Reducing System Wear Using Anti-Vibration Mounts

If you’ve ever driven in an old truck you probably remember feeling like you hit every bump and divot in the road. That’s likely because the technology used to reduce motion and vibration in the truck was outdated. Vehicles today are equipped with advanced shocks and vibration mounts to reduce the amount of motion felt by drivers and passengers. These advancements in motion control aren’t just limited to commercial automobiles. In fact, motion control technology is utilized in all kinds of applications from industrial machinery to medical devices. Some of the simplest and most widely used motion control solutions are bumper feet and vibration mounts.  These devices dampen vibration using springs and dense materials like rubber.

Why Use Vibration Mounts & Bumper Feet

  1. Increased system longevity by reducing stress on components
  2. Improved usability and increased precision
  3. Cost savings over the life of the application
