Sandwich mountings are made of one or more layers of rubber to join two parallel metallic plates and, optionally, with intermediate metal plates between them. These supports may be cylindrical or rectangular. They are designed to withstand very high compression loads. The mechanical characteristics of these supports are determined by the hardness of the rubber and the number of intermediate metal plates.
According to the specific characteristics of applications, the elastomer used is selected for a better adaptation of the equipment to the environment, as well as the metal plates that can receive an anti-corrosion treatment.
Application: The appropriate design and the large seating surface allows a high ratio of axial and radial rigidity and are therefore suitable for installation in equipment of large size and high load, allowing the free movement in all directions.
