Industrial Gas Springs – Pull Type

Very low progression rate

Valve Technology
Traction force max. 150 N
Stroke 80 mm

The solution to a lack of space: If standard push type gas springs cannot be used due to a lack of space, ACES' industrial pull type gas springs come into their own. They work in the opposite way to standard push type gas springs. The piston rod is retracted when the cylinder is unloaded. The gas pressure in the cylinder draws the piston rod in.

ACE pull type gas springs offer the maximum service life thanks to the solid chrome-plated piston rod and an integrated sliding bearing. The maintenance-free and ready-to-install products are available in body diameters of 15 mm to 40 mm as well as forces from 40 N to 5,000 N and are available from stock with valve and large selection of accessories. The traction force can be subsequently adjusted using the valve.
