For over 48 years, ACE Controls has provided superior deceleration products to meet the needs of the automotive, robotics, material handling, packaging, steel, machine tool, lumber, amusement, medical and other industries.
ACE’s aggressive product planning team focuses on continuous improvement and new product development. The goal is to provide customers with cost-effective, world-class products to meet their current and future requirements in a competitive global marketplace.
In order to assure that this goal is achieved ACE utilizes the latest computer technology and CAD system software. Solid Edge enables the ACE engineering team to virtually assemble 3D designs with speed and accuracy. The Adina software system of finite element analysis allows ACE engineers to address issues in structural, thermal and fluid flow analysis.
Rigorous lab testing assures that all new ACE products are capable of meeting the most demanding deceleration challenges. Products are evaluated for endurance, cycle life and material strength.
The complete ACE Controls product range includes: industrial and safety shock absorbers, velocity and feed controllers, gas springs, hydraulic dampers, rotary dampers, TUBUS bumpers and V-Sensors for monitoring damaging unit vibration levels.

Gas springs, also called gas dampers, tension springs, gas-pressure springs depending on the setup and context, are compressed-air or oil cylinders that install in motion designs to damp forces and return kinematic linkages and more complicated assemblies to default positions. Gas springs work through a piston on the end of a rod that protrudes from […][Read More]
Design engineers who employ advanced damping and vibration isolation can vastly improve the performance of their industrial-automation machinery. By Larry Cavalloro • ACE Controls A top objective for designers of industrial-automation machinery is to build and tune axes for minimal vibration (free or forced); gently and precisely slow axes’ moving masses; and render unavoidable machinery […][Read More]
The move to faster speeds, larger volumes and greater outputs in automated machinery is prompting more use of vibration and shock mitigation technologies. This has intensified innovations to shock absorbers, vibration dampers, air bearings and other devices, which run the gamut from faster response-designs to smart technologies. According to Brian Fink, Product Manager, Aerotech Inc.,… [Read More]
