Taking the guesswork out of gas springs
18 February 2008
Jet Press is promising to make expert guidance part of the service after adding British-made Camloc gas springs to its product range. The company has begun supplying these components, while offering technical advice to ensure customers order the correct spring.
Gas springs are ideal for lifting, holding, counterbalancing and supporting weight and are used right across both commercial and consumer markets, most commonly in car boots or hatchbacks. They are also used in windows and access panels, in kitchen cabinets, on marine boat seating and even within vending equipment.
This wide range of applications is reflected in the different sizes and formats that the springs, which are made in Leicester by ArvinMeritor, can be supplied.
The standard lift – the Swift & Sure – provides a controlled rate of movement for applications such as hatch covers and machine guards and can bear loads of up to 350kg.
Econoloc gas springs have an integral additional safety shroud to protect the user in the unlikely event of failure in critical lift-assist operation in heavy duty operation, such as trucks, construction machinery, switch gear and agricultural equipment.
The Stop and Stay springs enable multi-position holding of a counter-balanced weight, such as sun bed and printer canopies, monitor arms, acoustic hoods and delicatessen counters.
For applications where the theoretical forces may be incorrect, Vari-lift gas springs can be easily altered by releasing the gas while the spring is in position. Spring weight varies from 5kg to 250kg.
All the springs can be matched with a wide range of end connectors, such as ball joints, ball cups and eyes, and come in a range of different materials, including nylon, steel, stainless steel and zinc.
