LIFT-O-MAT – Gas Spring with Hydraulic Compression and Extension Damping
Wherever a folding or turning motion needs to be held safely in the end position, the LIFT-O-MAT gas spring with hydraulic motion damping is the right choice.

It will prevent unbraked force application to hinges or joints, saving the material from wear and tear. The entire motion sequence will become more harmonic and controlled overall.

 

Function

The hydraulically dampened LIFT-O-MAT has an extra oil chamber. As soon as the piston leaves the gas range and enters the oil, its speed will be reduced. The degree of damping is determined by the use of patented Labyrinth pistons, as well as by the viscosity of the oil. The oil amount used will define the damping range.

To dampen extension, the gas spring is installed vertically with the piston rod down. In situations where additional compression damping is needed, there are standard models that can be installed vertically with the piston rod pointing up.

Advantages

  • Simple design
  • Excellent price/performance ratio
  • Available in the standard product line with damping in extension direction
  • Damping in compression and extension direction possible
  • Different end fitting systems for fast and easy mounting
  • Maintenance-free

Applications

  • Doors and flaps in machinery and system manufacturing, vehicle manufacturing, in medical technology (swivel arms and brackets), the furniture industry, and other industrial applications.

HYDRO-LIFT

Variable Tilt Adjustment without Actuation Mechanism

The HYDRO-LIFT gas spring provides force assist and allows variable, comfortable positioning of the application at any tilt angle.

With rigid locking, the HYDRO-LIFT gas spring can even handle weight fluctuations between defined limits, for example due to varying loads. Another advantage is that no actuation mechanism is required for adjustment.

 

Function

The HYDRO-LIFT from Stabilus is a gas spring featuring a special piston package with a valve closing system, which – in addition to force assist – allows progressive positioning over the entire adjustment range. Depending on the design, the hold function can be active across the entire adjustment range, or in one or more partial ranges of the stroke.

Unlike the gas-filled version, the oil-filled spring features rigid locking and can be switched into the compression direction. It is preferred for very light loads. In this version, the light spring deflection is eliminated.

Advantages

  • Holds the application without an actuation mechanism
  • Especially for larger weight fluctuations within defined limits

Applications

  • Tilting of foot sections of hospital and nursing home beds
  • Tilt and height adjustment for lamp stands, monitor arms and brackets in medical technology
  • Tilt adjustment for desks
LIFT-O-MAT PTL

Gas Spring for Stop in the Compressed Position

The LIFT-O-MAT PTL gas spring with self-stop function (ballpoint pen principle) has stood the test of time in modern, innovative designer and functional furniture numerous times.

In the compressed position, the gas spring is held by a locking system which will extend noiselessly upon a gentle push on the gas spring.

 

Function

The LIFT-O-MAT PTL from Stabilus is a gas spring with an additional mechanical lock in the compressed position.

Similar to the ball point pen principle, the lock can be released by a light push; the gas spring will then extend automatically. In addition to the force assist function, this gas spring features an end position lock eliminating the need for additional fixing elements.

At the same time, LIFT-O-MAT PTL is easy and convenient to use.

Advantages

  • Locking in the compressed position
  • End position lock without additional fixing elements
  • Simple release of the lock by the ballpoint pen principle
  • User-friendly, comfortable operation
  • Maintenance-free

Applications

  • Elegant lowering of bar compartments
  • Lifting and lowering of headrest panels in sofas or recliners
  • Extending and recessing monitors and connector strips in conference tables
LIFT-O-MAT – Gas Spring with External End Position Stop
The larger the lid, the more unpleasant the consequences if it should start moving on its own and fall shut.

In addition to force assist, the LIFT-O-MAT gas spring with end position lock also provides a safe mechanical lock of the application in the open position.

 

Function

The gas spring with the lock on the outside features a support tube at the end of the piston rod that folds out automatically when the gas spring is fully extended. During closing, the support tube must be folded down by hand.

Advantages

  • Locking and unlocking directly on the adjustment element
  • Additional protection against unintentional closing

LIFT-O-MAT – Gas Spring with Dynamic Motion Damping
The LIFT-O-MAT gas spring with dynamic damping from Stabilus works regardless of its mounting orientation, thus approaching any position comfortably, without stressing hinges and joints.

With dynamic compression damping, this LIFT-O-MAT is particularly well suited for engine hoods and lids where the piston rod swivels from top to bottom. Upon closing, the hood or lid will be dampened gently, reducing wear on the material.

 

Function

With a special longitudinal groove inside the pressure tube, the damping properties can be influenced as needed and thus customized to almost any application. The controlled approach of intermediate positions is also possible.

By reducing or increasing the groove cross-section, the speed of motion can be varied over the entire stroke and continuously slowed down to the stopping point.

Advantages

  • Orientation-independent function
  • Defined speed control
  • Great tunability of damping characteristics
  • Dampened approach of intermediate positions possible

Applications

  • Doors and flaps in machine and system design, automotive construction, in medical technology (swivel arms and brackets), the furniture industry and other industrial applications where the piston rod swivels from the top to the bottom.
LIFT-O-MAT FR

Variable Positioning over the Entire Adjustment Range

The LIFT-O-MAT FR gas pressure spring combines ergonomic requirements with the highest level of functionality and space-saving design.

In addition to providing force assist, it allows variable positioning over the entire adjustment range, without using a lock or an actuation mechanism. The advantage is that doors that swing upward can be reached and closed more easily also by shorter persons. Because of its comfortable, variable positioning characteristics, the LIFT-O-MAT FR gas spring is frequently used in free-moving brackets.

 

Function

The only difference between the LIFT-O-MAT FR and the standard LIFT-O-MAT is a special piston package with an integrated friction element. In addition to force assist, this allows variable holding over the entire adjustment range. Operation of a lock or actuation mechanism is not required. Even weight fluctuations between defined limits, for example due to varying loads, can be offset.

Advantages

  • Will stay safely open in any position
  • Convenient, ergonomic, and variable positioning without locking into a position
  • Adjustable without an actuation mechanism
  • Compact, attractive design

Function

The INTER-STOP from Stabilus is a dynamically dampened gas spring with the additional holding force of the HYDRO-LIFT in the extension direction. It can be divided into two or more function areas and provides different opening options.

In one range, the gas spring will extend freely with force assist and then softly stop at a defined point.

In a second range with holding function, the gas spring can be stopped variably. There it can hold the load of the application in any intermediate position up to the end stop, until manually pushed into a new holding position.

The compression function of the gas spring is the same as in a standard LIFT-O-MAT.

Advantages

  • Wide variety of opening functions
  • Will stay safely open in any position
  • Easy mounting
  • Maintenance-free

Applications

  • Service flaps, hoods, car hoods, doors, roof windows – wherever different opening points are desired.
LIFT-O-MAT INOX

Corrosion Protection for Very Demanding Applications

When it comes to resisting environmental effects, this stainless steel gas spring stands out due to its functionality and attractive appearance – and that for many years.

The special characteristics of the LIFT-O-MAT Inox Line ensure a high level of protection against acid or lye exposure, or when used in a critical environmental, such as corrosive sea water or industrial air.

The larger the lid, the more unpleasant the consequences if it should start moving on its own and fall shut.

In addition to force assist, the LIFT-O-MAT gas spring with end position lock also provides a safe mechanical lock of the application in the open position.

 

Function

The locking of a gas spring with the lock on the inside is comparable to the mechanics of a ball point pen: when the gas spring is pushed in lightly, it will catch. If pushed briefly in the extension direction, the locking mechanism will be released.

Advantages

  • Locking and unlocking directly on the adjustment element
  • Additional protection against unintentional closing
  • No need to install additional fixing elements
  • Maintenance-free
  • Releasing the gas spring and adjusting the application with only one hand (lock on the inside)

End Fittings
Stabilus offers a variety of end fittings for gas spring installation.

 

Our standard end fittings:

Zinc plated steel brackets

Our brackets ensure safe installation in the most diverse industrial applications. They match our standard end fittings and were specifically designed to high load and corrosion resistance specifications. Each model features an elongated fixation hole to allow correction during installation. Our large selection covers most application needs.

Angle joint made of metal with or without ball pivots

This angle joint is a high-quality and sturdy variant in our line of end fittings. Due to its high strength, it is especially suited for applications where high forces occur, providing the necessary convenience. What is special about the angle joint is its ease of installation, and that it can also compensate for angle offset. That means, in applications where the gas spring is installed slightly out of plumb, the angle joint will offset the resulting angle.

Angle joint made of plastic with or without ball pivots

The plastic angle joint is an inexpensive variant of the angle joint.  Also very easy to install and, like the metal joint, it will compensate for angle offset. The plastic variant is especially suited for applications in which light loads will be moved.

Metal eyes

Our metal eyes are also used as end fittings. Due to their high strength and in the various lengths, thicknesses and diameters available, they are extremely flexible.

Stainless steel eye

Stainless steel eyes have the same functionality as eyes made from metal. The high-quality properties of stainless steel provide additional corrosion protection when exposed to acid and lye or in critical environments, such as sea or industrial air.

Fork head made of metal

Should extremely high forces or weights occur in an application, the fork head will be the safest variant. Due to its high-strength connection, which is additionally supported by a metal pin, it can safely move high loads.

Ball joint

With this special ball joint, Stabilus is making  the installation of gas springs in cars easier. Only a punched-out hole is required for assembly; weld-on ball pivots or angled plates will no longer be necessary.

 

Other options

Of course we have various other special variants in our product line. Our application engineers will be glad to tell you more about them.
