What are they?
Pieces of equipment and machinery subjected to noise, shocks and vibrations can be extremely damaged, affecting their lifespan, efficiency and safety. This can often lead to more frequent repairs and replacements, increasing costs for the company or individual. Anti Vibration Mountings and Rubber Mounts tackle this by providing excellent shock absorption and vibration dampening properties. This ability makes them widely used and they can be found in industries ranging from the defense sector to renewable energy and power generation.
When to use them?
Rubber Mountings can provide vibration and shock protection in three separate directions. They also provide high levels of resistance to grease and oil making them a popular choice in both the automotive and marine industry. Rubber mounts can often be found in both engines and generators.
