Camloc – The Home of Motion Control

At Camloc Motion Control Limited, over the last 25 years from our base in Leicester, UK, we have built an enviable reputation for designing and manufacturing quality engineered solutions in movement control.

We design and produce high-end gas struts and gas springs for industrial machinery – providing motion control mechanisms for vehicles, right through to portable objects required for applications within numerous industrial, engineering and domestic settings.

For more than a quarter of a century, our team of technical engineers has designed and manufactured gas springs, dampers, gas struts and other motion control parts, including our very own Vari-Lift, to ensure the safe and reliable manoeuvrability of equipment that requires anything from lowering and counterbalancing weights, right through to lifting.

Typically incorporated by engineers designing parts which need controlled movement, our springs contain pressurised nitrogen gas and oil which ensures the seamless movement of the parts. We offer a vast selection of gas springs for a range of applications including, but not limited to, construction and agricultural machinery, sunbeds and stair-lifts – all with many benefits including compact design, long-life and complete safety – supporting moving parts weighing anything from just a few kilograms up to half a tonne.

These include our Swift & Sure, Stop & Stay, Econoloc and Blocklift which between them can be applied to lock motion, be used to multi-position parts as well as to prevent injury.

Our specialist range of gas springs include the Vari-Lift and stainless steel gas springs, available in a variety of sizes and with complete adjustability. The stainless steel gas springs prove most popular among industries requiring increased corrosion resistance. And, our Hydraulic System is the perfect solution for tail lifts or medical applications where electro-hydraulic lifting is required.

Ensuring we cater for all movement requirements, we also manufacture a range of dampers, end fittings and mounting brackets to guarantee easy-to-assemble fixing options for any gas spring applications. With our wealth of experience and testing capabilities, we have the flexibility and manufacturing resources to react quickly to engineers’ demands. We even cover velocity controls and momentum change, meaning you will not need to go anywhere else for your motion control essentials.

Here at Camloc Motion Control, we pride ourselves on the fact that our excellent team of technical design engineers can offer a bespoke design service, so that when you purchase from us, we are able to work closely with you to design the gas spring you want. With the use of the latest CAD technology we can reassure you that if we don’t sell something to fit your requirements, we can work efficiently to produce it.

If you would like more information on Camloc or if you have any questions regarding gas springs, please don’t hesitate to contact our team of technical specialists who will be happy to assist you.

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.
