Industrial Shock Absorbers

High energy absorption and progressive adjustment

Energy capacity 170 Nm/cycle
Stroke 23.2 mm

Adjustable and unique: These industrial shock absorbers from ACE, which can be precisely adjusted both at the front and rear, also contribute towards the success of the MAGNUM range. Equipped with excellent sealing technology, an annealed guide bearing and integrated positive stop, they are robust and durable.

These dampers absorb 50 % more energy than their predecessors but are built even more compactly. The larger range of effective loads also opens up various options in design and assembly. This makes the ML range especially suitable for effective loads of 300 kg to 500,000 kg. Where work is done with changing application data and wherever flexibility is required, they make the best option.

Damping medium Automatic Transmission Fluid (ATF)


A noise reduction of 3 dB to 7 dB is possible when using the special impact button (PP). For emergency use only applications and for continous use (with additional cooling) it is sometimes 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, mounting inside air cylinders or other special options are available on request.

Application Examples

MA/ML33-64 – MAGNUM helps in the fight against people not buckling up
MA/ML33-64 – MAGNUM helps in the fight against people not buckling up
The Central-Hessian police department has developed an accident simulator with the help of ACE Stoßdämpfer GmbH aimed at significantly increasing the number of road traffic seatbelt wearers. The mobile simulator demonstrates strikingly that the smallest impact velocities lead to enormous forces, even when wearing seat belts, and can cause serious injuries when not. Adjustable MAGNUM type ...
ML33-64 - Precision Telescope
ML33-64 - Precision Telescope
ACE industrial shock absorbers offer safety to spare for swiveling or braking of large telescope. The optical system of this telescope for special observations is moveable in two space coordinates. The structure in which the telescope is mounted weighs 15,000 kg and consists of a turntable with drives and two wheel disks rotating on bearings. It enables a rotation by ±90° from horizon to ...

MA/ML33-64 - Noble Yachts
Fenders protect ships from collision damage during berthing manoeuvres. So that yachts can also survive soft and ungentle touches with other boats or jetties, ACE has worked with a customer to design ideally suited, adjustable stainless steel versions of MAGNUM industrial shock absorbers MA/ML and bring them to series production readiness. The previous solution was discoloured by penetrating ...
