Profile Dampers

Compact size and strong force absorption

Axial Damping
Energy capacity 6.0 Nm/cycle
Stroke max. 7 mm

Very efficient energy guzzlers: The TA profile dampers from the ACE TUBUS-Series are maintenance-free and ready to install. They consist of co-polyester elastomer; a material that only heats up slightly and ensures consistent damping. The TA models absorb a lot of energy at the start of the stroke.

The TA family has been specially developed for maximum energy absorption within a range of 2 Nm to 2,951 Nm. The minimum height is thanks to the space-saving shape with Ø 12 mm to Ø 116 mm. The dampers can be very easily and quickly fixed with the provided special screw.
