Tico machinery mounting products are designed to match today's fast changing industrial environment.
These products ensure that plant and machinery are mounted swiftly and safely, but can easily be relocated to provide production flexibility.
The most common reason for employing a Tico product in a machinery mounting application is for the control of vibration.
The problem - An un-isolated machine may transmit vibrations into the surrounding structure and cause annoyance, other problems, or be susceptible to vibrations being transmitted to itself from its surroundings (e.g. in the case of sensitive test equipment).
Vibrations can cause...
- Damage to floors
- Damage to machine parts
- Transmitted noise
- Operator discomfort
- Problems with sensitive and accurate equipment
Solution - The basic principle of vibration control is to ensure there is no rigid connection between the machine and its support (e.g. the floor). This is achieved by introducing a Tico pad between the two.
