Abstract

In order to increase the absorption of a conventional pneumatic shock absorber, a mechanism with additional breakrings was developed. If the plugger 1 is moved forward by a force 3, the air will be compressed and pushed out of the chamber 4.

Shock Absorber with Additional Break Effect

      In order to increase the absorption of a conventional pneumatic
shock absorber, a mechanism with additional breakrings was developed.
If the plugger 1 is moved forward by a force 3, the air will be
compressed and pushed out of the chamber 4.

      The compressed air is guided through the channels on the
backside of the breakrings 2.  Thereby the breakrings 2 are pushed
outwards generating an additional break effect.

      The break effect depends on how fast the plugger 1 is moved
forward.  Low speed results in no additional break effect, high speed
results in a high break effect.

Thereby manually moved masses can reliably be breaked down to a given
speed.
