Vibrational forces play havoc on even the most rigid equipment. Constant movement and wear will affect any units associated, potentially causing failure at the source or further down the line. Rubber isolates movement, reduces mechanical stress and preserves the life of your equipment. Our Vibration Control Products are specifically designed for applications that include electrical motors, diesel engines, fans and blowers, material handling equipment, compressors, measuring instruments, punch presses, lathes and a variety of other industrial equipment.
The right rubber components can make a powerful difference in noise and vibration levels on machinery. Whether on the shop floor or inside heavy equipment, the smooth operation of machinery is important for worker comfort and health and safety. With the growing trend to use heavy equipment cabs as high-tech work spaces, minimizing sound and vibration can be crucial to meeting day-to-day demands.
Rubber parts, whether standard stock or custom, are generally a low cost component in terms of material cost and manufacturing ease. More importantly, in terms of the critical function they serve for products and equipment, their relative cost is miniscule. A small rubber grommet could effectively be the critical component preventing an equipment failure, potential lateral damage and costly plant downtime. A properly fitted bushing could be the difference between thousands of happy customers and a devastating product recall.
With the many molding, extrusion and bonding techniques, the possibilities for rubber parts – in shape, size, color and materials – is virtually limitless. The process from initial concept to finished product is relatively quick and low cost, and with the added expertise from RPM customer service representative, designing the part that will perfectly address your needs is always achievable.
