Most industrial automation systems produce motion and in turn vibration. Kinetic energy is usually released when the direction of these motions are changed or stopped entirely, and this energy is what causes the vibrations and shock impacts to happen.
Sudden shocks in an automation system can be damaging to the machine and its various components, as well as to the product being processed or manufactured by the machine. Even lesser impactful vibrations can cause damage or fatigue to the machinery and its parts if consistently applied over time.
This is why dampers and absorbers are crucial components of any automation system producing vibrations and shocks.
As well as shock absorbers and vibration dampers, vibration reduction technology also includes the likes of spring isolators, air springs and elastomeric isolators. All such devices help minimise damage and reduce equipment downtime to save costs and maximise production.
AMC Mecanocaucho Anti-Vibration Mounts
Anti-vibration and noise isolation specialists AMC Mecanocaucho have been manufacturing noise and vibration solutions combining rubber, metal, springs and their proprietary Sylomer material since 1969.
The BRBX Captive AMC Mecanocaucho Anti-Vibration Mount is one of the company’s popular models and is available for fast and free shipping all over the UK and around the world through AMC Mecanocaucho suppliers such as YB Components.
AMC Mecanocaucho manufacture the BRBX Captive anti-vibration mounts with high profile compressed rubber elements to absorb and deflect heavy shocks and vibrations. It is ideal for applications where vibration isolation is crucial to the continued optimal performance of the machine. It is especially suited to the task of isolating mobile or rotating machines exposed to axial and radial impacts.
The BRBX models that AMC Mecanocaucho manufacture are also designed to be resilient to oil and exposure to the elements. A metal hood on the top protects the shock-absorbing rubber element underneath and has a cross-shaped indentation that redirects fluids such as oil away from the rubber element. The BRBX anti-vibration mounts available through AMC Mecanocaucho suppliers are also highly resistant to corrosion thanks to their stainless steel housing.
AMC Mecanocaucho Spring Mounts
The spring mounts produced by AMC Mecanocaucho are excellent at isolating reciprocating or rotating parts. Such parts tend to create a lot of vibration through the imbalance of their moving components. The problems caused by such vibrations include a significant reduction in the machine’s lifespan through fatigue and the wear and tear of its parts.
There is also the possibility of the vibration being transferred to adjacent machinery or structures that are not isolated from the shocks and vibrations being created. This can lead to a multitude of problems beyond the machine itself as well as within. This is why it is so important to use the likes of AMC’s spring mounts for machinery isolation.
AMC Mecanocaucho manufacture several anti-seismic spring mounts for different applications. They come with a variety of deflection ratings and frequencies, with all of their damping products ideal for isolating machinery and protecting it from the long term damage of vibrational impacts.
