MC75 Miniature Shock Absorbers

Aug. 13, 2021
ACE Controls’ MC75 miniature shock absorbers provide high-energy damping in tight spaces.

The MC75 Family of miniature shock absorbers provides high-energy damping in tight installation spaces in industrial manufacturing, material handling, packaging, medical, electronics, and robotics applications.


Machine designers across these and other industries are often tasked with decelerating loads quickly and without recoil in their machines. However, machine designs don’t always allow for a full-size damper. And, the damper must be easy to install. The MC75 features an energy capacity of 75 in.-lb. per cycle and 250,000 in.-lb. per hour. Available in weight ranges from 0.5 to 2.5 lb. through 55 to 160 lb., units have a very short length of 2.77 in. They also feature a 0.40-in. stroke length and deliver low return forces.


ACE miniature shock absorbers include a reliable construction and a one-piece outer body filled with temperature-stable oil. They’re also self-compensating—able to react to changing energy conditions without adjustment.
