In many applications, the weight is decisive. We therefore pay attention that the weight of the single components is as low as possible. This was the reason to develop the Bansbach gas spring completely of aluminium. The weight saving is not done at the expense of the product characteristics. This aluminium gas spring has the same characteristics as the Bansbach gas springs made of steel or stainless steel. Only with the stated weight saving.
In comparison to standard gas spring, this one is more than 50 % lighter. A standard gas spring with diametre 8/19 mm weighs approx. 250 g (with a stroke of 150 mm). A comparable aluminium gas spring with diametre 8/20 mm (with the same stroke) weighs only approx.120 g.
Above all, this weight advantage becomes decisive when the weight is an essential factor and several gas springs will be used - as you can see in the aircraft industry, e.g. in airplanes.
