The solution to a lack of space: If standard push type gas springs cannot be used due to a lack of space, ACES' industrial pull type gas springs come into their own. They work in the opposite way to standard push type gas springs. The piston rod is retracted when the cylinder is unloaded. The gas pressure in the cylinder draws the piston rod in.

ACE pull type gas springs offer the maximum service life thanks to the solid chrome-plated piston rod and an integrated sliding bearing. The maintenance-free and ready-to-install products are available in body diameters of 15 mm to 40 mm as well as forces from 40 N to 5,000 N and are available from stock with valve and large selection of accessories. The traction force can be subsequently adjusted using the valve.

GZ-15-40 - Medical Pump Testing
GZ-15-40 - Medical Pump Testing
Averna needed to create an automated control system with specific and precise properties to speed up medical pump testing. The testing unit also needed a functionality that would allow it to be elevated for sterilization and cleaning beneath the unit. Motion control while lifting and lowering to prevent damage and a feature that would increase ease of use and safety for the operator were ...
