Choosing the right gas spring
Gas springs come in a range of sizes to suit different applications – but how do you know which one you need? A new ACETips video on the ACE Global YouTube channel answers that question and tells you everything you’ll need to know in order to choose the correct size of gas spring.
The calculations are quite simple, based on characteristics like the centre of gravity and weight of the object to be moved, its starting and opening angle, and the radius handforce needed to move it. The video is the latest in a series of helpful videos on the ACE Global YouTube channel, which have covered everything from sizing and positioning gas springs, to adjusting gas spring pressure and shock absorber resistance.
A year ago, the channel began with a video showing how to measure equipment vibrations using an iPhone – for free. Together, the videos are building steadily into a comprehensive resource showing how to choose and use motion control components. You can also see real-world case studies and ACE Global exhibition materials on the channel too, making it a fantastic one-stop resource that answers many of the most common enquiries.
