Features and Benefits
Vibro/Dynamics Micro/Level® Wedge Style Isolators are designed for the free-standing installation of Punch Presses, Machine Tools, Plastic Injection Molding and Die Cast machinery.
Their wedge design, with side adjusting leveling screw, makes them ideal for leveling and installing machines that cannot use vertical leveling screw type isolators because the mounting holes are too small or nonexistent.
Wedge Isolators are also available with our unique Glide/Ring™ damper designed to dissipate horizontal forces that cause some machines to walk. The Glide/Ring damper’s built-in swivel automatically adjusts for an out-of-parallel condition between the foundation and bottom of the machine feet for improved machine support and isolator performance.
Wedge Isolators are available in free-standing, bolt-on, and bolt-thru styles with static load ranges from 4,600 - 144,000 lb. per isolator.
Multi-layer elastomer versions are available for added vibration and shock isolation. Custom types, models and configurations to suit just about any need.
The Glide/Ring Damper is a unique device,
available on some models, that provides
uniform support and keeps machines from
walking. It consists of a Swivel Dish, Swivel Seat, Damping Ring and Retainer Ring.
The Glide/Ring Damper has two functions.
First, the Swivel Dish has a four degree tilt capability that automatically adjusts when the foundation and the bottom of the machine feet are not parallel. In an extreme out-of-parallel condition, one side of the isolator will compress more than the other, resulting in an uneven load pattern on both the machine’s foot and the isolator’s elastomer. The Glide/Ring damper provides uniform support for improved machine and isolator performance.
Second, the swivel seat is designed to move slightly in the horizontal direction, dissipating horizontal forces that cause some high-speed machines to walk.
