Deschner engineered the Impacta series with the same standard of performance of their original premium adjustable Cushioneer model shock absorber, but in a competitively priced unit. Impacta self-adjusting shock absorbers operate millions of cycles maintenance free and are leak resistant due to a unique sliding seal system.
They use a stainless steel rod to provide long wear life and feature an M25 threaded body making them interchangeable with a wide range of industrial shock absorbers. As with other Deschner models, the Impactas are also equipped with a flexible rod wiper to prevent dirt, chips and moisture from entering the unit.
Impacta shock absorbers are small and streamlined, handy to mount in tight spots, yet powerful enough to solve most shock problems. Available initially in a stroke length of 1″ with a capacity of up to 900 in. lbs. Other stroke lengths and sizes coming soon.
Impactas are suitable for use on high speed machines such as reciprocating slides, flying die cut off machines, roll forming equipment, packaging machines, book binders–anywhere where fast moving equipment must be brought to a smooth stop. Because of its wide range of energy capacity, the Impacta is also suitable for applications with fluctuating impact loads. The use of food grade silicon fluid in place of standard hydraulic fluid allows the Impacta to be used in medical and food processing applications.
The “flow control” contained in the high-pressure cylinder of the self-adjusting Impacta, is arranged so that the piston is increasingly restricted as the piston advances. The flow control system maintains a steady flow rate even under large changes in impact energy and the ensuing changes in fluid pressure. The result is a shock absorber that SELF COMPENSATES to a wide range of impact loads and provides a smooth stopping action for any load within its capacity.
