Anti-vibration mounts are used for reducing or entirely eliminating vibration and noise caused by a machine’s operation. They are usually made from rubber and metal and will be attached to the machine either on or near the bottom.
They are useful
additions to powerful machinery used across a wide range of sectors including
many different types of industrial machinery, air conditioners, compressors and
power generators, as well as with many types of military and medical equipment.
Benefits of Anti-Vibration Mounts
might think that anti-vibration mounts are an unnecessary extra, but they have
many benefits which make them worthwhile. They are useful in industries using
sensitive equipment as well as those using heavy machinery, as they absorb both
low and high frequency vibrations across a variety of applications.
They are usually
easy to mount, and immediately reduce the noise and vibration, making operation
easier and safer and extending the lifespan of the application.
especially advisable on handheld machines where their absorption of the
vibrations help prevent issues like Hand Arm Vibration Syndrome
(HAVS), which is caused by using vibrating hand tools. HAVS causes a peripheral
neuropathy of the hands resulting in numbness, tingling and a loss of
dexterity. Even worse, use of such tools for an extended time can lead to
Vibration White Finger, which manifests as an blanching of the fingers starting
at the tip of one or more fingers and ultimately spreading down into the palm.
Using vibrating hand tools without an anti-vibration mount can also cause a
variety of musculoskeletal problems.
Anti-Vibration Mount Designs
mounts are good noise dampeners and vibration isolators and can handle a good
variety of high and low frequencies. They work for both passive and active
vibrations and are able to limit structure-generated noise. Cylindrical mounts
are usually made with stainless steel and heavy-duty rubber.
are also made from metal and bonded rubber and they are great at absorbing
extreme dynamic and static vibration across a wide variety of applications. The
bushings of these mount consist of an inner and outer sleeve made of a heavy
rubber compound. These sleeves are able to support heavy loads while reducing
or eliminating high frequency vibrations.
are a fairly recent innovation and are particularly effective for operations
with extreme noise and vibration reduction requirements. Conical mounts can
also handle very heavy loads and are advisable in applications that experience excessive G-force effects.
