Application

Used in industrial applications in the following ways:

  • As active isolation, to prevent noisy equipment (power presses, printing presses) from disturbing the surrounding area.
  • As passive isolation, to prevent sensitive equipment (body coordinate measuring machines, dynamometers) from being disturbed by structure-born vibration.

Also used in:

  • Cupping presses.
  • Roll grinders.
  • Recycling centres.
  • Forges.
  • Long-bed machinery.
  • Metrology and inspection.

Description

Isolated foundations which combine the use of high performance vibration isolation materials, mass dampening and rigid fixing of the equipment to the foundation. It provides effective, low frequency isolation of machinery and equipment through a concrete inertia block. The isolating material surrounds the inertia block to prevent vibration entering or leaving.

Features:

  • Alignment is maintained during changes in static and dynamic loads. This is beneficial for long-bed machinery, modular machines or high-precision equipment.
  • Added mass from the inertia block significantly reduces vibration levels.
  • Inertia block reduces the centre of gravity (CoG), which can be beneficial for equipment with a high CoG.
  • Manufactured in accordance with BS 6177:1982 and BS EN 1337-3:2005.

Components:

  • ISOMAT pads – high performance base vibration isolation material.
  • ISOFOAM – wall isolation material.

Applications:

Used in industrial applications in the following ways:

  • As active isolation, to prevent noisy equipment (power presses, printing presses) from disturbing the surrounding area.
  • As passive isolation, to prevent sensitive equipment (body coordinate measuring machines, dynamometers) from being disturbed by structure-born vibration.
