GST-40 Tandem

Optimised dual force for heavy flaps and wide angle applications

Valve Technology
Force range 300 N to 5,000 N
Stroke 50 mm to 400 mm

Cover two differing force ranges: Tandem push type gas springs by ACE are maintenance-free and ready-to-install with two pressure tubes with different extension forces and progression curves. With this type of gas spring you cover the different force ranges between the start and end of an application. These force ranges are adjusted and compliment each other, designed individually for the relevant application by the free of charge ACE calculation service, then are specifically manufactured adjusted precisely to the required dynamics of the application.

The customer specific systems, for which there are many fitting parts, are specifically suitable for heavy loads with large opening angle and can also be delivered in stainless steel versions.

Tandem push type gas springs from ACE are used in industrial applications such as in mechanical engineering, in the automobile, electronics and furniture industries, but also in medical technology as well as for service hatches.

Application Examples

GST28-40 Lifting of heavy flaps
GST28-40 Lifting of heavy flaps
Underground distribution systems are visually advantageous. To facilitate their servicing, the heavy covers of the often large supply systems are brought back to the surface with the help of ACE industrial tandem gas springs (push type). This is quite easily achieved thanks to the use of two pressure pipes, the result of which is two different force ranges. This means fitters must not endure ...

GST28-40 Lifting of very heavy flaps
Industrial gas springs add support to the muscular strength of the user when opening doors, hoods and covers. Standard models however, which are used for example on vehicle hoods and tailgates, are limited by the functional principle on which they are based. ACE provides industrial tandem gas springs (push type) for large and above all heavy elements, which need to be moved and joined ...
