20 engineers and scientists, few organizations
can claim to have an understanding of floor vibration comparable
to ours. Furthermore, few companies our size can claim to match TMC’s
in-depth knowledge of metal fabrication techniques
and state-of-the-art manufacturing processes. Yet, it is the combination
of these two assets that sets TMC head and shoulders above any other
company in our field.
Many who tour the our facility are surprised
to see how far we have vertically integrated our factory. For the
vast majority of our products, we literally start with 16-ft long
sheet steel. In this era of specialization, core capabilities,
and sub-contracting, we have maintained our mission as the leading
experts in the design and manufacture of precision vibration control

allow TMC to provide rounded corners and special cutouts for our
CleanTop tops and prepare the top skins for subsequent
automated drilling and tapping. Apart from CleanTop tops, many of our other standard and custom parts are processed
through these centers.
of the many steps in the CleanTop manufacturing
process, this machine deburrs the sheet and produces a non-reflective “orbital” finish.
The sheet is subsequently cleaned in our TMC-designed industrial
washing center. The finished sheet is completely free of cutting
oil and debris, even in the threaded holes.
machine is among the many unique and novel tools at TMC. Designed
and manufactured internally, this device facilitates the rapid placement
of the patented CleanTop cups in a precise, repeatable
pattern. The device feeds and indexes cups from a syntron-feeder
to either a metric or imperial pattern matrix.
The grid of 72 cups is then lifted and placed
using a special template.

Not at TMC.
Our highly experienced mechanics operate state-of-the-art
CNC press-brakes, laser/turret-punch machines, punch presses, folding
machines, and other dedicated machinery. Their expertise allows
us to provide fully integrated vibration isolation solutions,
not simply modules and catalog items.

System 1 and 63-500 Series posts demonstrate TMC’s innovative
design philosophy. When a tubular steel shaped post is required
to house an air isolator, most competitive designs start with cut-to-length
steel square tube. TMC starts with a flat steel sheet or plate then
lasers, punches, bends, and welds to form the part.
This approach has four major advantages:
- Flat steel is much less expensive than tube
- Flat steel can be laser-cut or sheared to length.
Tube steel must be saw-cut, which is expensive and imprecise.
- Tube steel has very poor dimensional tolerance
and is only nominally square. Formed parts are precise.
- Any required holes can be punched or laser-cut
in the flat prior to bending. This is much less expensive than
