The Vibrostop G-Pad series of anti-vibration mounts can support from 250daN to 100kN (~250kg - 10 tonnes) per pad
This oil and solvent resistant product combines the convenience of ordinary rubber tiles with, through the aluminium frame, the reliability of a rubber/metal anti-vibration support. This frame has the dual function of protecting the elastomeric component and redistributing the concentrated load.
The G series anti-vibration mounts are commonly used to isolate the vibrations generated by industrial machinery, presses and air-conditioning units when a mechanical fixing between the machine and the support surface is not necessary.
The G/DS version can be used to increase the isolation and hence reduce transmissibility through the addition of a second layer of rubber damping elements, which reduces the natural frequency of the suspension to about 4-5 Hz.
It is popular for a range of applications including industrial presses and hammers.
This pad comes in 6 sizes (see image for drawing), and two rubber hardnesses per size:
Standard products have an aluminium alloy structure which holds the nitrile rubber (oil and solvent resistant) elements in place.
A bonded rubber matt (BPD) or steel plate (PA) can be added to help support or spread the load, if required. The steel plate has a hemispherical recess centrally located, this is to accept a point load. See images for further information.
This mount would normally sit on a firm level surface, with the machine sat on top of it. There are no fixing points (e.g. bolt holes or threaded elements) built into this product.
