The main purpose of a machine foundation is to stabilise the machine as well as to increase the moment of inertia. The foundation, thus positively influences machine vibration by reducing the ampliude of oscillation. A correct isolation between machine foundation and the surrounding area will result in trouble free operation.
While doing vibration insulation, stacks of Bilz Anti Vibration rubber Plates are placed under the foundation block. By using these 'stacks', it is possible to reach a very low natural frequency, which enhances the isolation effect. In this vibration insulation system, in addition to the insulation plate stacks, we use a very heavy seismic mass (concrete block,etc.).
This stabilizes the machine, increases the moment of inertia & brings down the center of gravity of the system. Therefore the heavy concrete foundation will influence the machine vibrations by reducing the amplitude of vibrations & the Bilz insulation plate stacks will insulate the complete range of frequencies safely above 20 Hz.
The effect of the above two factors gives you a perfect vibration insulation system for your machines.
The benefits of this Bilz foundation insulation system are:
- Eliminates transfer of amplitude & frequency of vibrations from all the sides.
- Dampens & eliminates structure borne vibrations & noise.
- Longer machine life.
- Faster production on the machine due to better machine speeds.
