What are vibration mounts and why are they needed?


Vibration isolation mounts protect machinery by reducing the amplitude and frequency of vibrational waves. Applications such as large motors and industrial machines generate powerful vibrations and excessive noise when active. Those vibrations cause damage to the equipment and create unsafe working conditions. Eventually this adversely affects product quality and can even bring production to a stop.


Vibration damping mounts are commonly made with an elastomer such as natural rubber which is then bonded to metal. Acting like a shock absorber, our vibration mounts allow motors and machines to operate more quietly and efficiently.


Common mount applications include: Pumps, Hoppers, Roll Mills, Cameras, CNC Machinery, Military Equipment, Washing Machines, Industrial Boat Engines, Small Electric Motors, HVAC Systems, Vibrating Tables, Aviation Equipment, Compressors, Transformers, Shipping Containers, Defense Equipment and Marine Propulsion Engines.
