The LIFT-O-MAT FR is a gas spring featuring a special piston package with an integrated friction element, which – in addition to force support – allows infinitely variable holding over the entire adjustment range. Even weight fluctuations between defined limits, for example due to varying loads, can be offset. LIFT-O-MAT FR allows free positioning of the application, without the need to actuate a lock or release mechanism. LIFT-O-MAT FR provides for comfort in the application and makes work easier for the user. Its application possibilities are wide ranging; for example, wall cabinets in kitchen applications or free-moving arms in medical technology or in the electronics industry.
