MC225M

Exceptionaly high endurance and with the lowest resetting force

Self-Compensating, Rolling Diaphragm Technology
Energy capacity 360 in-lbs/Cycle
Stroke 0.50 in

Tried-and-tested and durable: with a hermetically sealed rolling diaphragm in each absorber, the MC150 to MC600 product family is suitable for an exceptionally high lifetime of use with up to 25 million cycles. The rolling diaphragm technology perfected by ACE ensures complete separation of the damping fluid from the surrounding air. This makes direct installation in a pressure chamber, e.g. as end stop damping, in pneumatic cylinders up to approx. 100 psi (7 bar) possible.
The rolling diaphragm delivers very low return forces for these maintenance-free, ready-to-install absorbers. An integrated positive stop and progressive energy capacities, with a wide range of effective weight, make these miniature shock absorbers a winner. Furthermore, the use of a side load adapter allows impact angles of up to 25°. Stainless steel options are available for greater environmental compatibility. Self-compensating shock absorbers react to changing energy conditions, without adjustment.

These self compensating miniature shock absorbers are capable of universal mounting even inside a cylinder. These shocks are ideal for use in multitude of applications including material handling equipment, packaging equipment, medium robotics and machine tools.

Application Examples

MC150-600 - End positions of driving safety training
MC150-600 - End positions of driving safety training
In the case of driving safety training, swinging flags are used to simulate the sudden appearance of obstacles. If the driver reacts too slowly, the flags are swung just as quickly away to avoid damage to the vehicle. In order to protect the end positions of this safety system during to and fro motion, ACE miniature shock absorbers of the type MC225EUMH2 are installed. They come with a special ...
