Piston compressor for TM 182 (TM 182.01)

Piston compressor for TM 182 (TM 182.01)

as a “real machine”, the piston compressor generates vibrations for the trainer TM 182



  • 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 182.01compressor 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 182.01is 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.
