DICTATOR gas springs – optimal function requires precision work when determining which gas spring are needed

– AND when calculating their optimal fixing points free of charge

At the Frankfurt Airport the company Knebel Metalltechnik designed and built in baby diaper changing tables that can be folded. This space saving model also protects the diaper changing tables, as they are folded out only when needed.

This type of diaper changing tables, however, presents the manufacturer with special challenges: When opened, the flap may not just suddenly drop down and the closing has to be supported as otherwise it would require too much force to lift the flap. Here a gas spring is the ideal solution.

BUT: the very limited space and the fact that the gas springs have to disappear completely when the table is closed made it difficult to calculate the appropriate gas springs and their exact fixing points. Discrepancies of millimeters would have prevented the perfect functioning.

When not mounted precisely to the millimeter, the gas springs will not work properly.

The gas springs have been calculated so that they behave force-neutrally when the flap is open.

The gas springs keep the baby diaper changing flap safely in the closed position.

The co-workers in the technical customer service not only calculate the correct gas spring but also help with constructional advice.

The DICTATOR calculation programme allows to determine the exact fixing points, in close cooperation with the customer. Besides the gas spring, the fixing accessories required for each individual need are also determined.
