Features

Gimbal Piston Isolators
Our Patented Gimbal Piston™ Isolator has been proven by independent tests to consistently outperform the competition.  It achieves both horizontal and vertical isolation down to very low input levels

Thin-Wall Rolling Diaphragms
An integral part of the Gimbal Piston, the thin-wall, dacron-reinforced, rolling diaphragm air seals are only 0.020 in. (0.5 mm) thick and extremely flexible. They do not stiffen the spring as thicker rubber diaphragms do.

All-Aluminum Height Control Valves

All systems are equipped with rugged all-aluminum height control valves. Virtually unbreakable, they are finger adjustable with no need for tools. The standard model maintains height to ± 0.050 in. (±1 mm); the precision model, to ±0.005 in. (±0.1 mm).   

Internal Piston Travel Restraint
Unique in the industry, TMC provides husky, tamperproof, built-in piston travel restraints. The restraints are completely independent of the table valves and have been ram-tested at forces above those produced by the pistons operating at full pressure. They cannot be decoupled accidentally and do not interfere with setting up and using the table, but simply protect against overtravel without the use of external bars that create hazardous pinch points. Heavy loads, including the top plate, can be safely removed from a table in full operation.  

Tiebar Gussets

Exclusive TMC tiebar gussets increase table frame rigidity. They compensate for the elimination of the front tiebar in order to provide kneewell space.   

Rugged Built-in Leveling Feet
Table legs include built-in fine-thread 3 in. (75 mm) diameter screw jack levelers with 1/2 in. (13 mm) travel, provision for external adjustment and a handy adjustment wrench. The base is a solid, slightly domed shape to assure solid, wobble-free contact with sloping or irregular floors.   

Superior Table Tops
Our standard laminated tops provide an attractive stainless steel ferromagnetic working surface with highly damped, high stiffness construction at low cost. For applications requiring the ultimate stiffness and damping or mounting holes, specify our patented CleanTop® II honeycomb top.

Options and  Accessories
 
Front Support Bar
This adjustable steel rail mounts on the table's front legs. It has a slot in which the shelves mount, and is normally ordered with the armrest pads. The bar may be centered along the length of the table or cantilevered to suit your application.

Rear Support Bar
This adjustable rail mounts on the rear table legs and supports the rear end of the sliding shelves. It may also be cantilevered.

Padded Arm Rests
Adjustable leather forearm rests which fasten to the front support bar. A new armrest pad is now also available which fastens to the perimeter enclosure

Sliding Shelves
Shelves are made of wood with white plastic laminate covering all sides. A metal bracket on the front edge of the shelf fits into the slot in the front support bar. Shelves slide freely from side to side and are easily lifted off the support bars. Built-in stops prevent shelves from sliding out of slots. When ordering sliding shelves, you must order front and rear support bars.

Casters

A set of four retractable casters, with a total weight capacity of 1000 lbs (450 kg) can be mounted to the base of the table legs. See Ordering Chart.

Articulated ArmRest

Our rugged, leather Articulated ArmRest adds stability and comfort when delicate manipulations must be made without disturbing the isolated surface. Mounts to front support bar or perimeter enclosures.

Atriculated ArmRest
Raised Rear Shelf
The 14 in. (350 mm) deep raised rear shelf mounts on the full perimeter enclosure and is the length of the corresponding table top. The shelf is solidly supported 18 in. (450 mm) above the isolated surface with no direct noise transmission to the table top. NOTE: This shelf cannot be used with the Faraday Cage

Precision Height Control Valves

To minimize bottled air supply usage, standard TMC height control valves have a small "dead band," resulting in a height return accuracy of ±0.05 in. (±1.3 mm). Precision valves control height to within ±0.005 in. (0.13 mm) but have a slight, constant leak. To specify precision height control valves with a table, add the letter 'P' after the basic table model number. Precision valves may also be retrofit to installed tables.

Faraday Cages

The Type II Faraday Cage offers improved access and simplified assembly. The “window-shade” type retracting front panel is easier to operate than hinged doors and causes less disturbance when adjusted. This front panel may be positioned anywhere between fully opened and closed and stays in position without a fastener. The front door is shipped assembled and the entire unit may be assembled in a few minutes with a screwdriver (provided).

This cage incorporates the same stainless steel frame and copper-mesh material as previous versions. It mounts to (and requires) TMC’s full-perimeter enclosures and mounts to our 63-500 Series tables.

Faraday Cage on Table

Fixed Full Perimeter Enclosures

A fixed, welded-steel structure that completely surrounds the table top to provide non-isolated support for Faraday Cages, raised rear shelves Plexiglas enclosures and other special fixtures. Cannot be used with sliding shelves or support bars.
