Adjustable Force Gas Spring

Our innovative, adjustable force gas spring- Vari-Lift is a game-changer, empowering you with the flexibility to optimize performance in different scenarios. Whether you're looking for enhanced control in aerospace, automotive, or industrial applications, the Vari-Lift has got you covered.

Unveiling the Versatility of Adjustable Force Gas Springs

If you’re seeking a gas spring that offers adaptability, responsiveness, and precise adjustability, look no further. Our adjustable force gas strut is the perfect solution for projects that demand flexibility and customization.

This remarkable product functions seamlessly in a wide range of situations, serving all the applications that our standard gas springs are known for. However, it offers a significant advantage by being easily customizable to suit your specific needs.

The versatility of adjustable gas springs shines during product prototyping. They provide the opportunity to fine-tune and achieve the exact force required for fixed-force production gas springs. This means you can optimize performance and ensure consistent results throughout your production process.

Furthermore, these gas springs are invaluable when dealing with products that have varying weights between models. By degassing, you can precisely adjust the strut to deliver the correct action when needed, regardless of the specific weight variation.

Unlocking the Secrets of Adjustable Force Gas Springs

Our wide range of gas struts, including standard, shrouded, multi-positional, and stainless-steel variants, are available with the VARI-LIFT feature. This allows you to easily customize the force to match your individual preferences.

At the manufacturing stage, these gas struts are charged to their maximum force. But here comes the exciting part. Using the tool we provide, you can gradually release gas through the VARI-LIFT valve located at the end of the tube. This step-by-step adjustment allows you to fine-tune the force precisely tailored to your application’s needs.

Once you’ve found the perfect force, we can measure the pressure level achieved. Armed with this knowledge, we’ll deliver production fixed force gas springs that are pre-set exactly as per your precise requirements. No guesswork, just precision engineering at its best.

Now, you may be wondering, why is this option so valuable? Well, while theoretical forces can indeed be calculated with impressive accuracy, there are certain factors that can’t be accounted for. Elements like hinge friction and the customer’s perceived speed of action are hard to predict. That’s where the Vari-Lift option truly shines, allowing you to fine-tune and optimize performance based on real-world conditions.
