Today’s educational video is a simple tip to extend and prolong the life of your gas shocks or gas cylinder lifts. There really isn’t much we can do in most cases but with certain equipment we can do one simple thing to help preserve the gas lift cylinder and extend its life. Gas lifters or gas shocks can be expensive to replace and in the screen printing industry we can find them as a part of a few different pieces of equipment. The 2 most common places to find the gas shocks are on the exposure tables with vacuum tops and they are often used on manual rotary presses. I think this is due to the fact that by using the gas shock less is needed on the actual press to do the lift arm job. But it also means this cylinder will be going up and down like crazy. Therefore on the exposure units we can take measures to preserve our gas lifters but with a manual rotary press we are much more limited as to preserving the gas lift cylinder. So this may be one of those bits of info that you can have in your back pocket and use whenever possible. Enjoy!
