progressive damping


progressive damping
provides deceleration with a gradually increasing shock force. The initial minimal resistance at impact protects delicate loads and machinery from damage. Progressive damping shock absorbers also have built-in self-compensation, so they can operate over a wide range of weights and velocities.
