machinery creates large vibration forces which frequently require
isolation from the surrounding building structure. Large forces or
doubtful machine stability may require the use of an inertia block of
steel or concrete to provide low dynamic amplitude on the machine whilst
providing a stable and stiff base which may be supported by steel
springs or other resilient devices. Many applications will operate
quite satisfactorily with only an undamped steel spring support, but
where system resonances may be excited to unacceptable amplitude
due to the varying speed of the machine or transient conditions, damping
must be incorporated.
Our range of steel springs and damper units for the support of
machines are as diverse as laboratory balances and Turbo generator
Sets. Although standard components are used, each system is
individually designed and analysed to ensure that the correct
stiff-nesses and masses are provided to permit proper operation of the
mounted equipment. First introduced over 40 years ago, these
systems are now used world-over.
