The TS type profiled absorber, from ACE's innovative TUBUS series, is a self-contained element made from a special Co-Polyester elastomer and requires no maintenance. It results in a practically linear damping characteristic, a very gentle absorption of energy and a minimum reaction force on the machine. The excellent material characteristics gives it satisfactory efficiency over a temperature range of -40 °C to 90 °C. The low installation mass, the economic price and the possible service life of up to 1 million cycles makes 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 14 mm to Ø 107 mm and is very simple and quick to install with the special screw/spacer that is supplied. The TS series has been specially developed to provide maximum energy capacity in a minimum space requirement, with a capacity range from 2 Nm to 966 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.
