Cone and Shear Mounts
Our anti vibration conical, flex bolt sandwich, rectangular sandwich, v shaped generator, motor mounts, square shear, interleaf and plate mounts are effective vibration isolators while providing noise reduction, high load-bearing capabilities and consistent performance in all applications. Applications range from cab, engine and transmission mounts for trucks and buses to construction and agricultural vehicles.

Conical mounts also known as cone mounts isolate shock, motion and vibration in all planes (x,y,z) and if necessary with different loads in each direction to ensure the optimum isolation throughout a wide range of frequencies. Conical mounts have a high load carrying capacity within a compact size that assures a stable solution and are designed with an outer and inner metal sleeve. The shape of both metals are conical for progressive deflection, the outer metal has either a 4 hole or 2 hole flange for easy installation. The supplied washers provide fail safe protection for extreme load in tension or compression that also acts as overload protection to manage excessive g forces. Cone mounts can also be used where the heights of the mounts are critical, as they are designed so that there is minimum protrusion between the securing mount position and the underside of the element to be isolated.
Applications: vehicle bodies, steel frames, commercial or car engines, radiators and cabs.
Flex Bolt Sandwich Mounts
Flex bolt sandwich mounts are used to protect equipment during transportation from shock and to provide vibration isolation. The rubber in our flex bolt sandwich will absorb movements and impact to avoid damage. These mounts can also be found in other transportation vehicles used as noise or vibration isolators on heavy machinery to protect the surrounding equipment. The design of our flex bolt sandwich mounts is developed for shear and compression. The rubber is bonded on two metal plates which can be mounted on each side of the floor, frame or equipment you are using the flex bolt sandwich mounts on.
Applications: missile silos, shipping containers, wind power plates, vibratory feeders and compactor rolling machines, air conditioning/ventilation equipment, motorcycles and other large equipment.
Sandwich mounts also known as rectangular sandwich mounts, are widely used for mounting engines in road vehicles and mobile construction plants. In the larger sizes they are used as vehicle suspension springs and as mountings for acoustic chambers, hoppers and various types of heavy plant installation. The rubber in sandwich mounts is bonded between two metal plates with holes at each end for fitting. Some designs incorporate steel interleaves for increased load capacity. These mounts are best used in shear and compression but may be loaded directly in shear or compression.
Applications: road vehicles, mobile construction plants, vehicle suspensions, acoustic chambers, hoppers, heavy plant installation, lift head gear, conveyor systems and heavy duty machinery.
V Shaped Generator Mounts
V shaped generator mounts also known as v shaped generator supports are comprised of two symmetrically-tilted metal parts with a screw on each side. V shaped generator mounts render it possible to make installations which are more elastic than ones usually made with cylindrical or bobbin mounts. In turn, this makes it possible to achieve lower frequencies and improved vibration isolation. Stability is also further enhanced when two are installed, symmetrically opposed. They have two different length screws which facilitate the assembly of the engine to the chassis.
Applications: motor pumps, compressors, hvac units, missile component containers, transmission transfer cases and portable gensets.
Motor mounts are used to absorb shocks, vibrations and machine noises in heavy and light equipment. Motor mounts also protect sensitive electric motor or aggregates from incurred movements. They are specially designed to absorb forces in all directions. The rubber used in motor mounts is developed for rough environmental conditions as well as maintain a high load capacity. The premium rubber compound used in our motor mounts is developed for rough environmental conditions so they will last much longer under heavy load.
Applications: agriculture machines, light and heavy construction machines, highway trucks, air compressors, generators and electric motors.
Shear mounts dampen extreme shocks, low frequencies and machine noises. The specially developed rubber in our shear mounts has the outstanding ability to absorb the heat generated by the vibrations which is essential for most applications. The design of our shear mounts is developed for shear and compression. The hourglass shape releases tension, during deflection on bond and rubber, this guarantees the expected performance and is most suitable in shear requirements.
Applications: heavy equipment, compactors, hammers for excavators, springs for vibratory equipment, crushers and generators.
Interleaf mounts also known as saw or crusher mounts consist of a cylindrical shaped rubber section with naturally bonded interleaf metal plates bonded to two square heavy duty outer metal fixing plates. Interleaf mounts are used to isolate intermittent or continuous vibrations and they allow for static and shock loads in compression as well as also providing high isolation in the horizontal shear direction.
Applications: ultrasonic chambers, transformers, vibrating tables, mills, edge runners, feeder screes, presses, hoppers and grinding machines.
Plate mounts are versatile low-frequency isolators recommended to isolate steady state vibration and control occasional shock inputs. Plate mounts are lightweight and compact vibration isolators that provide multi-directional isolation from lower frequency disturbances.
Applications: pumps, compressors, electronic and medical equipment.
