Hyson Products

Hyson Products developed and manufactured the first pneumatic die cylinder in 1939. From that auspicious start, Hyson Products has become a world leader in nitrogen gas systems. Nitrogen gas springs and manifold pressure systems, integral to metal forming operations, are used to control the flow of material during part formation, and to complement the action of the press or die.

Traditionally die designers and builders relied on resistive devices such as air springs, air cushions, and mechanical coil springs. These devices, while adequate in some ways, were often associated with poor part quality and high costs. In 1964, engineers at Hyson Products addressed these issues by producing an adjustable resistive device that was compact in size and provided high force over long press strokes without high force build-up ---- the first nitrogen gas spring.

Hyson Products continues its innovative ways. We expanded the technology of force to develop the Dyne-A-Cam® Series of cams as well as the DRAC® and DRAC®2 controllable systems, engineered for metal stamping operations in which a delayed return is required. In 1985, we introduced the high performance, bore seal Tanker® Series of gas springs that feature dynamic lubrication for long service life. This series continues to evolve, most recently in 2007 with the debut of the Tanker®T and Tanker®S that provide high force in short heights, with stroke lengths to 225 mm.

Customers from a wide variety of industries including automotive, electronics, appliance, can making, and sheet metal forming, choose Hyson Products because they can count on high quality products that contribute to long-running, trouble-free operations. Our ISO 9001-2000 and PED certifications attest to our continuing commitment to the highest standards of quality.

Worldwide sales and service is provided through field sales engineers and a distributor network with locations in all major markets.
