Vibracon SM Low Profile mounting chocks, from Machine Support BV (Holland), offer solutions for mounting arrangements with limited height, as low as 20 mm. They accommodate normal angular differences between machines and the mounting base without expensive machining of the base or the extra work required when applying epoxy resins. The capability of self-levelling combined with the height adjustment feature are important when addressing applications where the foundation to component chocking height has been established by previous design or chocking methods.
Vibracon adjustable steel chocks are used for mounting of auxiliary equipment and main engines up to 80 metric tons. The mount permits quick and accurate alignment substantially reducing installation time. In many cases, costly machining of foundations can be avoided. The spherical top accommodates differences in mounting surfaces.
According to the company, Vibracon SM elements have received approvals from classification societies, equipment manufacturers and have been accepted for military applications with Grade A shock installations.
