Hydraulic Damping with Cam-Shoc
Christmas has come early this year with the arrival of yet another new addition to our range of motion control solutions here at Camloc, the Cam-Shoc.
Having been engineered to absorb, meter and control kinetic energy, these self-contained, maintenance-free, hydraulic damping units work via movements of the piston through oil, creating the damping-like characteristic.
Where you are looking to arrest or control various applications of various weights from cabinets to specialist blast mitigation solutions on military vehicles. These units, available in either stainless steel or carbon steel provide the reliable damping solution from -40oc to +100oc.
Specifically designed to influence and control movement across a variety of industrial applications, these hydraulic damping units can be used for velocity, deceleration and momentum changes.
With various sizing, extension and compression options available, the Cam-Shoc is designed to complement your specific damping and mounting requirements. Choose between:
- Standard oil-filled dampers (or with separator piston)
- Through dampers
- Gassed emulsion filled dampers (or with separate piston)
- Blast mitigation dampers (STANAG 4569 for the protection of logistic and light armoured vehicles)
When selecting the right hydraulic damping solution for your purposes, Camloc staff will work closely with you to help you select the most appropriate damper. We can even custom-design units using CAD/CAE techniques to create proto-types ready to be tested typically within just 14 days.
No two motion control solutions are the same which is why Camloc have chosen to make it simple, quick and more effective than ever with our Cam-Shoc hydraulic damping range.

How do gas struts work?
At Camloc Motion Control, we design and manufacture a wide range of engineered gas springs, struts and damper solutions to fit your requirements. Whether your project involves, for example, the door of a specialist vehicle or the hidden mechanisms of an operating table, our solutions will help you achieve the range of motion your application requires to work properly.
How to get the most out of your gas strut
At Camloc Motion Control, we’re proud to produce high-quality gas struts and dampers that contribute to manufacturing success in a variety of industries, from medical to aerospace. However, as a manufacturer, we’re heavily investing in the durability, strength and manoeuvrability of our products when they’ve left our factories, which is why we want to share how you can get the most out of your gas struts, improve their lifespan and quickly identify any warning signs that need attention.
How you choose the right gas strut for you and your product
At Camloc Motion Control, we understand that for every kind of project, there is a gas strut that can help you to lift, lower and control. However, there are so many different kinds to choose from. How do you know which type of gas strut you need? If you’re confused by which of our products is right for you, this blog post will help to guide your selection, if you’re still unsure you can visit our products page for each one, or alternatively contact one of our experts.
