AMC Mecanocaucho Hydraulic Cones and Mounts


The range of AMC Mecanocaucho anti-vibration mounts is extensive and there are many excellent products available through AMC Mecanocaucho suppliers YB Components. Here we focus on the Hydraulic Cone Mount and Hydro Mount.

AMC Hydraulic Cone Mount

The AMC Mecanocaucho Hydraulic Cone Mount combines a spring component with a hydraulic shock absorber in the shape of a cone. This combination allows both components to be more accurately tuned to each other.

The combination also solves a big issue by incorporating both a low dampening coefficient with a high dampening coefficient. This provides this AMC machine mount with good vibration insulation from the low dampening coefficient, as well as excellent movement control from the high dampening coefficient. This enables the application operator to tailor the dynamic properties of the insulator to the individual requirements of the application.

The dampeners of these conical AMC Mecanocaucho anti-vibration mounts reduce vibration by enabling the hydraulic fluid to flow from one chamber to the next according to the movement of the rubber component. This flow of hydraulic fluid creates an energetic dissipation which dampens the vibration.

AMC Hydraulic Cone Mounts are commonly used to insulate the vibration in engines and cabs in off-road vehicles, especially those used in construction and agricultural machinery. They are popular among such rugged vehicles as they have the necessary resilience to achieve a high level of decoupling matched with the stability to withstand impacts. These AMC machine mounts prevent vehicles from rocking and provide a high level of comfort for the application operators.

These cone-shaped AMC Mecanocaucho anti-vibration mounts are also advantageous for variable speed applications within the resonance frequency range in normal operation as they significantly reduced the resonance.

AMC Hydro Mount

AMC Mecanocaucho Hydraulic Mounts use a combination of a spring and a hydraulic damper in a single compact unit. This enables the operator to tune the spring and damper independently of each other for extra flexibility when matching the dynamic characteristics of the isolator to the requirements of the application.

The internal structure of the AMC Hydro Mount uses a special system that bonds the rubber to the metal parts to prevent the dampening fluid leaking out when the mount is subjected to intense shocks.

As with the Hydraulic Cone Mounts, the AMC Hydro Mounts incorporate both a low dampening coefficient for good isolation with a high dampening coefficient for better motion control. The cavity containing the hydraulic fluid is divided into two chambers with an orifice between them which allows the fluid to flow between the chambers according to the motion of the elastomeric element. This flow of fluid dissipates the energy generated by an impact and thus dampens the subsequent vibrations.

Applications for AMC Hydro Mounts include those that need a soft isolator for good isolation but with significant motion control during shocks and impacts.
