Hyson designed and manufactured the first pneumatic die cylinder in 1939. From that auspicious start, we have become a world leader in nitrogen gas systems, introducing the first nitrogen gas spring in 1964. Nitrogen gas springs and manifold 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.
Hyson has continued its innovative ways, expanding the technology of force to include the Dyna-A-Cam series of cams and the DRAC series of controllable systems, engineered for metal stamping operations that require a pad delay. In 1985, Hyson introduced the high performance Tanker series of gas springs that features dynamic lubrication for long service life under less than ideal environments. This series continues to evolve, most recently with the debut of the Tanker T and Tanker S, that provide high force in short heights with extended stroke lengths to 225mm.
In 2007, Hyson expanded its line with the Di-Dro Advanced Forming System, a hydraulic manifold that combines high force in a small space, and provides controllable pad delay if required. Since the acquisition, Hyson engineers have enhanced the product to include both manifold and hose systems with maximum pressure of 4,000psi.
Customers from a wide variety of industries including automotive, appliance, HVAC, electronics, can making, and sheet metal forming, partner with Hyson because they can count on innovated solutions that contribute to long-running, trouble-free operations. Hyson’s AS9100C ISO 9001-2008 and PED certifications attest to their ongoing commitment to the highest standards of quality.
Hyson is backed by the financial strength and long history of Barnes Group, Inc., a technology based diversified manufacturer of engineered products and systems generating superior value for our customers and shareholders, through an energized and passionate workforce.
