Micro-g Air Isolators for In-Tool Applications

  • Overview +

    TMC pneumatic vibration isolation systems are the solution of choice for tool designers seeking superior vibration isolation of ultra-precision instruments. TMC now offers our industry standard Gimbal Piston®, MaxDamp®, and UltraDamp™ isolators in a convenient range of capacities, damping levels and leveling versions to suit a wide-range of applications.

    Ideal for OEM applications, these isolators are offered in a modular, interchangeable, and upgradable design. And, to ensure you specify a version that will meet your settling time and isolation requirements, TMC engineers can model your configuration with our “Moving Stage Application Model.”

  • The TMC Advantage +

    Designed specifically for OEM applications 

    Supporting payloads ranging from 90 kg to 8,200 kg (200 to 18,000 lb.)

    Delivers a high level of vibration attenuation, even in quiet environments

    Multiple levels of damping to choose from

    Multiple versions of height control 

    Isolator designs are interchangeable. Easily accommodates changes of requirements without costly tool redesign
