The profiled absorber type TA, from ACE's innovative TUBUS series, is a self-contained element made from a special Co-Polyester elastomer and requires no maintenance.
The decreasing damping characteristic results in high energy absorption at the beginning of the stroke. The excellent characteristics of the material give it satisfactory efficiency over a temperature range from -40 °C to 90 °C. The low installed mass, the economical price and the possible service life of up to 1 million cycles make it an attractive alternative to hydraulic limit switches if the moving mass does not have to stop in a specific position and if it is not necessary to dissipate 100% of the energy.
The compact size of the range extends from Ø 12 mm to Ø 116 mm and is very simple and quick to install with the special screw/spacer that is supplied. The TA series has been specially developed to provide maximum energy capacity in minimum space for a capacity range from 2 Nm to 2951 Nm.
The service life is extremely high: up to 20 times longer than polyurethane buffers, up to 10 times longer than rubber buffers and up to 5 times longer than steel springs.
