SLM - Air suspension systems for machine support

The EFFBE series for vibration reduction and receiver isolation for false ceiling installation

Air Suspension Element SLM

Our air suspension element without viscous damper

Due to its low natural frequency, the SLM air spring element is ideally suited for source and receiver isolation and for solving vibration problems in false ceiling installations.

Our air spring element SLM features low-frequency source and receiver isolation. For measuring machines and measuring tables in control rooms, therefore, these air suspension units are just as much the first choice as when supporting fans, air conditioning units, automatic punching presses and nibbling machines. Air supply is via a standard car tyre valve. Wherever vibration problems are particularly severe, the optionally available, self-regulating level control is used as an alignment element: It is available in mechanical-pneumatic and electro-pneumatic versions.
