Individual stroke length and extension forces

Valve Technology
Extension force max. 360 lbs
Stroke 19.69 inch

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.

Application Examples

GS-8-70 - Weatherscape™ Team Shelter
GS-8-70 - Weatherscape™ Team Shelter
The Weatherscape™ Team Shelter, created by Sportsfield, is designed to have a collapsible roof that can be lowered to the ground when not in use. The unique parameters of this design made it difficult to determine the needed spring force and ideal placement for the mounting of the gas spring. Sportsfield wanted the roof panel to be able to be lifted and lowered by a single user, the panel ...
GS-8-70 - Maintenance work on harvesting machines
GS-8-70 - 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 ...
GS-8-70 - Mini-incubator
GS-8-70 - 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 ...
GS-8-70 - Rescue Helicopter
GS-8-70 - 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 Drum bell securely in position
GS-8-70 Drum bell securely in position
In order to process demanding potting materials in drum stirring stations for casting resin, which runs reliably in 200-liter drums; the container needs to be completely sealed. In this application, a bell is driven over the respective drum, and is in the topmost position when the station is being loaded; in the event of a pneumatic failure, the entire lifting unit may drop suddenly, which ...
GS-8-70 Better acceleration with ACE gas springs
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 ...
GS-8-70 Ski-jumping ramp
GS-8-70 Ski-jumping ramp
The addition of two ACE industrial GS-22-200-EE push type gas springs make training on a ski jumping ramp much easier. With their help, moving mobile launch bars is child’s play. Located at the starting tower, the launch bars are a necessary part of the ski jump. The bars regulate the flight curve by adjusting launch speed and length, which constantly changes due to different performance ...
GS-8-70 Transformer cores
GS-8-70 Transformer cores
When winding a transformer core with resin tape, oval transformer legs can potentially cause a drop in tension. The tension of the tape is extremely important. To make sure the sheets in the transformer do not move even a millimeter during winding, a brake system with GS-19-150-EE push type gas springs are used. Thanks to its 6 in travel distance serving as a back-up, tape tension is kept ...
