Wednesday, June 18, 2008

PEABODY, Massachusetts, –Technical Manufacturing Corporation's new TableTop PZT™ is an active hard-mount vibration cancellation system that is ideal for small precision instruments, particularly those instruments in buildings where floor vibration is severe.

Incorporating TMC’s patented STACIS® technology, the cost-effective TableTop PZT features a lightweight, compact design; extended stroke piezoelectric actuators; sub-Hz vibration cancellation, both vertical and horizontal; and it has no soft air suspension. The TableTop PZT has a payload capacity up to 300 lbs.

“TMC continues to employ advancing technology to develop new products that solve the challenging demands that ambient building floor vibration places on precision instruments,” said Steve Ryan, TMC vice president, marketing. “The TableTop PZT is a simple, robust bench-top solution for the most sensitive small instruments.”

TMC designs and manufactures precision vibration isolation systems for research and manufacturing processes worldwide. The ISO 9001:2000-certified company’s products are industry standards in semiconductor manufacturing, life sciences, and photonics, and are also used in academic, industrial, and military research.
