Save Time and Money with Metrol’s Free Design Service

As a reliable gas strut manufacturer, we pride ourselves on our ability to design and manufacture product solutions for all your requirements.

Since our humble beginnings, we’ve developed and diversified into a global company with two strategic divisions; Metrol Tooling and Metrol Motion Control Division.

With the help of our Motion Control Division’s advanced design service, we can optimise fixing positions, identify early application issues and give you the most suitable end fittings and brackets for your products. In this article, we’ll explore how our customers can save time and money with Metrol's free Gas Strut design service.

A Fully Comprehensive Design Service

Despite the wide range of gas struts we have available through our website, new applications are being created all the time, that is why we pride ourselves on our ability to come up with custom solutions.

Our first-class design service is suitable for all manner of bespoke projects and can accommodate specific dimensions, such as a particular force or unique fitting requirements.

Our skilled design team have many years of experience and can help with advice on the best solution for various applications. When you choose Metrol, we can guarantee the best practice and longevity of our products.

We can rule out early design or application issues using the latest technology and offer advice on end fittings and materials, even if you are unsure of the exact specifications.

During the design stages of your project, we can provide BOM and fixing positions that can save you time and money in the long run — we always optimise fixing positions for the best results. We will always recommend the most suitable end fittings and brackets for your application.

Save Money with Automation

We have experience in small and large projects, including everything from DIY projects to OEM manufacturers.

Both our office and manufacturing provision has seen significant growth and investment in recent years. By installing efficient design tools and automated CNC machinery, we have the capability to create high-quality, innovative products at competitive prices.
