Sprung foundations for fewer dynamic influences

Sprung foundations for fewer dynamic influences

Depending on the application and test bench loads, and on the natural- or external frequencies which affect results, sprung foundations are often used. Their enormous masses reduce the dynamic influences to a minimum. We support you with calculations for the design of appropriate foundation and produce the relevant reinforcement plans.

    Important questions for vibratory foundations

    What different types of loads and vibrations could act on a vibrating foundation and a clamping plate?

    There are a wide variety of loads and vibrations that can act on vibrating foundations and clamping plates. Examples of these are:

    • Static loads: These are constant, unchanging loads, such as the weight of a machine or other structure that rests permanently on the foundation.
    • Dynamic loads: These loads change over time and can be caused, for example, by machine movements, moving parts or load changes.
    • Shock loads: Sudden, short load peaks that can be caused, for example, by the falling of a heavy object or a machine fault.
    • Harmonic vibrations: These are caused by repetitive movements or cycles, such as those that occur in rotating machinery.
    • Random vibrations: Unpredictable vibrations that may be caused by external factors or irregular machine operating conditions, for example.

    How do you determine the need for and the level of vibration isolation for a vibration foundation?

    The need for and degree of vibration isolation depends on the specific requirements and circumstances of the particular application. For example:

    • Protection of the machine: When operating a high-precision CNC machine, any external vibration must be isolated to ensure that the machine can operate accurately.
    • Protection of the environment: In a laboratory where sensitive measurements are made, vibrations from neighbouring machines or equipment must be isolated to ensure the accuracy of the measurements.
    • Protection of both: In a multi-purpose building that houses both offices and production facilities, it may be necessary to isolate vibrations from production machines to protect both the machines and the office workers.

    What environmental factors could affect a vibrating foundation?

    Various environmental factors can affect the performance and durability of a sprung foundation. Some examples are:

    • Temperature fluctuations: Extreme cold or heat can expand or contract materials, affecting their damping properties.
    • Humidity: High humidity or direct water contact can lead to corrosion or degradation of certain materials.
    • Aggressive media: Chemicals, acids or alkalis can attack the foundation's materials and impair its structure or function.
    • Earthquakes: In areas prone to earthquakes, the vibrating foundation must be designed to withstand the additional loads caused by seismic activity.

    Consideration of such environmental factors can ensure that the vibratory foundation will function effectively throughout its designed life.
