TMC’s 63-500 Series High-Performance Lab Tables provide an excellent vibration-free working surface for loads up to 350 lb (160 kg). Now with modular construction, these tables are recommended for use in such diverse applications as electrophysiology, cell injection, ultramicrotomy, photomicroscopy, scanning tunnel microscopy, and confocal laser scanning microscopy
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.
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.
