TMC showcased its active and passive floor vibration isolation systems at Photonics West 2022, demonstrating their effectiveness and superiority in managing floor vibrations. A practical demonstration, the ‘wine glass demo’, was particularly noteworthy. In this experiment, two glasses of wine were placed, one on an isolated surface and the other on a non-isolated shelf. As the floor was shaken using a mechanical shaker, the audience could observe the significantly reduced impact on the isolated surface. This demonstration underlined TMC’s capabilities in vibration control, providing tangible evidence of how effectively their systems can attenuate floor vibration. The event highlighted TMC’s continuous drive for excellence and their commitment to providing state-of-the-art vibration control solutions. Their presence at booth 1639 at Photonics West was an excellent opportunity for visitors to engage with the team and experience their cutting-edge technology firsthand.

What if I bump into, or step on, a platform supported by STACIS, what happens? Wes Wigglesworth short answer: almost nothing. Thanks to the hard-mount active vibration control system in STACIS, the active control is downward looking, which means that it is measuring and cancelling floor vibration. In layman’s terms, that means you would need […]
