Gas Springs

JWF Technologies is the largest North American distributor of Stabilus gas springs, sometimes referred to as gas shocks. We take pride in this distinction, because Stabilus gas springs are high quality and time-tested. In fact, Stabilus invented the world’s first standard production gas spring and is now the world’s largest manufacturer of gas springs, making over 450,000 springs a day. Stabilus gas springs line has products that can address all your needs, including locking and non-locking springs and dampers.


Do you need a specific motion control application for a project you're working on? JWF Technologies provides design assistance for motion control applications utilizing Stabilus gas springs, locking springs, and hydraulic dampers. Our patented 'einbau' software allows us to provide detailed information on mounting points, handle loads, temperature compensation and life expectancy in our simulation



  • Lift Assist with LIFT-O-MAT gas springs  for both automotive and industrial uses
  • Locking with BLOC-O-LIFT gas springs  options for a rigid or elastic lock, and various types of mounts
  • Dampening with STAB-O-SHOC hydraulic dampers - to dampen both motion and vibration
