Expertise in spring design
Applied science for the industry
STRAIN offers CGR’s industrial clients leading-edge R&D capacity which is unique in its genre. Moreover, the applied research programs carried out for multiple industrial applications are leading to numerous scientific publications. An award-winning new calculus for anticipating spring characteristics is among the most prominent outcomes. Other advanced research projects include the additive manufacturing of springs, the prevention of fatigue and breakdown, the optimization of the end coils and the (environmentally beneficial) reduction of overall spring mass.
