Industrial Shock Absorbers

High energy absorption and robust design

Energy capacity 370 Nm/Cycle to 1,130 Nm/Cycle
Stroke 23.1 mm to 73.9 mm

The latest damper technology: The combination of the latest sealing technology, annealed guide bearing and integrated positiv stop make these self-compensating shock absorbers from ACE'S MAGNUM range so successful. After all, users benefit from the longer service life of the products, even in the most difficult environments. A continuous outer thread and extensive accessories make their contribution to the success story of the MC33 to MC64.

High energy absorption in a compact design and a wide damping range lead to huge advantages in practice. Alongside generally more compact designs, these small yet very powerful absorbers enable full use of the machine's performance.

These self-compensating industrial shock absorbers are used in all areas of mechanical engineering – especially in automation and for gantries.

Damping medium Automatic Transmission Fluid (ATF)


A noise reduction of 3 dB to 7 dB is possible when using the special impact button (PP). For emergency use only applications and for continous use (with additional cooling) it is sometimes possible to exceed the published max. capacity ratings. In this case, please consult ACE.

Safety information

External materials in the surrounding area can attack the seal components and lead to a shorter service life. Please contact ACE for appropriate solution suggestions. Do not paint the shock absorbers due to heat emission.

On request

Special oils, nickel-plated, increased corrosion protection, mounting inside air cylinders or other special options are available on request.

Application Examples

Industrial Shock Absorbers - MC33 to MC64
Industrial shock absorbers MAGNUM MC64150 from ACE are integrated into the overall safety design for the Amsterdam metro system. In contrast to previous solutions, they ensure rapid opening and stopping for a five-ton barrier located at the end of...
Industrial Shock Absorbers - MC33 to MC64
A pipeline from the rig to the well head that is as flexible as possible is considered to be a quick-disconnect connection in an emergency. Nevertheless, this connection made at the oil source on the sea floor is an Achilles heel. If the...
Industrial Shock Absorbers - MC33 to MC64
In this design, driven by rodless pneumatic cylinders, two gripper carriages move independently of each other at speeds of 2 to 2.5 m/s. ACE industrial shock absorbers from the product family MC33 to MC64 are used as brake systems, which have to...
