Shock Absorber Selector

Sometimes the accessories are the key

Employing the right absorber can make the difference in the smoothness of your process.

Whether you need to ensure a soft impact, to guarantee dampening at high speed, or to have a solution that protects the workpiece from potential marking, we’ve got the optimal shock absorber to absorb and reduce the impact when load stops.

Simply select, through a series of illustrations, the collision form, operating direction, type of thrust and load shape, to make sure you get the best absorber for your application.
