Vibration dampers handle 40,000N loads

LWA vibration damping units from Elesa feature natural rubber damping pads built into an adjustable levelling foot design They have been designed to damp vibrations, shocks and noise from moving components or nonbalanced masses such as rotating machines. This vibration can damage operator health as well as reducing the lifespan of the machine or adjacent equipment.

Active machine isolation suits vibration producing equipment such as presses, machine tools and transfer equipment. Passive isolation suits equipment that might be adversely affected by external vibration, such as quality testing, measuring or performance assessment equipment.

The damping elements range from 80mm to 200m in diameter with maximum static load capacity of 40,000N. They are made up of three main elements: a zinc-plated steel base with natural rubber disk, a zinc-plated levelling disk, and a threaded stem to allow an easy and precise levelling of the machine.

The vibration damping elements are available in diameters of 80, 120, 160 and 200mm. Documentation provides technical guidance on the selection to provide the right damping/isolation level for the frequency of vibration, static load and amplitude/deflection of the equipment.
