This range of NATO codified and standard shock and anti-vibration mounts has been utilised on Military vehicles currently under deployment in the roughest terrains throughout the world.
'J' TYPE The ‘J’ mount is designed to yield at a predetermined load in any direction under shock. It gives no vibration isolation and is suitable for shock protection. This mount enables the design of a vehicle 'crumple zone' for collision force reduction and absoption of shock from mines, thus reducing crew injuries.Mass range: 2.0 - 180 kg. Datasheet
'XM' Mounts The ‘XM’ mount is damped with knitted mesh cushions. This allows it to be used in areas where high or low temperatures and extreme environmental conditions are of a concern, and the standard Type ‘X’ is not suitable.
The ‘XM’ mount could be used for seating frame and or compartment section shock mounts. This mount will reduce a 230g blast acceleration down to as little as 15g greatly reducing crew injuries. Secondary use could be for mounting between the vehicle and external blast plates.
Caparo Engineering Limited holds the Patent for this design of mount.
Mass Range: 9.0 - 550 kgDatasheet
Cone Mounts The Cone Mount series consist of a natural rubber resilient element set between two metal cones. Top and bottom washers are supplied to prevent excessive deflections. Can be used to mount engines, and associated equipment. The mounts can also be used in static applications to mount machinery. The mounts provide a stable mounting method, reducing the tendency for mounted items to tilt.Mass Range: 1.0 kg - 2,500 kgDatasheet
Cup Mounts The cup mount series consist of elastic elements between a base pedestal and an
outer cup. The outer cup provides protection for the rubber from oil, grease, petrol,
diesel, and other contaminants. Sizes 5, 6 and 7 are captive designs, making them
particular suitable for applications where shock or overloads may be present, for
example mobile and marine applications.Mass Range: 20 kg - 800 kgDatasheet
KNITTED AND FORMED MESH Due to its excellent heat and corrosion resistant properties, knitted stainless steel mesh has a wide range of military and industrial uses when formed into pads, washers and sleeves. Applications include aerospace, filtration, marine, instrumentation and communications.Mass range: Dependant upon design and shape factor.
SERIES 7002 Eleven versions with a natural frequency of 7 - 11 Hz. Applications include Electronic mounting trays and sensitive equipment aboard military vehicles to reduce shock and vibration. This increases survivability when navigating through rough terrain. An all metal construction ensures operation at extreme temperatures.
Mass range: 0.7 - 110 kg.Datasheet
TW Mounts The TW series of mounts consist of two rubber parts: one ‘washer’ and one ‘washer/bush’. The ‘washer/bush’ incorporates a metal bush, which acts as a guide for a fixing screw. It can be installed by two methods (see Datasheet) and various plate thicknesses can be accommodated.Mass Range: 50 kg - 500 kgDatasheet
