New Hyde Park, New York - A new line of stainless steel leaf spring type vibration mounts introduced by Stock Drive Products are designed for use with various rotating and/or reciprocating devices which include laboratory equipment, compressors, engine suspensions and communications equipment. All materials used are impervious to corrosion and will operate efficiently under a wide range of temperatures making the units well-suited for naval or aircraft applications. Identified as the A10Y15 Series, their basic design employs two or more high tensile stainless steel "U" formed leaves, situated at each end, forming an elliptical shape when joined together in the center portion with face plates. The spaces between the "U." formed leaves are filled with a specially developed polymer compound, post-cured to a permanent condition.

Nonmetallic collars backed by stainless steel washers are provided for load attachment. These non-metallic collars help to reduce noise transmission significantly. Inch size or metric size bolts can be used for fastening of the equipment to the base or foundation.

Low transmitted shock accelerations are obtained by combining large permitted static deflection in every direction with a high energy loss within the mount. The high efficiency of damping is obtained by the polymer compound which has a very low static stiffness.
