Hydraulic Cushioning from Vega Cylinders

Hales Hydraulic Vega

The base of VEGA Cylinders' system is a standard hydraulic cushioning. Therefore, kinetic energy is absorbed by trapping oil in a virtually closed volume at the end of the stroke, which will let it out through a very narrow orifice. The increase in oil speed to the square generates a pressure drop, which absorbs the energy along the cushioning length.

Cushioning screws are custom-made, with their cone set at a specific angle to allow very fine tuning. Safety against over-opening. The screw cannot be loosened past its safety limit due to the safety nut provided. Fast re-start in the opposite direction. The bushing will close oil passage when cushioning is needed, but will let oil flow through in the other direction.
