Do you ever hear about the vibration? Well, for the people who work as the engineer, they may familiar with the term of vibration. It is known as one of the phenomena that should be prevented happen in the machine. So, what is a vibration in the machine? The vibration is the phenomenon of back and forth movements. Sometimes, vibration is also known as oscillating.
The vibration can happen with the motorized equipment. In the term of vibration of the machine, this phenomenon can be a sign of the problem and unusual operation. For example, the unavoidable vibration on internal combustion and gear drives. Well, the presence of the vibration on the machine can lead to serious problems. Therefore, the engineer mainly focuses on the development tool to reduce the intensity of the vibration. However, you may wonder what the cause of the vibration is.
The vibration can be caused by three-factors which are an imbalance, misalignment, wear, and looseness. The imbalance can cause vibration due to the heavy spot of the rotating component. As you probably know, if there is a heavy spot in the rotating component, they will cause the centrifugal force which leads to the vibration. If the speed of the rotating machine increase, it can lead to greater vibration. The misalignment can lead to vibration when there is a component machine that is out of line.
The misalignment can happen after the re-arrangement of the maintenance of the machine. The component shifting can lead to misalignment as well. The wear can cause vibration when there is worn gear or drive belts. The looseness of the component can lead to unobvious vibration. In the worst case, it can lead to underlying vibration and break the machine.
You may wonder what the effect of the vibration process. Well, the vibration can cause some acceleration machine wear. It can also lead to excess power consumption. If you find these cases in your machine, you may need to take the machine for the service. And, as a result, the machine service will delay the progress of the work. In order to prevent these problems, you may need to observe and monitor the possibility of the vibration that may happen in the machine. There are several types of equipment that can be chosen as vibration testing.
For example, you can use the Vibration Isolator Pro. This application will enable your smartphone to calculate and choose the unwilling frequency. Once you know the frequency that should be isolated, the application will show you the options for choosing a vibration mount.
Well, the vibration mount is a tool to isolate the vibrations. This is an important tool in reducing the vibration effect. If you don’t know how to use the application, you can watch the demo video. This video will show you the instruction for using the application. However, if you have understood how to run this application, you can skip the tutorial video.
Well, there are several types of anti-vibration mounts that can be used for vibration isolation. For example, rubber to metal vibration isolator. As you probably know that rubber is a material that is commonly used for isolating vibration. The rubber to metal vibration isolator has wide functions in the industrial. The second example is vibrabsopber and slower.
These vibration isolators can be used in an industry that requires a high degree of isolation such as industrial acoustic. As mentioned previously that rubber vibration isolator is commonly used in the industrial. For example, you can try to use BRB anti-vibration mounts. This type of mount can be used when your needs are mainly for isolating vibration. However, if you want to control the movement, you can choose the BRT anti-vibration mounts.
This type of mount will be suitable for your needs. You may also try to use the marine mount. This type of mount is suitable for the mobile application due to the rugged design. If you need the anti-vibration with different stiffness and damping, you can try to use a hydraulic mount. It will be suitable for your needs. Well, in order to get the best result for reducing and isolating vibrations, you need to be careful when you want to choose the vibration mounts.
