How does a shock absorber protect equipment from damage? Why aren't rubber bumpers used more often? What is the technique behind selecting the right sized isolator?
Shock and vibration are everywhere in the manufacturing world. If not managed properly, this unwanted energy can lead to damaged equipment, production downtime, and quality defects. This presentation will characterize the most prevalent forms of shock and vibration and address questions like those above. A better understanding of the physics behind today's vibration isolation and energy absorption solutions will help attendees select the best systems for their needs.
- Discover how shock and vibration impact industrial applications
- Understand the physics behind common energy absorption/vibration isolation solutions
- Learn common terms for addressing shock and vibration problems/solutions
