Great potential for lockable gas springs

Great potential for lockable gas springs

Lesjöfors Gas Springs has developed the capacity to produce lockable type gas springs in-house. RLE (rigidly lockable in extension) gas springs allow for effortless motion control of beds, tables and hatches with the additional ability to lock the stroke at any point. This facilitates variable positioning of the application with rigid locking forces in the extension or compression direction, as well as elastic locking abilities.

Lesjöfors says this function is achieved by a unique, valve-piston system that effectively separates the inner cylinder into two working pressure chambers.  Actuating the valve-piston, reconnects the pressure chambers, allowing for the gas spring to freely move to the desired position.

Currently, Lesjöfors' standard range of lockable gas springs is comprised of 70 unique part numbers with rigid locking forces in the tension direction. Custom solutions are available with strokes up to 250mm, forces up to 1000 Nand locking forces in any direction.

Lesjöfors is also announcing a new range of actuator buttons that provide an elegant, low profile actuation solution.
