  • Selection

    Caution7. Parallel usage

    When using multiple shock absorbers in parallel, energy will not be divided evenly because of differences in product di-mensions and devices. For this reason, select the following options.E= Ea/N/0.6E: Energy used per shock absorberEa: All energiesN: The number of shock absorbers used in parallel.

    Series RJSpecific Product Precautions 1Be sure to read this before handling. Refer to back pages 1 and 2 for Safety Instructions, “Handling Precautions for SMC Products” (M-E03-3) for Common Precautions.

    Danger1. Absorbed energy

    Select a model so that the aggregated energy of an impacting material should not exceed the maximum absorbed energy. Otherwise, it could cause changes in properties or result in damaging the shock absorber.

    2. Equivalent massSelect a model so that the equivalent mass should not exceed the allowable range. Otherwise, pulsation could occur in buffer capacity and deceleration force, thus making it difficult to ab-sorb shock smoothly.

    3. Collision speedUse the product within the specified collision speed range. Otherwise, it could cause the changes in buffer characteristics or result in damaging the shock absorber.

    Warning1. Static load

    Design the system so that any other forces than the buffer ca-pacity or impacts should not be applied to the piston rod which is stopped at the retracted state.

    Caution1. Maximum operating frequency

    Design the system in the conditions under which it is not used at the frequency exceeding the specified maximum operating frequency.

    2. StrokeThe specified maximum absorbed energy cannot be exerted unless the full stroke is used.

    3. Work surface of an impacting materialThe contact surface of an impacting material with which the piston rod comes into contact must be highly rigid.A high surface compression load is applied to the contact sur-face of the impacting material with which the piston rod comes into contact. Therefore, the contact surface must be highly rig-id (hardness of HRC35 or more).

    4. Be aware of the backlash of the impacting material.When used in a conveyor line, the object may be pushed back by the built-in spring force after energy is absorbed. For back-lash, refer to the spring force in the specifications. (page 5)

    5. Selection of sizeAs the number of operation proceeds, the maximum absorbed energy of shock absorbers will be decreased by the reasons such as abrasion, or deterioration, etc. of the internal working fluid. Taking this into consideration, selecting a size which is 20 to 40% affordable against the amount of absorbed energy is recommended.

    6. Reaction forceIn general, the values of reaction force (reactive force gener-ated during operation) generated by the operating speed will vary in oil hydraulic shock absorber. The RJ series can adapt to such this fast/slow speed and can absorb shock smoothly in a wide range of speed.But, take note the stroke time could be long, and the motion would not be smooth, etc., depending on the operating condi-tions. If this would be a problem, we recommend the stroke amount should be restricted by using our optional component “stopper nut”, etc.

    Back page 3

    Operating Environment

    Danger1. Operation in an environment which requires explo-

    sion-proof• When mounting in places where static electricity is accumu-

    lated, implement a distribution of electrical energy by grounding.

    • Do not use the materials for buffer face which might cause to spark by collision.

    Warning1. Pressure

    Do not use the product in the vacuum state which is substan-tially different from the atmospheric pressure (above sea lev-el) and in the atmosphere under being pressurized.

    2. Using inside a clean roomDo not use the product in a clean room, as it could contamin-ate the clean room.

    Caution1. Temperature range

    Do not use the product, exceeding the specified allowable temperature range. Seal could be softened or hardened or worn out, or leading to working fluid leak, deterioration, or buffer characteristic changes.

    2. Deterioration by atmosphereDo not use the product in the presence of salt damage, sulfur-ous acid gas which makes the metal corroded, or solvent which makes the seal deteriorated.

    3. Deterioration by ozoneDo not use the product under the direct sunlight on the beach, or by the mercury lamp, or the ozone generator, because the rubber material will be deteriorated by ozone.

    4. Cutting oil, water, blown dustDo not use the product under the condition where the liquid such as cutting oil, water, solvent, etc. is exposed either di-rectly or in atomized form to the piston rod, or where blown dust could be adhered around the piston rod. This could cause malfunction.

    5. VibrationWhen vibrations are applied on an impacting material, imple-ment a secure guide on the impacting material.

    Load

    Mounting

    Caution1. Tightening torque and mounting thread

    When threading on the mounting frame in order to mount a shock absorber directly, refer to the below prepared hole dimensions. Observe the below tightening torque of a nut for shock absorber.If the tightening torque exceeds the below value, the shock absorber could be damaged.When a shock absorber is mounted on a cylinder, follow the torque values listed on each cylinder.

    6. Adjust the stopping time by using a stopper nut.Control the stopping time of the impacting material by turning the stopper nut in or out (thus changing length “a”). After es-tablishing the stopper nut position, use a hexagon nut to se-cure the stopper nut in place.

    Allowable eccentric angle θ1 < 3°

    2. Deviation of impactMount the shock absorber so that the point of contact of an impacting material must be within the allowable eccentric an-gle range. If the eccentric angle exceed 3°, an excessive load could be placed on the bearings, resulting in oil leak in a short time.

    4. Do not scratch the sliding portion of the piston rod or the outside threads of the outer tube.Failure to observe this precaution could scratch or gouge the sliding potion of the piston rod, or damage the seals, resulting in oil leak or malfunction. Furthermore, damage to outside threaded portion of the outer tube could prevent the shock ab-sorber from being mounted onto the frame, or result in mal-function by internal component parts deformation.

    5. Never turn the screw on the bottom of the body. This is not an adjusting screw. Otherwise, oil leak could occur.

    Maintenance

    Caution1. Confirm that the mounting nut is not loosen.

    The shock absorber could be damaged if used in a loosen state.

    2. Pay attention to any abnormal impact sounds or vi-brations.If impact sounds or vibrations become abnormally high, the shock absorber may reach the end of its service life. Replace the shock absorber. If using continuously in such a state, equipment could be damaged.

    3. Confirm that there is no oil leak on the outer sur-face.When a large amount of oil is leaking, replace the product, be-cause it is believed to be happening something wrong with it. If using continuously in such a state, equipment could be damaged.

    4. Check for cracks and wear in caps.For shock absorbers with caps, the caps will wear out first. Replace caps early to prevent damage to colliding objects.

    Caution1. Position of the piston rod during storage

    If the product is stored for an extended period (30 days or more) with the piston rod pushed, the absorption capacity could decrease. Avoid this kind of storage condition.

    Caution1. As a guide, the maximum operating life of the prod-

    uct (number of cycles) when operated within the specifications is as follows.3 million cycles RJ08��, 10��, 14��Note) This value (adequate replacement period) is at room temperature (20

    to 25°C). The life can depend on conditions such as temperature so the product may need to be replaced before the above number of cycles is reached.
