Optimum tuning for any design
ACE universal damping solutions convert kinetic energy in to heat. This makes machines
faster, quieter, more durable, lighter, and therefore more competitive and profitable. Here
you will find the perfect selection of machine elements, which turn damaging forces
into harmless heat. These solutions from ACE smoothly decelerate moving loads. This
involves the lowest possible stress on machines, which makes the damping products from
ACE so valuable.
Custom control of hand forces
The ACE products in this segment enhance the quality of any type of movement. Anyone
who wants to raise or lower loads, regulate the feed of an object to the precise millimeter or
gently decelerate rotating or linear movements will find the right solution here. ACE delivers
industry leading quality. Our innovative solutions correspond with stringent requirements for
ergonomics and individuality, including custom pressurized gas springs.
Isolate unwanted vibrations
This ACE product group includes innovative solutions to provide customers with the
best assistance in isolation technology and vibration isolation. These machine elements
are also distinguished by their light design and wide variety. The product range extends
from extremely low frequency isolating pneumatic leveling mounts to ready-to-install
rubber-metal isolators and damping pads. With this portfolio, ACE is capable of offering
you customized vibration isolation for almost any application.
Protection for all machine designs under any condition
This ACE product group provides emergency braking to safely slow down moving loads
and reduce damaging forces. Although the safety shock absorbers, TUBUS elastomer bumpers, and clamping elements differ so much in design, every single ACE component provides the best protection for your machine. They demonstrate their main advantages in
Safety Products emergency stop situations and, based on the protection they provide, are
very cost-effective. Furthermore, they can all be easily integrated into existing designs
and largely work independent of energy supplies.
CUSTOM PRODUCT DESIGN & DEVELOPMENT
We offer a wide range of options to solve your motion and vibration challenges. Each
product undergoes rigorous lab testing to ensure products are capable of meeting the
most demanding conditions. Products are regularly evaluated for endurance, cycle life,
