Stationary Machine Mounts
Our anti vibration stationary machine mounts including vm, pm, kg, sandwich bar, rubber bumper and low frequency ring mounts are made from premium rubber and are effective vibration isolators for a wide variety of applications from large food processing units to small computers.

VM mounts are ideal for isolating low frequency vibrations in all planes (x,y,z) of slow speed machinery and stationary machines as well as shock absorption due to their ability to absorb large deflections at low loads. VM mounts also provide passive vibration isolation on electronic instruments, measuring equipment and test cells. Even though VM mounts provide high deflection, they are compact in weight and are easy to install. Height adjusters are also available for VM mounts. Interchangeable with Novibra® type M mounts.
Applications: HVAC equipment, fans, electronics, vibrating tables, electric motors, pumps, compressors and food processing units.
Sandwich Bar Mounts
Sandwich bar mounts also known as sandwich bars or rail mounts are used to absorb the vibration, movements and shock to protect surrounding equipment. Sandwich bar mounts absorb vibration in shear or compression and can be used as a whole but can also be cut, tapped, drilled and precisely measured to fit any required application.
Applications: shipping containers, oil pumps, wind power plates, railroad tracks, standby generators and heavy stationary machinery.
PM mounts are stationary mounts used to isolate vibration in stationary applications such as generators. There is no fail-safe mechanism on these mounts unlike our MM, DS, DH and DM mounts which can be found on our marine engine mount page.
Applications: engines, CNC machinery, stamping presses, roll mills, motors, pumps, paper machine presses, cable machinery, air compressors, generators and gearboxes.
KG mounts are heavy duty rubber vibration mounts with exceptional flexible characteristics in both vertical and horizontal planes. They provide deflection up to 30 mm making them suitable for applications with low disturbing frequencies.
Applications: paper and rolling mills, converters, mixers, gearboxes, sound enclosures, industrial fans and floating structures.
Bumper mounts are effective in neutralizing large shock loads and allow soft impact with increasing bending and spring constant which results in the smooth absorption of a large impact force. Bumper mounts also dampen noise and accept a large load deformation with practically no friction. Bumper mounts do not generate noise at the instant of contact, are easy to mount and require no maintenance.
Applications: traversing cranes, lifting cranes, wagons, cabinets and falling goods.
Low Frequency Ring Mounts
Low frequency ring mounts also known as o-mounts are used to control vibration, noise and motion. Low frequency ring mounts will protect sensitive equipment from incurred movements and are specially built to absorb shock, vibration and forces in shear and compression. The rubber hole in the center of the mount reduces the load capacity and increases the deflection which is favorable for low frequency vibration isolation applications as well as high noise reduction requirements.
Applications: air-compressors, printers, electric motors, medical equipment and small sized machinery and instruments.
