Flexibility in on- and off-highway applications

Flexibility in on- and off-highway applications
The latest range of Stabilus gas springs and dampers from SKF has been developed to give engineers a wide range of options for designing safe, reliable and cost effective systems for lifting bonnets, hatches, windows and seats. Stabilus gas springs and dampers are constructed for use in the most demanding applications, making them suitable for use in construction, agricultural and forestry machines. They are available in a wide choice of configurations, and incorporate a number of innovative features to improve vehicle function and operation.

The latest Stabilus LIFT-O-MAT hydro-pneumatic gas springs are designed for use in high load applications, where large panels such as bonnets, access covers and tailgates need to be lifted or lowered in a carefully controlled manner. 

The LIFT-O-MAT system offers dynamic extension damping, providing a gradual reduction in operating speed at either end of the stroke, to reduce shock and wear on hinges or panel joints. This is achieved either by the use of a gas filled pressure tube with a longitudinally grooved piston, for medium weight duties, or for heavier duty applications, the use of hydraulic extension dampening. The latter combines gas and oil filled internal chambers with a patented labyrinth design of piston, enabling the degree of dampening to be automatically adapted as the piston moves from the gas to the oil phase.

Also in the latest range are STAB-O-SHOC hydraulic dampers, designed to provide effective motion and vibration dampening and control, for example for operator seats, trailer couplings and V-belt tensioners. Available in a number of configurations, for vertical or horizontal mounting, STAB-O-SHOC provides instant and efficient dampening, with the option of symmetrical force distribution under tension and compression, or the ability to set tension and compression forces independently.
