High-level protection of linear modules
Safety shock absorbers produced by ACE are installed in the top linear system models of one of the most prestigious companies in the field of drive and control technology. Their job: to protect the z-axis from damage caused by uncontrolled movements. Various safety dampers are used for different load ranges. Tests have shown that, in the worst case, a collision speed of up to 5 m/s might occur. To be on the safe side, the interpretations were based in all cases on a slightly higher value.
Ideal for use in agricultural machinery
TUBUS bumpers give tele-wheel loaders strong stability. With their function of limiting swinging movement, they secure machines when cornering and loading and provide a high degree of comfort and safety as well as securing the loaders. A further advantage is that the shovel can be loaded up to its full capacity for better performance when levelling and pushing. Small cost, large force absorption: The TUBUS bumper TC design series employed here convinces with its energy absorption in the range of 3,983 in-lbs up to 112,626 in-lbs, whereby the machine elements with diameters of between 2.52 inch and 6.93 inch are very easily integrated into construction designs.
Safe driving in end positions with ACE
The aim was to protect a driving simulation capsule on two of its eight axes. The demands placed on a potential emergency stopper were high because it was clear that its failure would lead to massive damage to the complete construction as well as to the capsule. Even the possibility of damage to the health of the test personnel could not be ruled out and was taken into consideration in a diverse range of mass-speed combinations. Two ACE safety shock absorbers now safely contain destructive forces, e.g. during power outages, and eliminate high risks.
Controlled emergency stop
ACE safety shock absorbers protect precision assembly jigs for the aircraft industry. The basic mount of this coordinate measuring machine for the production of parts in the aircraft industry is made of granite and must not be damaged. To avoid damage from operating errors or mishandling, all movement axes were equipped with safety shock absorbers of the type SCS45-50. If the turntables malfunction the safety shock absorbers decelerate the loads before expensive damage can occur to the granite measuring tables.
