It gives the reader an understanding of the fundamental workings and terminology used when specifying gas springs. This paper provides the knowledge that is useful in later technical papers that deal with guidelines for different mounting positions on applications. This further helps with understanding the differences in orientation and damping effects that are to be expected based upon the chosen mounting position.
Whitepaper 1 – Understanding the basics of a gas strut
In the first of our series of whitepapers, we provide an explanation of what a gas strut is, its component parts, how they are constructed and operated.
Fixed Force Compression Gas Struts
Our most popular compression gas strut is the fixed force ‘Swift and Sure’ range. It is an extremely versatile product offering a solution for a range of engineering situations. This gas strut is available in both carbon and stainless steel, in an extensive range of sizes, and end fittings for a wide variety of applications.
Adjustable Force Gas Strut
Our adjustable force gas strut- Vari-Lift can be set to meet your exact requirements in a wide range of situations. The key benefit of this type of gas strut is that the force adjustments can be made with the gas strut fitted to the application, saving you both time and effort.
