Moving loads, improving truck safety Gas springs and dampers for intralogistics

Whether pallets and racks, storage and retrieval machines, or crane systems: Your area of expertise comprises lifting, moving, and protecting loads. And doing so with equal parts safety and ergonomics.

With Stabilus, you’ll find cutting-edge technological solutions that provide effective support for your innovative products. Our solutions include gas springs that enable safe movements as well as damping technology for safely braking masses and reliably triggering emergency stops. 

This is how we deliver on your value proposition for comfort, reliability, and durability in all situations. 

Pallets and racks

Many projects center around one question: “How can we move more material within a smaller space – not just to cut costs, but also to support more sustainable mobility?” Our gas springs help make safe, stable, and ergonomic operation of folding elements possible here.

Our portfolio contains the right answer for all of your customers’ needs. At one end of the spectrum are pallets and racks for simple loading, with the gas spring serving only to support the folding mechanism. At the other end of the spectrum are solutions for highly sensitive parts that require special protection during transport, such as semiconductors or batteries.

High-bay warehouses and storage and retrieval machines

Logistics centers and industrial intralogistics systems are common applications where high-bay warehouses and storage and retrieval machines must run 24/7 without missing a beat. That makes the protection of personnel and technology all the more important. 

With heavy-duty dampers from Stabilus, even large masses and heavy objects can be stopped reliably. Our safety shock absorbers also ensure safe emergency stop operations to protect your employees and systems. 

Crane systems

Large loads, high value: Your crane system must be capable of secure end-position damping and reliable emergency stop operations particularly during a malfunction, such as a power outage or improper system calibration. 

With our heavy-duty dampers, you avert damage to the system and possible serious risks to people and equipment.
