NOTE: If final (impact) velocity cannot be calculated directly, a reasonable guideline to use is 2X average velocity.
When 2 shock absorbers are ordered, the MXP will be assembled with NO internal cushions.
Adjusting the Cushion Needle
Adjust the cushion needle in the cylinder heads carefully to obtain proper deceleration for your particular application. Proper cushion needle adjustment is achieved when the carrier reaches the end of travel at a velocity approaching zero. If the carrier reaches the end of stroke at velocity, then the cushion needs to be increased by turning the cushion needle screw clockwise. If the carrier stalls or bounces (quickly oscillating directions) before it reaches the end of stroke, then the cushion needs to be decreased by turning the cushion needle screw counterclockwise. Improper cushion adjustment may cause premature failure of the actuator. Call Tolomatic with any questions.
