manufacturing success in a variety of industries, from medical to aerospace. However, as a manufacturer, we’re heavily investing in the durability, strength and manoeuvrability of our products when they’ve left our factories, which is why we want to share how you can get the most out of your gas struts, improve their lifespan and quickly identify any warning signs that need attention.
How you choose the right gas strut for you and your product
At Camloc Motion Control, we understand that for every kind of project, there is a gas strut that can help you to lift, lower and control. However, there are so many different kinds to choose from. How do you know which type of gas strut you need? If you’re confused by which of our products is right for you, this blog post will help to guide your selection, if you’re still unsure you can visit our products page for each one, or alternatively contact one of our experts.
