more force on contact than standard springs, meaning reduced die construction costs with fewer cylinders. The series consists of four models, ranging from 75- to 150-mm dia. with contact forces from 5356 to 21,447 lb. The springs are available in stroke lengths to 200 mm, with a variety of welded and attachable mounts.

Dadco also offers the new patented SLN.180 Micro nitrogen-gas lifter, providing an all-in-one approach to guided-lift applications. The robust lifter, with a 50-mm OD, has a keyed guide rod to prevent rotation and eliminate the need for additional guidance components. Complete with a built-in dampening device, the SLN.180 is ideal for progressive dies, and is available with basic and slotted guide-rod options for single, multi-point or rail-lift operations. The company’s Micro 180 gas spring, housed inside the guide rod, provides reliable lifting force and facilitates rapid, simple repair.
