Elesa is now supplying vibration dampers for machines, complementing the company's existing ranges of standard machine parts from handles to handwheels.
Elesa's DVA range is formed in natural rubber based on zinc/steel and AISI 304 stainless mounts with male or female attachments. They have been designed to dampen vibrations, shocks and noises produced by moving bodies or vibrating masses that can cause malfunctioning and reduction of the machine lifespan and/or of the adjacent equipment, or even harm operators' health. Essentially operating in compression or shear, double-ended cylindrical units are often required to carry heavy equipment loads while, on the other hand, single mounting buffers in pad or conical format are suitable for absorbing energy on impact during equipment operation or similar.
The DVA range is available in black natural rubber to standard hardness 55 Shore A, as well as 40 Shore A or 70 Shore A to custom specifications. Further information regarding Elesa products may be found at www.elesa.co.uk.
