Use an engineered approach to tailor a perfect standard gas spring for your design
Standard gas springs are quick and easy to order. They’re also relatively inexpensive provided they don’t need troubleshooting upon receipt. However, customers may underestimate the amount of data they need to specify a gas spring. Furthermore, off-the-shelf gas springs commonly offer one of three choices of output force. Will one of those three forces be right? Either way, customers may get unintended results. Depending on your application, some degree of customization is necessary to ensure you have just the right gas spring for your assembly. There is a better way to optimize your selection. We recommend taking an engineered approach to add gas springs to your design, using standard industrial gas springs as a starting point.
