PEPS® II-VX is an isolation system co-developed for ultra-precision machining by Precitech and industry experts TMC. PEPS® II-VX is a digitally operated, non-contacting, height control and active vibration cancellation system.
The system is available either as part of a new Preicitech machine, or as a retrofit on an existing Precitech system.
PEPS® II-VX uses Precitech’s established pneumatic vibration isolation technology to remove the need for a mechanical height control valve and height sensing linkage. This allows PEPS® II-VX to be the first ever active on-machine system for precision leveling and vibration isolation.
- Increases in productivity
- Active vibration canceling provides isolation in the 0.7 Hz to 5 Hz range
- Leveling allows XZC machining to happen faster and at a higher quality
- Can be installed as an option on new machines, or as an upgrade on existing machines
