Basically, a gas spring is the same as a mechanical coil spring: a device that stores energy. However, gas springs store energy by compressing an internal gas rather than using the strained material that makes up the coil spring.
A gas spring is a device that can control the rise or fall of an object without using external energy.
Gas springs consist of a cylinder that acts as a pressure tube. Piston rod with piston and end fittings.
Gas springs contain pure nitrogen. Nitrogen is non-explosive and non-toxic. The internal pressure of the gas spring is very high, so it is best not to open it unless it is professionally engineered and maintained by Signova Industries.
The gas spring cylinder is powder coated and the gas spring piston rod is nitrided. It is corrosion resistant but cannot be used in environments with constant moisture loads.
Compressed gas spring is powered by high-pressure inert gas. It has the advantages of no pollution, no noise, constant lifting force during the whole working process, easy installation, safe use, and no maintenance. It is designed with a buffer mechanism to avoid the impact in place. It is the biggest feature superior to ordinary springs.
Gas springs are used in a wide variety of applications and in countless assemblies. If an engineer, builder or designer wants to control motion without adding extra energy, gas springs may be the perfect solution in many cases.
The advantages of gas springs over mechanical springs are their speed and unique damping characteristics, which allow for easy handling of even heavy loads. Signova Industries also provides a variety of accessories to provide a variety of possibilities and combinations for design and installation.
The beauty of a gas spring is that it provides a harmonious and controlled final touch to your assembly.
Common types of gas springs:
Compression gas springs (damping occurs in the direction of compression), are also the most common gas springs.
The tension gas spring (damping occurs in the direction of extension)
In addition, there are lockable gas springs (a gas spring that can be locked and stopped at any position in the stroke), variable damping gas springs (a special gas spring with a special damping groove section that changes continuously to achieve continuous stability) and other relatively small products. type.
