Dampers provide constant speed motion control.

Press Release Summary:

Compression and extension dampers are force-absorbing devices used where load or door must be lowered or swung in controlled motion at constant speed. Products are offered in rod/tube diameter sizes from .24 x .59 in. to .315 x .87 in., with stroke lengths from 2-7 in., extended lengths from 7.9-19.7 in., and max load capacities from 50-100 lb. Custom dampers are available in lengths to 26 in. with stroke to 10 in, and all dampers may be double-damped.

Dampers Provide Constant Speed Motion Control

RONKONKOMA, NY - H. A. Guden Co., Inc. has introduced a full line of compression and extension dampers to assist designers and engineers with their motion control needs. Guden dampers are used primarily where a heavy load or door must be lowered or swung in a controlled motion at a constant speed. For example, dampers prevent a door from being slammed shut, or from being pulled or swung wildly open.

Guden dampers supplement their gas springs to provide a complete selection of lifting, lowering and dampening options. While similar in appearance to gas springs, dampers are force-absorbing instead of force-supplying devices. Two types are offered to control speed in either compression or extension, depending on the mounting position.

In Guden dampers, a piston with a small orifice must pass through hydraulic oil, thus controlling speed. They are made in rod/tube diameter sizes from .24" by .59" to .315" by .87". with stroke lengths from 2" to 7", extended lengths from 7.9" to 19.7" and maximum load capacities from 50 lb to 100 lb load per damper. Heavy, medium heavy, medium, medium light and light damping dampers are all available.

Custom dampers are available in lengths up to 26" with a stroke of up to 10". All dampers are available on special order "double-damped" - damped in both compression and extension.

Technical drawings, purchasing and immediate delivery are all available by phone, fax and online at www.guden.com.
