Understanding the importance of answering commonly asked industry questions regarding gas springs and dampers, we have teamed up with numerous publications across engineering and manufacturing to provide high-quality content to the discerning design engineer.
This continuing our mission to be more than just a manufacturer of gas springs and dampers.
Often finding the same questions regarding gas springs, dampers and motion control solutions being asked, we have teamed up with leading publications to put our content answering these questions in front of design engineers world-wide.
To begin with, we have compiled four whitepapers. The first of these whitepapers has been written as a guide to understanding the basics of gas spring application; providing the reader a basic understanding of the workings and terminology used when specifying gas springs and dampers. This whitepaper also describes the differences orientation and damping expected dependent on the mounting position chosen.
The following three whitepapers have been written by engineers, for engineers. These technical whitepapers include a two-part technical overview, discussing ‘forces’, ‘effect of rod diameter’, ‘effect of rod insertion’ and ‘effects and limits of temperature on gas springs’ – with the second of the technical overviews covering ‘damping’, ‘metering and extension speeds’, ‘friction and P1 – P4 charts’, ‘force and force ratios’ and ‘oil levels’.
Following on from our technical overview guides, Technical Director Matt Warne has provided an in-depth technical whitepaper on gas spring mounting. This whitepaper covers a wide variety of areas including ‘handling forces’, ‘mounting positions and gas spring sizing’, ‘mounting orientations’, ‘mounting – crossover, self-rise and self-close’, ‘mounting – practical application’ and ‘mounting – dampers’.
