Enertrols, Inc., was founded in 1973 to design and manufacture high-performance industrial hydraulic shock absorbers. Recognizing the need for a shock absorber with the ability to withstand the high cycle rates of modern automated manufacturing lines, we designed and built our first shocks to do just that. These high-quality shocks were sturdy enough to operate over a long period of time under all kinds of adverse conditions with little, or no, maintenance.
As a result, Enertrols (our name combines Energy and Controls) has grown from a small local manufacturer to a position as a leading international supplier of deceleration devices to all major industries.
The introduction of our Gold Line?Series gave industry a proven source of reliable and rugged high-performance shock absorbers. Enertrols began setting the pace with an industry 'first' with its debut of the high-capacity Gold Line?Series in 1983. A year later, we introduced the first Prox Shock? which featured an on-board proximity sensor.
Mounting Stop Collars (MSC? and Positive Stop Collars (PSC? for Gold Line?shocks were added in 1986. They were followed in 1988 by our unique SILVERLINE?Series, industry's first low-velocity shock absorber, capable of working efficiently in slow-moving, high effective weight conditions.
Enertrols large 4' Bore Series and a line of Standard Mounting Plates & Brackets for Primary Mount Series shock absorbers, were new items in 1989.
To kick off the '90s, Enertrols introduced a new series of miniature, full threaded-body, adjustable shock absorbers. Double-acting Dampers and other special-purpose shock absorbers were also new in 1990. That same year saw us introduce a milestone in our industry; the first Five-Year Warranty on industrial hydraulic shock absorbers, covering our Gold Line?and SILVERLINE? Series.
1993 saw the addition of a line of non-adjustable, miniature, 'self-compensating' shock absorbers, featuring full threaded-body design in five series and 12 different models; expanded to six series and 18 models in 1998. A new High Precision metric series of Gold Line?Fixed Flange shock absorbers will become available late in 1998.
