Industrial Shock Absorbers and Anti-Vibration Mounts
Written by [google_authorship] on 6th December 2019
equipment often experiences an abundance of shocks and impacts, either as a
result of the usual applications or as unexpected loads suddenly occurring
because of a deviation in the operational process.
shocks are pre-empted during the design phase of the equipment, with special
shock absorbing materials incorporated into its manufacture. Additional
shock-absorbing and vibration-dampening components can be integrated afterwards
to help minimise the forces caused by shock loads and constant operational
Types of Shock-Absorbers and Anti-Vibration Mounts
purpose of any shock reduction component is to absorb or deflect kinetic energy
away from the load as it stops, sometimes converting it into thermal energy
which is then dissipated as heat. This process prevents the kinetic energy created
by the shock caused by an impact or ongoing vibration from rattling through the
entire machine and structure, increasing its exposure to wear and tear.
technology such as shock absorbers can be integrated for use with both
rotary and linear loads. There are different designs that can also be
specifically used for loads that roll, slide or drop onto an collection
are pneumatic cushions which convert kinetic energy into thermal energy. This
type of shock absorber features a stopping force that is non-linear, which
means the stopping mechanism increases sharply at the end of the stopping
stroke, due to the compressible air of the pneumatic cushion running out
(though hopefully the device has done its job by this point!).
reduction technology includes the likes of simple springs and rubber bumpers,
with these usually absorbing the kinetic energy
before releasing it back into the load via a rebound or bounce of the energy.
This action makes them useful shock absorbers for slowing down or even
completely stopping a load’s movement.
Linear Industrial Shock Absorbers
A lot of heavy
industrial machinery require linear shock absorbers, which basically means
there is no rebound or bounce at the end of the load deceleration process. Not
instigating a bounce in response to the load’s stop means such linear shock
absorbers can stop heavy loads faster than non-linear dampening mechanisms.
They also stop loads smoother and in a more predictable way.
AMC Anti-Vibration Mounts
anti-vibration mount is a speciality of manufacturer AMC Mecanocaucho. They
have designed and built multiple variations including the BRBX Captive
anti-vibration mounts which features compressed rubber anti-vibration elements.
The rubber sections of this model have a high profile which helps to deflect the
shock from large impacts.
The range of AMC
Anti-Vibration Mounts also includes the BRB Captive and BSB Engine models. These
AMC Mecanocaucho anti-vibration mounts are usually used with applications where
vibration isolation is a top priority, such as with the likes of ventilators,
compressors, pumps and industrial vehicles.
