Machine Tools

Machine tools are metal working machines like drilling machines, milling machines, lathes and others. These types of machinery can be elastically supported

  • for protection against vibrations from other machinery,
  • for protection of other machinery in the sourroundings,
  • in case of larger machines for protection against differential settlement.

Machine tools are rotating machines with variable speed therefore they require low frequent isolation and effective damping. For elastic support, spring elements and Viscodampers of different design and dynamic behaviour are used.

Small size machinery can be directly spring supported, larger machines might have to be elastically supported on reinforced concrete foundations.
