Cylindrical rubber bump stops with one female end only are often used as feet and bumpers, typically screwed into applications at intervals to protect from striking or bumping as well to support static load.
Rubber Bumper Stops for Impact and Vibration Absorption
- Cylindrical rubber mounts that can be used as rubber bumper stops
- Typically used as anti-vibration isolation pads that require the properties of neoprene, rubber, or elastomers
- Applications by industry for anti-vibration rubber bump stops; industrial, aerospace, automotive, OEM, transportation, construction, healthcare, research, oil, and gas
- Sample product applications for rubber bump stops, vibration isolator mount, machine vibration isolation, HVAC, vacuum, engine, aerospace, motors, fans, medical equipment, and electronics
- Often referred to as vibration isolation pads, bumper rubber mounts, vibration isolation mounts, rubber isolation mounts, rubber vibration isolator, rubber engine mounts, rubber stops
What Do Bump Stops Do?
How Do You Know If Bump Stops Are Bad?
You can determine if bump stops on machinery are in poor condition or need replacement through the following indicators:
Visible Damage: Check for visible signs of damage, such as cracks, tears, or disintegration in the rubber or elastomeric material. If the bump stops are physically deteriorated, they may be ineffective.
Unusual Noises: If you hear clunking or knocking sounds when operating machinery, it could indicate that the bump stops are worn or damaged, allowing metal-to-metal contact during suspension compression.
If you notice any of these signs, it's advisable to have the bump stops inspected and, if necessary, replaced to ensure the optimal performance of your machinery.
