Miniature Shock Absorbers

Optimizing PET stretch blow machines

Energy capacity 500 in-lbs/Cycle
Stroke 0.68 in to 0.74 in

Optimizing PET stretch blow machines: MAXIMACE, the new PET shock absorbers from ACE, shine with longer service life

compared to previous solutions and an operating time of over 20 million strokes.

They work simply and faster than other shock absorbers and are stronger at the same time. As a result, downtime is reduced and system performance and production volume are increased. This is accomplished by numerous details such as innovative aluminium outer housings for better heat dissipation, improved high temperature seals (up to approx. 225°F), a diaphragm accumulator for faster cycle times and a larger damper chamber which is filled with food-grade oil. All of this significantly contributes to reduced wear and extended service life.

These self-adjusting, specialized shock absorbers stand out in their field of PET container production due to their compactness and distinctively colored aluminium bodies.
