Vibration Dampers | Shock Absorbers

Vibration Dampers

Vibration and oscillation damping is one of the foundation stones for WILLBRANDT.

We deal with daily elimination or reduction of shaking and structural noise, absorption of fluctuations from motors, pumps and machines, as well as reduction of shock.

In many cases, we can find a solution among our many standard stock items from, for example, Continental Contitech and GMT Rubber-Metall-Technik.

Schwingmetall | MEGI

SCHWINGMETALL® and MEGI products

Failsafe – economical – maintenance free. A large selection of standard high quality products.

The requirements for modern machines with respect to oscillation and noise reduction are diverse.

SCHWINGMETALL®and MEGI products:
  • dampens vibration and structural noise
  • isolates machine and engine fluctuations
  • reduces acceleration forces (shock)
  • protects against noise

The SCHWINGMETALL® / MEGI range is produced as standard in natural rubber (NR) in shore hardness A 40, 55 and 65. Articles and shore hardnesses that are not stocked are available on request at short notice.

The SCHWINGMETALL®-range can be divided into three main product groups:
CAVOFLEX

CAVOFLEX® wire rope isolators are manufactured by WILLBRANDT in Hamburg in stainless steel wires. The special advantages of these elements compared to conventional steel springs or elastomer dampers are their exceptional ability to deform under shock and excellent vibration damping properties. 

The elements are particularly suitable for shock and vibration-proof suspension. They also meet international defense specifications from, for example, NATO, Stanag or MIL.

CAVOFLEX® wire rope isolators are available in the following versions:
  • Standard product series, where the wire is wound screw-shaped over two pairs of bars.
    Wire diameter from 1.5 to 37.0 mm.
    Load range: 1 – 2500 kg
  • Type HK
    As type H, but shortere.
    Load range: 1 – 1000 kg
  • Type RX
    Wires connects two rounds, where the wire ends are clamped in the rounds.
    Wire diameter from 3.0 to 6.3 mm.
    Load range: 0.5 – 50 kg
  • Type QX
    Specially developed products for wall mounting of closets / cabinets or other devices.
    Wire diameter from 6.3 to 8 mm.
    Load range: 4 – 6.5 kg
  • Type TX
    Two plates are connected star-shaped via four wires.
    Wire diameter from 1.5 to 3.5 mm.
    Load range: 0.1 – 2 kg
  • Type SX
    Two bars are connected star-shaped via wires.
    Wire diameter from 6.3 to 19.0 mm.
    Load range: 2 – 100 kg
Advantages of CAVOFLEX® wire rope isolators:
  • performances in saltwater resistant and antimagnetic material possible
  • particularly great effective suspension of the springs
  • low frequencies
  • low resonance peaks
  • Quick damping of amplitude after shock pulse
  • No fatigue phenomena after dynamic overload
  • loadable in pressure, impact and pull direction
  • Excellent resistance to environmental impact without reducing spring characteristics (environment, saline, chemicals, electrical conductivity, temperature)
  • absolutely maintenance free
  • quality at the highest level: CAVOFLEX®– Made in Germany / Made by WILLBRANDT
