Gas springs are used wherever masses are raised or lowered in a controlled manner without great effort. They can be used as opening and holding devices for furniture, in vehicles, in mechanical engineering, in sports, leisure and household appliances, in medical technology and many other areas of the industrial and private sectors.
Mode of Action:
The spring force results from Internal pressure (max. 160 bar unencumbered) inside of the cylinder (filled with nitrogen).
In unencumbered state the piston rod of a gas pressure spring is always lowered. By insert of the piston rod the volume inside the cylinder decrease and the gas becomes compressed. The result is force increase (progression) of the gas spring dependent on diameter/ volume of the piston rod and diameter/ volume of the cylinder.
Addition the gas spring contains an oil filling for the lubrication and end position dampening.
