Gas springs

Gas springs are increasingly used worldwide. They provide almost constant force throughout the spring's travel, offering crucial advantages in many applications. Therefore, we offer you a wide range of gas springs available in the MDL standard catalogue or on request, as well as cam followers.

MDL Brand Gas Springs

As AzolGas' partners, we offer a wide range of gas springs in various formats for all applications. Available in different formats (standard ISO gas springs, mini gas springs, compact gas springs, etc.), these springs offer a very long service life, corrosion resistance, and are also easy to fix. They are perfectly suitable for stamping applications.

Since 1982, AzolGas has specialized in the design, development, and manufacturing of gas springs. With a dedicated research and development service, AzolGas springs guarantee a quality product that is always at the forefront of innovation. AzolGas springs are ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 certified.

Advantages of Gas Springs

Gas springs have numerous advantages that make them interesting alternatives. Firstly, they can provide higher force compared to wire or elastomer springs in a compact space. Additionally, this force is immediate and almost constant over the entire length of the travel, which is itself higher. Thus, they can replace multiple wire springs, reducing the number of springs used and worn.

How to Choose Your Gas Spring?

To determine a gas spring, several parameters must be considered. The first step is based on the tool's stroke and the required force. These elements help determine the following six parameters:

  • Body diameter
  • Length L1
  • Force
  • Rod diameter
  • If screwing at the back: spacing and screw diameter.

Mounting Gas Springs

Strict adherence to the gas spring mounting instructions is crucial to ensure the safety and lifespan of the tool and springs.
The gas spring must be fixed and placed in a precise housing (within a few tenths relative to the spring's body) since the force must be aligned with the rod. Additionally, it is recommended to use 90% of the travel for safety.

Please note, if the spring body is immersed in oil, there is a risk of joint degradation due to the oil and swarf. If the oil enters the cylinder body, it will lead to increased pressure.
