Plate Form Vibration Isolation Mounts are widely used vibration isolators that efficiently isolate steady-state vibration and control occasional shock.
These versatile vibration isolation mounts are available in load ratings of 0.25 to 12 pounds per mount. When loaded to their rated capacity, a system natural frequency of approximately 18 Hz results, providing effective isolation in applications where disturbing frequencies are 40 Hz and above. Radial stiffness is approximately two to three times the axial stiffness. Standard Plate Form Mounts are easy to install.
They are available in square or diamond configurations to suit a variety of design requirements. The contour of the flexing element provides uniform stress distribution. This, plus high strength bonding and specially compounded elastomers, provide maximum service life. Note: Snubbing washers are recommended for use with Plate Form Mounts. They form an interlocking system of metal parts, providing a positive safety, which limits and cushions excessive movement from overload and shock.
