Anti-Vibra­ti­on Mats for Indus­try and Labo­ra­to­ries / Rese­arch Facilities

Anti-vibra­ti­on mats and pads for indus­try, labo­ra­to­ries, machine­ry, mea­su­ring devices, com­pres­sors, coo­ling units, gene­ra­tors, pumps, buil­dings, con­struc­tion, rails etc.

In addi­ti­on to indus­tri­al cus­to­mers inclu­ding the phar­maceu­ti­cal indus­try, we supply our cus­to­mi­zed anti­vi­bra­ti­on solu­ti­ons also to renow­ned (tech­ni­cal) uni­ver­si­ties, labo­ra­to­ries and rese­arch institutes.

What are anti-vibra­ti­on mats? Why to use anti-vibra­ti­on mats?

Vibra­ti­ons can occur in many dif­fe­rent types of indus­tri­al envi­ron­ments. They often come from the various machi­nes and equip­ment found in such areas. The steady rhythm of vibra­ti­ons can be a real nui­sance to employees. Howe­ver, such vibra­ti­ons can some­ti­mes go beyond a mere nui­sance, affec­ting both the machine­ry and the floor below, as well as the health of employees. Thanks to the sound-absor­bing pro­per­ties of rubber, anti-vibra­ti­on mats can make an indus­tri­al work­place more plea­sant by absor­bing noise from vibra­ti­ons and redu­cing noise levels in the area. Anti-vibra­ti­on mats are the­re­fo­re very important in mini­mi­zing vibra­ti­ons from indus­tri­al machinery.

Anti-vibra­ti­on mats can be used to shield / iso­la­te indus­tri­al machine­ry from direct con­ta­ct with solid floors. Anti-vibra­ti­on mats / anti-vibra­ti­on mats can be used to pro­tect indus­tri­al floors and employees from highly vibra­ting machi­nes. Anti-vibra­ti­on mats made of rubber / elas­to­mers are elastic enough to absorb shocks and at the same time resistant enough to with­stand the stron­gest loads, e.g. those of high-speed trains built into the track body.

Vibra­ti­ons, espe­cial­ly those emana­ting from heavy indus­tri­al machine­ry, can cause severe damage to both the floors of an area and the machine­ry itself from which they emanate.

Typi­cal app­li­ca­ti­ons for vibra­ti­on dam­ping mats and pads include

  • Heavy machi­ne tools
  • Injec­tion mol­ding machines
  • Hydrau­lic equip­ment / hydrau­lic presses
  • Pun­ching machi­nes / punch pres­ses / auto­ma­tic punch presses
  • Embos­sing presses
  • Scree­ning machines
  • Die ham­mers
  • Pumps
  • Trans­for­mers (resistant to trans­for­mer oil)
  • Gene­ra­tors
  • Trans­port trol­leys / truck trailers
  • Vibra­ti­on iso­la­ti­on of machi­ne foundations
  • Vibra­ti­on and noise dam­ping of rails instal­led in the track body (e.g. for high-speed trains, sub­ways, streetcars)

Heavy machine­ry that vibra­tes during use is abra­si­ve by nature. They are often made of hard mate­ri­als, such as steel, and can weigh up to several tons. It does­n’t help that they are often placed on equal­ly hard and unf­or­gi­ving sur­faces without padded mats for pro­tec­tion. The most common types of indus­tri­al floo­ring are asphalt and con­cre­te, which cannot absorb the shocks and impacts of modern machinery.

Anti-vibra­ti­on solu­ti­ons for labo­ra­to­ries and sen­si­ti­ve mea­su­ring instruments

Spe­cial anti-vibra­ti­on solu­ti­ons must be used for sen­si­ti­ve mea­su­ring instru­ments in labo­ra­to­ries or rese­arch faci­li­ties, as they are often rela­tively light in weight. Examp­les of sen­si­ti­ve mea­su­ring, elec­tro­nic and tes­ting equip­ment that must be shiel­ded from exter­nal vibra­ti­ons are:

  • High-pre­cisi­on/­la­bo­ra­to­ry scales
  • Mass spec­tro­me­ters
  • Corio­lis mass flow meter
  • Micro­scopes inclu­ding confocal/light microscopes
  • Rough­ness testers
  • Corio­lis mass flow meter
  • Eva­po­ra­tor box with fan

In addi­ti­on to anti-vibra­ti­on mats/pads made of micro­cel­lu­lar poly­ure­tha­ne elas­to­mers, we also offer spe­cial vibra­ti­on-damped anti-vibra­ti­on tables for mea­su­ring instru­ments / pre­cisi­on balan­ces with gra­ni­te plates.
