    Ok, so we agree on limits. However, is extra dampening still required? Is limit not enough to prevent shaft damage?
    I'll PM you something.

    as far as I know these actuators are damaged if the internal shaft goes to work at full stroke. in the sense that the tree wants to go beyond the stroke of its cylinder. You limit the run with the software to limit that happening. they are mounted in a position where the maximum load does not exceed eighty kilos, the greater weight to support is under the seat and not under the feet so the effort they make remains within the correct usage parameters.
    other measures I do not think are necessary, I think that those who designed the t1000 and the use of these actuators have made some tests of resistance before selling it. now I do not remember but prosimu guarantees these actuators for many many hours of use.
    in conclusion I would say that the only important thing is to limit the axes to 80-85% and not go further.
    This is my opinion, you can confirm to Patrick.
