Anti-Vibration Components in Health Applications

With every innovation in medical equipment, the acceptable levels of vibration for accurate, effective operation of machines such as high magnification microscopes, mass spectrometers, robotic cutting tools and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) machines become more stringent. Controlling and isolating vibration in the healthcare environment is, therefore, an issue of ever greater importance.

Yet such machines can be susceptible to vibration at a level imperceptible to humans and often at frequencies which do not result in secondary manifestations (i.e. rattling lights and vibrating work surfaces). That’s why it is essential that vibration is isolated at source. Fibet’s mounts, buffers and stops can isolate many environmental sources of vibration and vibration caused by the equipment itself.

Environmental factors

  • HVAC
    Heating and air conditioning systems in healthcare buildings can create unintended resonances, thanks to motors, rotating blades and movement of air through ducts. Our anti-vibration universal mounts can isolate HVAC units and reduce noise and vibration levels in all air movement products.
  •  

  • Lifts
    Vibration from lifts systems can transfer from gears and motors to adjacent labs, wards and operating theatres. Fibet’s wide range of mounts and conical buffers provide the shock absorption and impact cushioning that inhibits vibration beyond the lift shaft.

In-equipment factors

Depending on the tool/machinery, in-equipment sources of vibration can come from virtually anywhere: the hum of the fan in a computer controlled system, the hydraulics of a robotic arm or the motor of a pump or air compressor.

  • Bobbin mounts
    Our bobbin mounts enable shock absorption and vibration isolation in a wide range of electronic applications including sensitive measurement equipment, computers, printers and other small machinery.
  •  

  • Bell and pedestal mounts
    Even a small table top compressor or motor can introduce a range of lateral and rotational forces, with potential for vibration to be compounded by resonance along pipes, tubes and cables. Fibet’s rubber mountings can dramatically reduce the effect of vibrational forces.

Facilities

Fibet UK based customers are supported by our distribution site in Lancashire, which is managed by a small but very efficient team who will provide you with the highest level of personal – yet professional service that surpasses anyone else within our industry.

This service is backed up with the widest range of Fibet parts held in stock at these premises for next day delivery.

The Fibet Group has our head office in Turin, Italy where our key technical resources reside alongside our manufacturing facilities.

Our manufacturing facilities encompasses all the key manufacturing processes under one roof to provide us with the highest control, enabling us to respond to customers’ urgent requirements within the shortest space of time.

This includes a wide range of Injection & Compression Mould Machines that provides us with the flexibility to align the process used with the customers’ volume requirements.

This ensures that we can optimise the processes – whilst keeping the piece part prices as low as feasible.

Technical Competence

Our technical expertise is market leading, with high levels of experience gained over 60 years in all applications.

The technical support we can offer include product conceptualisation, design/ development (for the products, tooling and processes), product validation (via life cycle or durability testing), and implementation into full volume production.

All this is project managed inhouse, with design/development performed using the latest CAE/FEA systems, tooling developed and manufactured inhouse, testing using one of the most comprehensive laboratories in the industry, and implementation using the wide range of plant and equipment available.

As we are able to provide a full turnkey service from concept stage, through to initial prototypes (usually within a small number of weeks from go ahead), then onto production volumes within the critical milestones set out by the customer, our NPI leadtimes are unbeatable within the industry.

Finally, all our activities are closely controlled in accordance with ISO9001:2015 & IATF16949:2016.
