Multi-position gas spring with friction control
The ‘Stop & Stay+’ is the latest offering from Camloc Motion Control – the designers and UK manufacturers of Camloc gas struts, springs, dampers, brackets and end fittings – and this multi-positional gas spring is already in demand, thanks to its unique features which are set to make life easier for both designers and users alike.
Ideal for a wide variety of applications, including canopies, monitor arms, acoustic hoods, delicatessen counters, sunbeds and many more, Camloc has devised the Stop & Stay+ gas spring to provide the ability to fix an application in any position, angle or distance – without the need for either an external friction device or a release mechanism.
Camloc Motion Control engineering manager Matt Warne further explains the benefits: “Stop & Stay+ gas springs will enable multi-position holding of a counter-balanced weight, without the need for any manual adjustment.
“The specially-designed internal friction valve is pre-set to your application’s weight, making Stop & Stay+ gas springs very quick and easy to fit, so they are ideally suited to production volumes where consistency and repeatability are required straight out of the box. “Once fitted, finger tip control allows movement to any position along the gas spring’s stroke, so users can raise, lower and position a canopy, for example, in any position with the minimum amount of effort and in quick time.”
Available in two sizes – 8mm rod diameter to 18mm tube, and 10mm rod diameter to 23mm tube – the Stop & Stay+ is the latest addition to Camloc Motion Control’s vast product range, which includes the popular Cam-Stay telescopic positioning stay, and the Cam-Shoc hydraulic damping unit. “The Stop & Stay+ is an incredibly useful product that will really make a difference to the design and usability of applications, such as foot or leg support panels on medical beds, service flaps or roof windows, back and foot rest adjustments of recliners – the list really is endless,” adds Warne.
