Three pneumatic levelling mounts of the type PLM-1 from the ACEolator family enable a mobile 3D HDD projector used by an opera company in Wales to produce razor-sharp images

Isolate low-frequency vibrations

In an opera production a 3D HDD projector was supposed to project images onto the stage during performances. Standing as it did on a trolley, which was to be moved over a tiled floor, the projector was virtually unusable. The problem was solved by combining an increase in the projector frame to 10 kg with the assembly of pneumatic levelling mounts of the type PLM-1. PLM, as part of the ACEolator family, is designed to operate in the low frequency range and is used primarily where perfect isolation of measurement tables, testing equipment and high-performance machines is required.

SLAB plates eliminate vibration from 490-kg transformers and also contribute to significant noise reduction

Effective against sound and vibrations

Interference frequencies in a switch cabinet caused two parallel-connected transformers to vibrate so much that working quietly in adjacent rooms was all but impossible. Because they stood on the ground, it was their weight that caused office staff who worked in the same building to feel the effects first hand. The resulting noise was equally bad. ACE-SLAB plates of the type SL-170-25 Fxxxx reduced the vibration levels of the transformers by 91 percent. Through this application, a pleasant working environment has now been established.

Flex Locs increase safety when launching lifeboats because the small rubber-metal isolators protect the construction from rust and reduce vibration in the housing

More protection through robust Flex Locs

In the present case, when compared to screw connections, the modern quick connection elements produced by ACE have a distinct advantage: their material makes them resistant to the most diverse range of aggressive media, including salt water. Because of this, they provide protection to the housings which encase emergency pressure canisters that are used for the launch of lifeboats. In the most innocuous scenario, the housings would lose their stability through the effects of rust. In the worst case, damage to the pressure canisters could occur or to the entire davit construction.

PAL, the pneumatic isolators with automatic level control produced by ACE, provide this measuring machine with optimal vibration isolation due to their naturally low frequencies

Decoupling of ambient vibrations

Measurements made on a glass measuring table led to unusable results because the isolator used was unable to cope with the lateral stiffness of the products used. Only low-frequency pneumatic isolators with automatic level control of the type PAL 21-6 ACE could provide a remedy. A special feature of these membrane pneumatic isolators lies in the level control valve, which has, by virtue of its construction, an above-average longevity. Relatively large acceleration forces can lead to horizontal movements and it is particularly in such situations that the robustness and durability of the isolation system make a significant contribution.
