Industrial Gas Springs – Push Type
GS-12-30

Individual stroke length and extension forces

Valve Technology
Extension force max. 180 N
Stroke 30 mm

Universal and tailor made: ACE industrial gas push type springs of the NEWTONLINE family offer perfect support of muscle power with forces from 10 N to 13,000 N with body diameter of 8 mm to 70 mm. With their high quality features the NEWTONLINE gas springs form the industry standard. These durable and sealed systems are ready for installation, maintenance-free and filled with pressurised nitrogen gas.

They are supplied filled according to individual customer pressure requirements and maybe adjusted later by use of the inbuilt valve. The free of charge ACE calculation service designs the gas springs with mounting points specifically for the particular application. A variety of additional components makes assembly even easier and allows universal application of the gas springs.
