A piston compressor is a typical machine, on which imbalance and oscillating masses generate vibrations. Balancing the “machine” does not adequately reduce these vibrations. In this case, a vibration isolating machine foundation helps to avoid unwanted vibrations from being transmitted to the surroundings.
The TM 182.01 compressor is used as a model of a “real machine” for the trainer TM 182. The compressor is only used here as a “machine” that generates vibrations on the foundation. The compressed air generation function is not used.
The TM 182.01 is available as a complete assembly and consists of a single cylinder compressor with integrated motor. To generate vibrations with different frequencies, the compressor is fitted with a frequency converter.
