Heavy Industrial Shock Absorbers

Deceleration of heavy loads and progressive adjustment

Energy capacity 15,800 Nm/Cycle to 44,000 Nm/Cycle
Stroke 127 mm to 305 mm

Strong and adjustable: Also in ACE's range of units ares heavy duty industrial shock absorbers, which can be adjusted. The models from the A1 1/2 to A3 range, which weigh between 7.55 kg and 48 kg, are extremely robust, ready-to-install hydraulic machine elements with impressively high energy absorption levels and a wide range of damping rates.

Their special aspect is the flexibility,as all the absorbers can be adjusted using a socket on the absorber base and be perfectly adapted to the required data. The A models cover a range of effective loads from 0.3 kg to 204,000 kg and can absorb up to 44,000 Nm energy.

These heavy duty, adjustable ACE industrial shock absorbers are the first choice in heavy duty applications and generally in heavy mechanical engineering when the usage data has not been exactly determined.

For emergency use only applications and for continous use it is possible to exceed the published max. capacity ratings. In this case, please consult ACE.

Safety information

External materials in the surrounding area can attack the seal components and lead to a shorter service life. Please contact ACE for appropriate solution suggestions. Do not paint the shock absorbers due to heat emission.

On request

Special oils, nickel-plated, increased corrosion protection or other special options are available on request.
