Working Principle of Gas Springs

Gas spring is a kind of elastic component. It seals the high-pressure nitrogen in a certain container. The external force compresses the nitrogen through the plunger rod. The high-pressure nitrogen expands to obtain the certain elastic pressure after external force removed. We call this type of device nitrogen cylinder or gas spring.

At present, common elastic elements includes springs, rubbers and air cushions. We use these elastic elements widely to meet various elastic energy storage needs in mold industry. However, the original common elastic elements have some disadvantages. Because they can’t ideally solve the requirements in the stamping process.

Current stamping designers only can use air cushions to make up for these insufficient. However, if we use the press air cushion, it will be inconvenient for mold designing and using.

In this case, people are working hard to develop a new type of elastic functional components to replace common elastic elements. This new elastic element has more perfect performance. And it can replace common elastic elements to complete the work that common elastic elements are difficult to complete. Gas spring came into being as new elastic tool parts.

Usage and Application of Gas Springs

It can simplify mold designing and manufacturing. It makes the adjustment easier in mold. We can use it as an independent installed component in molds. Because we can design it as a tube spring, so it becomes a part of the mold. Then it can easily achieve constant pressure, and delayed action in the system. It is an elastic component with flexible properties.

Gas spring is not only widely used in the mold industry, but can also be used in other industrial fields, such as automotive, electronics, instrumentation and other industries. From this point of view, the use of gas springs is quite extensive. Its appearance meets the requirements of the times, and meets the needs of industrial development.
