CA2 to CA4

Deceleration of heavy loads

Energy capacity 3,600 Nm/Cycle to 126,500 Nm/Cycle
Stroke 50 mm to 406 mm

Powerful: The mass of these high volume absorbers are between 12.8 and 146 kg in weight. They complement ACE's product range of self-compensating shock absorbers. All models from this series are designed for applications where robustness and a large energy absorption are important.
The absorbers are designed specifically for each customer application with the aid of the ACE calculation program. The risk of crashes and incorrect settings are therefore prevented The CA models can absorb up to 126,500 Nm of energy and can be used in the area of effective loads between 700 kg and 326,000 kg. The combination of being extremely solid, absorbing high levels of energy and having a large damping range makes them invaluable.

These heavy duty self-compensating industrial shock absorbers are primarily used in heavy mechanical engineering e.g. on lift bridges and steel structures or for damping sluice systems.
