Viscoelastic Shock Absorbers
VS

Simple Design – High reliability

Energy capacity 8,850 in-lbs/Cycle to 8,850,750 in-lbs/Cycle
Stroke 0.47 in to 51.18 in

The self-adjusting Viscoelastic Shock Absorbers are designed on the principals of hydrostatic compression to combine the funtions of a shock absorber and a spring. The advantages are a high damping coefficient, a low sensitivity to temperature changes and increased security by integrated static preload.

Viscoelastic shock absorbers are being used across a wide range of applications within heavy industry. Examples include, Material Handling, Rolling Mills, Defense, Waterways and Paper production.
