Shock absorbers

- YSR: adjustable
- YSR-...-C: self-adjusting
- YSRW: with progressive characteristic curve
- YSRWJ: combination of cushioning with progressive
characteristics, end-position sensing and precision end-
position adjustment:

YSR shock absorber

With these hydraulic shock absorbers, impact energy is
dissipated by displacing oil via a pressure-controlled valve.
An integrated
compression spring returns the piston rod to its initial position.
Cushioning action can be infinitely adjusted by means of an
adjusting ring.
Adjustment can be performed during operation. The shock
absorbers can be used as end stops, subject to the specified
maximum impact

Shock absorber YSR- ... -C

In the case of this self-adjusting hydraulic shock absorber,
energy acting upon the piston rod has the effect of
displacing oil through a
combination of a pressure operated pressure relief valve and
a position dependent flow control valve. This ensures
automatic adaptation
to every possible cushioning requirement within permissible
energy limits. An integrated compression spring returns the
piston rod to its
initial position.

Shock absorber YSRW

Unlike the YSR-...-C shock absorber, these shock absorbers
have progressive characteristics. This allows for gradually
rising cushioning
force with a longer stroke. Vibration is thus significantly
reduced at handling systems. This allows for the realisation
of shorter cycle times.
