Vibration and Shock Management

We can analyse your challenge, design a solution, and deliver it. We’ll manage your vibration and shock management needs.

At AVMR we care about your project as much as you do. We know the challenges that innovators face and the difference that the small details make. At AVMR We’ll conduct a thorough analysis of your problem that needs solving and find the best solution.

Whether we source or make from scratch with rapid prototyping, our knowledge and our analysis will ensure we find the right answers. We can iterate tools and products fast to ensure speed of delivery.

Need something bespoke?

We can supply bespoke and we’re fast. If you can’t find an off-the-shelf solution or you are simply unsure of your next step, bring us your challenge and we will analyse, design and specify an appropriate solution. We have a unique network of deep expertise which we rely on, and when required, a wide range of products and manufacturers we work with will ensure our solutions achieve the results you are looking for.

If we can’t source the right product, we can probably make it. Our partnerships in the fields of 3D printing and precision engineering means we can work with difficult shapes and we can do it precisely and productively.

Typical vibration absorption products

Bobbin Mounts

Bobbin mounts are one of the most versatile of all vibration isolators by virtue of their simplicity of construction and application. These mounts generally have a single fixing point on either side of a central rubber block. While we can spec and supply many off-the-shelf bobbins, we take pride in producing bespoke bobbins engineered to deliver specific vibration or shock absorption characteristics.

Most AVMR bobbins come in three forms: male-female, male-male and female-female although we can always produce something unique with its own specialist configuration just for you.

  • Versatile and adaptable
  • Easy to deploy
  • Many off-the-shelf variants available
  • Limitlessly alterable for your specific needs

These mounts can be surprisingly complex, if required. By varying the rubber properties, the rubber shape, or using cavities, absorption characteristics can be varied significantly.

Plate Mounts

When space is at a premium, a plate mount is the great option. These mounts exhibit a low profile allowing them to sit in tight spaces where the mounting surface and system to be vibration-proofed are in very close proximity. Alternatively, they’re easily deployed if a rod has to pass all the way through the mount. Deflection characteristics are primarily impacted by the rubber shape and rubber compound allowing AVMR to design the precise component you need for your task.

  • These mounts work well in all 3-axes
  • Low profile and slim for tight spots
  • Easily deployed
  • Able to exhibit a wide range of characteristics
Bolt Through Isolators

Rather than mount a moving (vibrating) element directly to a sub frame it’s incredibly easy to go some way to decreasing its impact through simple bolt through isolators. These come in many basic forms, the simplest and most common being the elastic washer that sits between the mounting surface and the source of the vibration with a bolt through, holding the two parts together with the washer in between.

  • Simple and affordable
  • Can be practically any size
  • A ‘life-saver’ with low cost and design overhead
  • A quick fix where more extensive reworking is impossible
Wire Rope Mounts

These are also known as Helical Coil Mounts, Radial Coil Mounts or Wire Rope Isolators. While most often found in heavier-duty applications by virtue of its strength, the wire-rope mounts’ capacity to cope with vibration and movement in all three dimensions make it ideally placed for anything from shock absorption in camera mounts to mission critical products in potentially high shock environments where an unshakable (but vibration attenuating) grip is required.

They have high levels of built-in damping, just like a rubber product. They can also be high deflection, so can work at low forcing frequencies and with shock absorption.

  • They are failsafe
  • Huge range of applications
  • Super strong
  • Able to protect in all three dimensions
  • Great looks when on show
Suspension Mounts

This type of product is generally for static low frequency applications, or shock environment e.g. industrial hammers, suspended floors. These mounts can accommodate low levels of lateral movement. Failsafe variables exist, as do suspended variables. Low profile options are available and they are engineered for a range of natural frequencies.

  • No job too small or too large
  • Strong but delicate
  • Call us for case studies and more
Bonded Products

Our expertise in rubber bonding place us at the vanguard of this essential technique, bonding rubber to plastics and metals at a unusually high level of precision when required. While others try to engineer it out of their products and produce an inferior solution as a result, we use advanced substrate preparation to precisely deliver bonding agents via 3D masking to ensure a state-of-the-art bond. The result is a product with a longer lifespan.

  • Very high levels of precision, if required
  • Experienced engineering-led expertise
  • Efficient low – medium production capabilities
  • Polymer engineering and corrosion resistance expertise
Rubber Bushings

AVMR are specialists in bushings and rubber bushings. For a damping solution, common in vehicle suspension systems and machines, our bushings are made to high quality and are highly robust. We have a very wide range of bushings available off the shelf but also produce bespoke bushings when needed for projects.

We can select the right rubber to match environmental conditions the bushing will be exposed to and manufacture them in-house. Our state-of-the-art machines mean we can produce from 1-250,000 products to order and cost effectively. AVMR work with some of the best known vehicle brands on the planet.

  • Off-shelf or bespoke manufacture
  • Trusted by the biggest car automotive brands
  • Design through to supply
  • Wide range of choice
  • Good value for money
  • Help you get to market quickly
Air Mounts

Sometimes an air mount is the only real option. Vibrationally speaking, there is little that can isolate vibration as effectively as an air mount, which is why so many high-end vehicles will use air suspension for the smoothest of rides. In addition, air mounts can allow a large range of movement, but also use self-levelling technology to quickly adjust air pressures and to quickly return a load to a level position.

If a load has to be level, but the mass and the location of the centre of gravity can change, then having a mount which can react and adjust might be just what you are after. An air mount can do this.

  • Off the shelf
  • Trusted by high end brands
  • Range of options
  • Enquire for bespoke
  • Highly effective
Pedestal Mounts

Pedestal mounts are generally used for heavier duty applications than bobbin mounts. Or applications where the mount is bolted to a solid surface such as a floor. These mounts normally have a flat plate at one end, with multiple fixing points (typically through holes) and a single central fixing point at the other end, which could be male or female. Typical variables for these products include fixture details, rubber dimensions, and rubber hardness. As ever we have many off-the-shelf options ready to go, or we can create the perfect product just for you.

  • Stronger and ready for heavy duty work
  • Wide range of uses
  • Adaptable mounting options
  • Easily tailored to your needs
