Festo shock absorbers are components that are used to stop a moving load slowly and smooth. They do this by compressing air or oil under pressure to be able to provide a soft cushion or dampening effect. The compressed air or pressurised oil is then forced through a series of internal valves which restricts the flow. They convert kinetic energy of the load, which is then dissipated into the atmosphere. Festo shock absorbers can be pneumatic or hydraulic and are used within a wide variety of industrial and commercial applications.
