  • Shock Absorbers
    of the cylinder. But energy-absorbing capacity depends on the size of the shock absorber and the method of returning the piston to its rest position. Spring-return shock absorbers are more compact and convenient than external-accumulator models, but do not have as much energy capacity. Accumulator shock
  • Genesis of a Hydraulic Shock Absorber
    Hydraulic shock absorbers decelerate loads by converting their kinetic energy into heat, then dissipating that heat into the atmosphere. Typically, a load contacts and strokes a piston to displace oil inside the shock absorber and force it through engineering orifices. After the load is removed
  • Reinventing the Industrial Shock Absorber
    it on the machine for best performance. But ever since William J. Chorkey patented the first adjustable industrial shock absorber in 1963, there have been relatively few major innovations. One was the introduction of self-compensating shock absorbers in the 1970s. These devices operate across a relatively
  • Shock Absorber Increases Capacities
    In traditional industrial shock absorbers, size and power are dependent on piston diameter, which is limited by the wall thickness of the outer and inner tubes. Enginners at ACE Controls Inc., Farmington, Mich., redesigned the shock absorber's internal structure, creating a larger area for teh

    shock absorber in 1963, there have been relatively few major innovations. One was the introduction of self-compensating shock absorbers in the 1970s. These devices operate across a relatively wide range of input conditions without the need for adjustment. Compared with adjustable shocks, however

  • Better, Not Bigger, Shock Absorbers
    Designers at ACE Controls Inc., Farmington, Mich., had their work cut out for them - design an industrial shock absorber with a larger-bore piston to absorb more energy, but keep the unit size the same. And, make it adjustable from both the front and rear. "This is equivalent to asking automotive
  • Energy - The Main Consideration for a Shock Absorber
    The main consideration for shock absorber configurations. Kinetic energy dictates the size requirement when the Airpot unit is to be used in the shock absorber (snubber) configuration. Maximum energy handling capability is simply a function of the volume of air that is forced out of the dashpot
  • Pressure Balancing Shock Absorbers for Better Performance
    The pressure balancing of shock absorbers is a new method of optimizing a particular damper set-up for a particular track or target velocity to reduce hysteresis and improve grip while still avoiding cavitation. Poor response of a damper can be equated to a lag in pressure across the main piston
  • Miniature Shock Absorbers Decelerate Big Loads at Low Speeds
    A line of miniature shock absorbers decelerates heavy loads moving at low velocities, offering increased energy per cycle. The SC2 Heavyweight II Series from ACE Controls Inc., Farmington Hills, Mich., delivers up to 950% of the effective weight capacity of conventional shocks. The design combines
