Getting our work done is our number one priority in our jobs but doing it fast and efficiently while producing the best quality of work is what we really strive for. With our world evolving day by day and with the development of new machinery, we have had to develop new products and tools to adapt to this new lifestyle.
Although there is concern about machinery and robots taking over our jobs in the future, a lot of jobs still need hands-on human inter- action. In order to adapt to the ever-changing industry, Sugatsune’s team of engineers strive to come up with designs using Motion Design Technology, meaning New Motions Designed with Technology. The five motions developed in Motion Design Technology include soft-close, free-stop, power assist, click and unique motion. All of these motions were developed with the intent to provide convenience and satisfaction to people.
As the first company to introduce soft-close mechanisms, these products are developed to reduce slamming and noise, a solution to a problem that you may have not been aware of but also probably something you can’t live without. Another solution is lift-assist technolog
y which was developed for ease of opening heavy or hard to reach lids. Whether you work in the medical field or in manufacturing lid supports can be used on a variety of applications.
What sets our products apart from competitors is the design, quality and unique function of each. Some of Sugatsune’s lid supports are spring functioning to help lift heavy lids with no gas required. What’s good about our spring-loaded lid stays compared to gas spring m
echanisms? Well, for one they don’t take up as much space so you can attach them to just about any application. Another being since gas springs contain both gas and liquid, there is a probability of liquid leaking from the part which could potentially lead to damage on your equipment.
Our balance adjustable spring-loaded lid stay S-ATJ, contains a spring mechanism that assists in lifting doors and holds in any open position. The balance adjustment allows for use in a wider range of lids and can be installed individually or in pairs. Just imagine trying to open a heavy tool box without a free arm, you put yourself at risk of hurting yourself or possibly dropping the armful of items on your feet. Our S-ATJ lid stays are designed so you don’t need a strong arm to open lids but rather just a guide of your finger.
