ACE Deceleration & Vibration Technology
Your partner for industrial shock absorbers, gas springs and vibration controls.
Our products help to make your production processes faster, more efficient, quieter, lighter, safer and more sustainable.
Tools for Engineers
We focus on developing tools and applications to help engineers be faster and more efficient. Our online sizing programs for hydraulic shocks and gas springs collect key application data and deliver the right solution for you. Download CAD files, print out installation drawings and even add products directly to your shopping cart.
Optimum tuning for any design
ACE universal damping solutions convert kinetic energy into heat. This makes machines faster, quieter, more durable, lighter and therefore more competitive and profitable. Here you will find the perfect selection of machine elements, which turn damaging forces into harmless heat. These solutions from ACE smoothly decelerate moving loads.
Motion Control Custom
Custom control of hand forces
The ACE products in this segment enhance the quality of any type of movement. Anyone who wants to raise or lower loads, regulate the feed of an object to the precise millimeter or gently decelerate rotating or linear movements will find the right solution here. ACE delivers industry-leading quality. Our innovative solutions correspond with stringent requirements for ergonomics and individuality, including custom pressurized gas springs.
Isolate unwanted vibrations
This ACE product group includes innovative solutions to provide customers with the best assistance in isolation technology and vibration isolation. These machine elements are also distinguished by their light design and wide variety. The product range extends from extremely low frequency isolating pneumatic leveling mounts to ready-to-install rubber-metal isolators and damping pads. With this portfolio, ACE is capable of offering you customized vibration isolation for almost any application.
Protection for all machine designs under any condition
This ACE product group provides Emergency braking to safely slow down moving loads and reduce damaging forces. Although the safety shock absorbers, TUBUS elastomer bumpers and clamping elements differ so much in design, every single ACE component provides the best protection for your machine. They demonstrate their main advantages in emergency stop situations and, based on the protection they provide, are very cost-effective.
Value Added Engineering
It starts with ACE’s application engineers working with customers developing new methods, applications and products to meet customer’s challenges today and for future requirements. The engineering teams focus on developing cost-effective, continuous improvement world-class products utilizing the latest in CAD, 3D system design, structural analysis and simulation software. The Adina software system of finite element analysis (FEA) allows ACE engineers to address issues in structural, thermal and fluid flow analysis.
ACE Controls Inc. is a leading innovator in deceleration and motion control technology and products. For over 50 years, ACE Controls has provided superior deceleration products to meet the needs and demands of the aerospace, automotive, robotic, material handling, medical, packaging, machine tool, lumber, steel, amusement, defense and many more industries.
ACE Controls consistently provides industry leadership with cost-effective world-class products to decelerate loads, prevent impact damage, dampen noise, increase cycle speeds and improve product performance.
ACE Controls pioneered the use of one-piece / closed-end body construction and inner pressure chambers in its range of products — all of which greatly reduce the chance of sudden failure or machine damage when overloaded. ACE continues to be recognized as industry’s preferred brand of industrial shock absorbers offering one of the broadest ranges of models, sizes, energy absorption and weight capacity applications. Leadership doesn’t stop there…. Ace has also established a reputation as a world leader in quality.
