Vibration isolation is a key factor in numerous industries, ranging from aerospace engineering to electronics manufacturing.

Improper vibration isolation can cause harm or reduce performance to delicate equipment and structures due to unwanted vibrations. However, there are several methods and technologies accessible for vibration isolation.

It is crucial for anyone involved in these industries to comprehend how these methods work. Learn more about vibration isolation in this handy, detailed video guide.

How Does Vibration Isolation Work?

Vibration is a reciprocating motion of a body or structure. In our case, the vibration (excitation frequency) is caused by the production line.Fabreeka Fabcel LeveLers

The floor transfers the vibration to the measuring table, which in turn vibrates with the same frequency.

The vibration isolation mounts (right) reduce the transmission of the excitation frequency. Vibration isolation does not change the excitation frequency.

Rather, it reduces the amplitude, which can be seen by the reduction in the height of the oscillations and troughs.

Vibrations can be desirable, and useful; Or, they can be a nuisance because of the noise pollution in disturbing vibration.

In production facilities, vibrations can have a great impact on the measurement results of sample tests, which are not as reliable when manufacturing equipment is running nearby.

The production line is generating unwanted vibration that disturbs the measuring table. The vibration spreads, thus impacting measurement results and working conditions.

Vibration isolation:

  • Reduces transmission of disturbing vibrations
  • Reduces vibration-borne noise
  • Improves working conditions for people and environment

The absence of disturbing vibrations improves product quality and production speed, while also prolonging the lifespan of tools and machinery.
