Energy absorption in a compact and uniform way: The TS (TUBUS soft) profile dampers are also manufactured from co-polyester elastomer. Due to the almost linear damping characteristic curve, the maintenance-free, ready-to-install components softly absorb the energy with minimum stress on the machine. Consistent damping is helped by the low temperature increase of the material during operation.

The TS product family impresses with maximum energy absorption within a range of 17.7 in-lbs to 8,549 in-lbs (2 Nm to 966 Nm) within a minimum height. The space-saving design has been implemented from Ø 0.55"" to Ø 4.21"" (Ø 14 mm to Ø 107 mm). The special screw supplied is used to simply and quickly secure the profile dampers in place.

Application Examples

TUBUS-TS - Braking system of maintenance boats
TUBUS-TS - Braking system of maintenance boats
The maintenance of wind turbines in open seas has long resulted in damage to maintenance boats. Because of impact velocity and swell, an increase in the boat's mass of up to 20 percent must be taken into account when landing on a rigid mooring structure. It is only since the landing operation has been carried out with the aid of the ACE company's TUBUS series that cable repair and maintenance ...
TUBUS-TS - Space treadmill
TUBUS-TS - Space treadmill
When training in zero gravity, a harness with bungee cords is used to ensure that trainees do not become disengaged. Three ACE profile dampers with a linear-working facility are utilized in this case. One TUBUS is positioned in the pneumatic cylinder, while the other two are put in place in the rest of the system. All the dampers have the task of protecting the system if the treadmill drive ...

Application Areas

  • Linear slides
  • Pneumatic cylinders
  • Handling modules
  • Machines and plants
  • Swivel units
  • Electro-mechanical drives
  • Crane systems
  • Conveyor systems
Suitable for emergency stop and permanent applications, the cost-effective, durable TUBUS TS can be used as end position dampers in linear axes, in tool making and tool machines and in hydraulic, pneumatic and handling equipment.
