New Shock Absorber from ACE Controls

New Shock Absorber from ACE Controls

ACE Controls has introduced two new self-compensating industrial shock absorber models for glass bottle, blow-molding equipment. These durable models feature a M64 x 2 threaded outer tube and are adaptable to the blowhead machine position. They are interchangeable with competitive models.

Rugged in performance, these new ACE units are designed to handle the demanding high-temperatures and high cycle rates of the blowhead position.



These rugged performers provide controlled linear deceleration over a range of speed and weight combinations. They compensate for changes in both weight and velocity.

Time consuming adjusting of the shock absorber has been eliminated. Blowhead mechanisms are subjected to both high heat and high cycle rates and these fast-moving mechanisms must be stopped quickly and precisely.

ACE’s M64 x 2 Glass Shocks will handle the heat, reduce damage causing impact forces and increase blow-molding equipment life. With one-piece, solid construction, ACE reports that the M64 x 2 GLASS Shock offers long-lasting performance, attributable to the high-pressure inner tube combined with high-temperature seals and a solid one-piece piston rod.
