Heavy machinery is often subject to high-frequency vibrations, which can cause instability and noise. To reduce these effects, anti-vibration pads are used. These pads are made of high quality rubber, which has extreme viscoelastic properties that allow it to absorb and dissipate energy without compromising its structural integrity. To better understand the advantages of anti-vibration solutions, let's consider the example of a washing machine. When functioning properly, the machine's moving parts, water movement, and clothes movement create a balanced system that is barely noticeable.
However, if something becomes unbalanced inside the machine, it can cause serious problems. The more unbalanced it is, the more movement will be generated, which can lead to the machine “walking around the room”.To prevent this from happening, there are two main solutions: inertia blocks and anti-vibration supports. Inertia blocks are placed under the machine and provide some isolation from the vibration due to the flexibility of the floor. Anti-vibration supports are usually made of thermoplastic elastomers (TPE) and reduce the amount of force transferred to the machine.Vibration isolation is important for many reasons in industrial settings.
It helps protect working parts from damage due to excessive vibration and shock, extends the lifespan of machinery, increases efficiency, and ensures safety. Rubber mounts provide protection against vibrations and shocks in three directions. To model this system, AMC-MECANOCAUCHO application engineers can help create a mathematical model of the system using multibody computing software. When selecting vibration isolators, it is necessary to calculate the total load of each anti-vibration mount in order to choose the right vibration isolator. Vibration isolators have many applications in industries such as food and pharmaceuticals. In conclusion, anti-vibration solutions for heavy machinery are essential for protecting workers and assets from potential harm caused by excessive vibration.
By using rubber vibratory supports and other vibration isolation systems, machines can be kept in balance and optimal performance can be achieved. The benefits of using anti-vibration solutions for heavy machinery are numerous. Not only do they help protect workers from potential harm caused by excessive vibration, but they also extend the lifespan of machinery, increase efficiency, and ensure safety. Additionally, they can be used in a variety of industries such as food and pharmaceuticals. With AMC-MECANOCAUCHO application engineers on hand to create a mathematical model of the system using multibody computing software, selecting the right vibration isolator is easy.
