New generation Smart industrial shock absorbers which can automatically adjust its damping characteristics as per the load parameters, give real-time feedback information to machine controller, its working conditions and generate warning alarms in case of preventive maintenance or failure. It will be commercially available soon.Industrial shock absorbers are hydraulic components that reliably decelerate moving masses. This allows machines to work faster and reduce maintenance costs. Industrial shocks work by restricting oil flow through a series of throttle holes. When the piston rod is pushed into the cylinder, oil is displaced through the throttle holes, which are progressively closed. As a result, the speed gradually decreases as the shock absorber is compressed and prevents serious damage to machine.
