Cushioning layers, i.e. anti-vibration mountings, are generally used in practice for two main reasons.
Vibration-reducing machine mountings provide constant flexibility in terms of the arrangement of machinery.
Conventional floor anchoring systems are virtually no longer required, and the machines can be adapted to new manufacturing processes with a few simple adjustments. Moreover, the problem of uneven floors can be easily solved with the leveller which is usually integrated.
Anti-vibration machine mountings are an efficient way of protecting people, the environment, building fabric and the machines themselves. They significantly reduce vibrations and shocks and greatly improve working conditions.
i.e. to prevent vibrations from impacting on the base, adjoining rooms, buildings, etc. Due account must always be taken of the interference frequency, the structure of the machine and its location. It is the most common method of absorbing vibrations and is used in practically every business or household.
