Type E Simple Rubber Buffer
Quick Code: BB-357743
12mm OD x 15mm M5 Type E Simple Rubber Buffer
Rigid buffers used as end stops or to limit the stroke of moving parts give rise to high impact stresses to structures often causing visible deterioration. This is normally accompanied by unacceptably high noise levels to the human ear, particularly when these impacts are repeated periodically.
Rubber buffers eliminate these drawbacks considerably, as they dampen noise and absorb energy. The simple buffer is a flat surface and therefore responds immediately to impact, without over-extending the stroke of the moving part.
These buffers are made with a rubber compound permitting major deformations under impact with notable absorptions of energy.
These buffers can be used in these two ways: As actual buffers - impact taking place to an end of a stroke, taking into account the maximum deflection the stop has to give. As flexible mounts where the buffers may be screwed to the base of the machine so that its flat surface rests directly on the floor or ground.
As buffers: In limiting impact stress. Â• End of stroke of spring or damper. Â• End of stroke of cranes and hoists. Â• Supporting fragile material or machinery in packaging applications.
