Individual stroke length and extension forces

Valve Technology
Extension force 9 lbs to 90 lbs (compressed up to 126 lbs)
Stroke 0.79 in to 7.87 in

Universal and tailor made: ACE industrial gas springs offer perfect support of muscle power with forces from 2 to 2,923 lbs. (10 to 13,000 N) with body diameter of 0.31" to 2.76" (8 to 70 mm). These durable and sealed systems are ready for installation, maintenance-free and filled with pressurized nitrogen gas.

They are filled according to individual customer pressure requirements and may be adjusted later by use of a built-in valve. ACE provides free calculation support and designs the gas springs with mounting points specifically for the particular application. A variety of accessories makes assembly even easier and allows universal application of the gas springs.

ACE industrial gas push type springs are used on covers, lids, or other components. They are used in industrial applications, automation and machine building, medical technology as well as in the electronics, automobile and furniture industries.

Application Examples

GS8-70  Maintenance work on harvesting machines
GS8-70 Maintenance work on harvesting machines
ACE industrial gas springs prevent injuries during maintenance work on harvesting machines. The blades of corn pickers are arranged under plastic hoods, which assure proper material flow within the machine. For maintenance purposes, the hoods, weighing about 15 lbs, must be lifted up. To protect maintenance personnel from injury by falling hoods, they are kept in the open position by ...

GS8-70 mini-incubator
ACE industrial gas springs (push type) protect samples in an incubator, which is used for chemical and biochemical applications. The plexiglass hood, under which may be found valuable laboratory goods, is securely held open by two maintenance-free, ready-to-install ACE industrial gas springs (push type) of the type GS-12-60-AA-X. With an end-position damping of 0.20 in and an extension force ...
GS8-70 Rescue Helicopter
GS8-70 Rescue Helicopter
ACE industrial gas springs make opening and closing doors of rescue helicopters easier. The maintenance-free, sealed systems are installed in the access doors of helicopters of the EC 135. There, they allow the crew to enter or exit the helicopter quickly, thus contributing to enhanced safety. The GS-19-300 gas springs provide a defined retraction speed and secure engagement of the door lock. ...
GS-8-70 Industrial gas spring in dream role on wooden gate
GS-8-70 Industrial gas spring in dream role on wooden gate
Industrial gas springs from ACE are used to ensure a heavy wooden gate can be driven easily over uneven ground in front of a shelter for asylum seekers. Models of the type GS-40-200 have been integrated into the metal supports of the gate rollers for this. In fact, the gas springs are significantly over-dimensioned for the task as compensating elements. Thanks to the ACE valve technology, ...

GS-8-70 Better acceleration with ACE gas springs
The versatility of industrial gas springs is demonstrated through their use in a racing car. Installed on the accelerator, they compensate disruptive pedal movements through the backflow of nitrogen when the throttle valve is opened. This compensation is achieved through the gas spring building up slight counter pressure. The driver’s foot is stabilized in critical situations and can hold ...
