Metal Forming

Vibrations can be controlled – wherever they occur

Vibration control for metal forming

Why tolerate your vibration problem? Control it!

Forming machines produce vibrations, which can be unpleasant or even inadmissible for both the neighbourhood as well as adjacent facilities or components. These are caused by high kinetic energy forging processes from forging hammers, forging presses, and screw presses. For cold forming, for instance from servo, crank, or hydraulic presses, there are additional, higher frequencies that add to the noise and vibration emissions.

 

GERB had developed the direct spring support approach in collaboration with the machine manufacturers which is state of the art worldwide. Thus, the machines are erected without intermediate foundations directly on specially developed spring-Viscodamper® combinations. With them, vibrations in the surrounding areas can be reduced by up to 95 % compared to a fixed foundation.

 

Direct spring support can also be used for protecting highly sensitive testing and tooling machines, which are often deployed near hammers and presses.
