A SpringMasters damper enables your equipment and vehicles to function optimally. We can offer you various diameters and you can determine the damper strength and length. We also have a wide selection of connection parts. Thus we have dampers for every situation. We offer professional advice and you can rest assured that our customer minded service will seek and find, with you, the best solution for your project.
SpringMasters has an extensive network of suppliers as a result of which we can take on both small and large orders. From a single damper to an industrial production batch. We will ensure that you will be supplied with the right damper.
Our dampers also offer many additional possibilities. For example, we can supply adjustable dampers for the prototype phase of your design. Thus the dampening intensity in the cylinder can be adjusted to increase or decrease the cushioning effect of the damper. Have you found the correct values and will the prototype continue on to the production phase? Then we will ensure that the dampers are made exactly in accordance with your determined specifications.
We have all the professional knowledge at SpringMasters to make various kinds of dampers.
What does a damper do?
As the name indicates, dampers are used to absorb sudden thrusts. They convert the thrust into heat and decrease the impact on the rest of the application.
EA damper does this with the aid of a cylinder which is almost entirely filled with hydraulic oil. The cylinder contains a piston which is connected to a piston rod. The piston contains a few small holes. The ideal damping intensity can be achieved by adjusting the diameter of the holes and the viscosity (thickness) of the oil.
What are dampers usually used for?
Dampers are used on a large scale in the automotive and machinery industries. Our models are geared more to the latter category. They decrease the vibration in large equipment and ensure that heavy equipment can be used properly. They can be found in almost all machines with moving parts whereby they dampen any excess movements. This prevents wear and tear and enables a long lifespan.
SpringMasters ensures the dampers can be put to use quickly and effectively. To this end we offer a broad and practical selection of connection parts and brackets. Due to our clever design, the damper is suitable for numerous situations. You can state the exact length of the required cylinder and the piston stroke. A different connection part can be mounted at each end. The following connection parts are available:
- Eye ends; a simple and effective manner to mount a damper. We have a wide range of standard eye ends. In addition, we can tailor them to your wishes.
- Rod ends; fitted with a PTFE ring to cushion heavy loads on the rod to which the damper or gas strut is connected.
- Clevis forks ; an extra strong connection for situations where the connection parts are exposed to heavy loads. They are suitable due to their high resistance against thrusts and tensile forces. We do, however, expect the damper to be mounted in a straight line between the two connection points.
- Ball joints; smart solutions for areas with limited space. They cushion loads to prevent them from impacting the piston rod directly. This prevents excessive wear and tear of the piston and increases the damper’s life span.
SpringMasters’ complete service
We ensure that you will receive the best product with each gas strut and damper. Here, the choice plays a central role. The above-mentioned connection parts are examples of this. In addition, and if required, we also offer end fittings. They are geared to numerous situations. Good examples are the light weight plastic mounts and brackets. Useful if your project’s total weight has to be low.
In addition to dampers, we also have a wide range of gas struts. The technology behind them is similar to that applied to gas compression systems and pistons, but with a few small holes. The final result is a tailor-made gas compression or traction strut. You simply choose the piston/cylinder ratio and then add the length and the desired force. The connection parts can also be selected on the spot. The dimensions of the parts are immediately visible. With all this information you will know, up to the millimetre, how long the gas strut or damper has to be.
Furthermore, you can select a few useful extra properties for your damper. Does the damper need to dampen only the tensile force, or the compression force, or both? We can also make sure that the damper continues to work at high temperatures. The standard model is suitable for -30 to 80 degrees Celsius. The heat adjusted version increases the upper limit to 200 degrees Celsius. In addition, we can supply the cylinder, the piston and the connection parts in stainless steel. Our complete service has taken everything into consideration.
