SPIROL Introduces New Lightweight Aluminum Compression Limiters

March 24, 2015

Danielson, CT – SPIROL International Corporation is pleased to introduce the new Series CL600 and CL601 Aluminum Compression Limiters. Metal Compression Limiters provide "spot" reinforcement of the plastic assembly in high stress joints usually where two components are joined together with a bolt. The Compression Limiter absorbs the load when the bolt is tightened to its recommended value and isolates the plastic from excessive compressive loads ensuring that the joint remains intact throughout the life of the product.   

SPIROL offers several different standard types of Compression Limiters to meet specific application requirements and assembly methods. SPIROL is replacing the current line of machined brass Compression Limiters with this machined aluminum series due to the following advantages:

Lightweight:  Aluminum Compression Limiters are 1/3 the weight of brass Compression Limiters.
Strength:  Extensive testing has proven that the aluminum and brass Compression Limiters have similar compressive strength.
Lead Free:  Even though SPIROL's brass Compression Limiters meet the RoHS standard for lead content, the new aluminum Compression Limiters are lead free.

The attached data sheet details the specifications of the new Series CL600/CL601 Aluminum Compression Limiters.

In addition to the new Series CL600/CL601, SPIROL’s comprehensive line of Compression Limiters includes the split seam Series CL200/CL250 and Series CL350 and the molded-in Series CL500 designs.

The functions and total overall cost of the assembly vary drastically based on the type of Compression Limiter used in the application. SPIROL's Engineering team will help determine the most appropriate Compression Limiter based on the specific application requirements.

SPIROL Achieves Gold Level Status in Caterpillar Supplier Quality Excellence Process

September 30, 2014

Stow, OH, USA - SPIROL International Corporation is pleased to announce the recent achievement of gold level status in the Caterpillar Supplier Quality Excellence Process (SQEP) Recertification.

SQEP (Supplier Quality Excellence Process) is Caterpillar’s operational excellence initiative that recognizes a supplier’s commitment to meet and sustain high quality standards. SQEP incorporates industry proven quality tools and system requirements (ISO, PPM, APQP, PPAP, SPC, TQM, Delivery, etc.) that ensure suppliers achieve superior quality and deliver best-in-class performance.

The SQEP initiative is a critical aspect of SPIROL’s on-going dedication to being a preferred supplier to Caterpillar. Says Gregg Neidlinger, SPIROL’s Global Account Manager for Caterpillar, “Receiving the SQEP gold acknowledgement validates our global commitment to quality, service and support. From technical design and engineering support through delivery, our teams are fully engaged with CAT processes.”

Caterpillar’s SQEP certification recognizes their supplier’s dedication to providing excellence in quality, delivery and cost, and is only awarded to those who demonstrate such world-class performance on an ongoing basis. Each year, suppliers are evaluated with increasingly strict criteria for distinguishing outstanding supplier quality performance, exceptional service, capacity planning, and delivery performance. Caterpillar’s manufacturing standard combines industry-proven quality system and process management requirements from ISO/TS16949 with demonstrated results to ensure expected supplier capability and performance.

Caterpillar developed this program to place a renewed emphasis on supplier performance excellence. SPIROL’s Quality Manager, Anthony Canda, stated “This is a huge accomplishment and a direct result of all successes the SPIROL team has driven towards over the past year. Creating the CAT manufacturing cells, improving our part mark and oiling processes, managing on-time shipments, and providing top quality products and service are just a few of items that deserve to be celebrated.”
