What are good shock mount materials? 

February 03, 2015
  • When a high impact force is delivered across a relatively short time period, the result is shock.
  • This energy shock wave causes damage or injury to effected items or individuals.
  • These undesirable effects result from the transfer of shock energy from the source of the impact to the affected entity.

What is a good shock damper material?

  • Shock is the result of delivering a relatively high impact force over a short time period.
  • This shock wave of energy is responsible for causing injury or damage to the impacted individuals or items.
  • Adverse effects, such as damage or injury, occur as the energy of the shock is transferred to the affected entity from the source of the impacting force.
  • Damping is the absorption and safe dispersal of energy resulting in a decrease in amplitude (strength) of the energy wave, or a change in frequency. Energy is transformed to safer levels and/or frequencies.

The Best Shoe Insole Material

To avoid or eliminate the discomfort and medical maladies connected with these forces, you must find a shoe insole created with a material that will absorb damaging energy before it can cause pain or serious medical conditions. What is the best shoe insole material? Sorbothane®— the best energy absorbing material on the market—is the best shoe insole material.


What is the Best Type of Shock Resistant Material?

  • Shock results when a relatively high impact force is delivered in a short amount of time.
  • This shock wave of energy is responsible for causing injury or damage to the individuals or items on the receiving end of the shock wave.
  • These adverse effects occur as the energy of the shock is transferred from the source of the impact force to the affected entity.
  • Shock’s damaging effects, and how you can resist shock
  • The transfer of damaging shock energy that originates from an impact force causes damage and injury.
  • Shock will ultimately lead to rework, waste, and downtime.

How To Get Help With A Material Damping Calculation 

February 03, 2015

Damping can be defined as the dissipation of oscillating energy. Examples of oscillating energy include vibration, noise, and shock waves. Consider the case of vibration—an oscillating energy made up of cyclically repeated forces of specific frequencies. Vibration refers to the up and down or back and forth motion that is caused by the transferred energy originating from these forces. Because it is caused by waves of energy, vibration possesses both a frequency (oscillations—cycles per time unit) and an amplitude (strength). It is important to be able to control both attributes. 


How to Get Help with Material Force Absorption

Impact force, vibration, compressive stress, acoustical shock, and shear force—sources of undesirable energy that can result in injury, damage, and loss, when not properly controlled. As these various types of forces impact your workers, machinery, and products, they transfer energy that causes damage to—sensitive product shipments, employee hearing, and colliding metal machine parts.


What is a Good Material for Shock Absorption?

Situations exist all around us in which people, products, and equipment are subjected to impact shock. It is important that you understand shock and are aware of effective shock protection. Impact force is a force that delivers a shock or high impact in a relatively short period of time. It happens when two bodies—of any kind–collide. This collision is the result of one body falling onto, or slamming into, another body. This collision delivers a shock wave, as energy, that is transferred to the impacted body(s). This energy is what actually causes damage and injury. Injury may occur when a carpenter strikes a nail or when a runner’s foot impacts the pavement. Damage may result when metal machine parts slam together or when cases of sensitive electronic devices are jostled around during shipping. For businesses—this unwanted energy is causing injury and damage to your workers, equipment, and products.


The Best Material For "Impact Protection” 

February 03, 2015

When two bodies (of any kind) collide—impact one another—the exact moment of collision is known as the point of impact. At this point, a shock is delivered by the force of the impact. This impact force will increase with speed and the size of the colliding bodies. The shock, generated by the impact force, is delivered as energy that is transferred to the impacted body(s). This energy is what causes injury and damage to workers, equipment and product. This is, most definitely—unwanted energy.


The Best Isolator Material 

February 03, 2015

Whether we are considering industrial equipment, home appliances, delicate electronics, a runner’s feet, or a worker’s hearing—there are damaging forces all around us. When these forces (impact force, compressive stress, shear force, vibration, and sound waves) impact people, equipment, and products, they can cause injury and damage. This occurs due to energy transfer at the point of impact. This energy is what causes damage to: the hearing of your workers, metal parts slamming together in a piece of industrial equipment, cases of delicate electronics experiencing rough shipping conditions, and shop floors as machinery “creeps” from its designated location. To avoid these kinds of damage, you need to isolate the affected entity—your worker, your equipment, your product—from the source of the unwanted energy, the force responsible for its generation. This is achieved by using an isolator—a material that absorbs the energy, providing isolation from the generating force and, thereby, protection from damaging effects.


What is a Good Material That’s Used for Noise Damping? 

February 03, 2015

Noise is unwanted sound—and it is all around us. Some noises you perceive to be merely annoying. These might include noise produced by: the spin cycle of your washing machine, the blender that’s making your smoothie, the power tools that are being used out in the garage, your son’s stereo playing in the next room, or your daughter’s trumpet practicing in the basement. Noise can also be harmful. Such is the case if you are working near a high level noise source, especially for extended periods of time. Such scenarios might include: heavy machinery—such as stamping machines, punch presses, or sheeters; industrial equipment—including bulldozers, cranes, or stump grinders; and pneumatic tools—such as jackhammers or nail guns. Continuous exposure to high level noise, as well as repeated exposure to impact noise, can both result in hearing loss—even if you only believe the noise to be annoying. This noise, these unwanted sounds, need to be controlled.
