End-Stops & Buffers

End stops and buffers are commonplace in docks and ports, at the end of rails accommodating cranes and railway lines delivering bulk material or cargo to a port. They are also used in factories and steel mills with cranes and major machinery to remove some of the high stresses endured by the buildings when cranes reach their destination. Very occasionally, moving equipment can fail to stop or slow down sufficiently, resulting in a risk of collision or overriding the end of the platform/line. Fitting efficient and effective end stops protects passengers, rolling stock and infrastructure in the events that trains or cranes fail to stop.

GANTREX ENERGY ABSORBING HYDRAULIC BUMPERS

Gantrex and Oleo International’s bumpers/buffers are designed for the harshest heavy-duty applications. Featuring a fatigue-less gas return spring and the most efficient fluid metering pin system on the market, our hydraulic bumper controls the deceleration of rail-mounted material handling equipment. Regardless of crane size or travel speed, we have come up with a market leading solution that offers the required protection to control-stop all rail-mounted equipment whilst minimizing the end forces resulting from impact.

In addition, for much smaller moving equipment, we are also able to supply a line of hydraulic bumpers (GCB Series) and rubber buffers.

Buffers

Hydraulic buffers are available in different types and capacities to suit the differences of weight, speed and movement of cranes or moving machinery.  The correct buffer selection not only depends on those mechanical engineering considerations but also on mounting and operating environment contingencies.
