ACE Controls has launched a new, user-friendly online calculator, enabling customers to size ACE gas springs for hoods, flaps and machine enclosures. The tool also dramatically shortens the time between design and delivery.
The tool—available on the “Calculations” tab of the ACE homepage—requires customers to input the details of the flap, including the length, width and opening angle. It then generates interactive 2D and 3D simulations, which users can rotate, tilt and zoom. In addition, the tool calculates the pressure and provides customers with the model number and desired mounting accessories. Users can download a mounting sketch with the specifications, or they can submit the online contact form to initiate the order process.
