for industry, machinery and laboratories
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
- Transformers (resistant to transformer oil)
- 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.
