Anti-Vibration Mounts for Wind Turbines

Vibration is a perpetual challenge for wind turbines. Excessive vibration shortens the life of turbine components. It loosens bolts and places stress on weld joints. It hastens gear and bearing failures and reduces power quality.

Outside of the turbine, vibration and associated noise can cause environmental and PR problems. The potential effect of vibration on local wildlife, on the quality of life for local residents, and on sensitive seismic monitoring stations can damage public relations and compromise planning applications.

So reducing vibration in wind turbines is not simply a matter of protecting performance – it can be fundamental to protecting the reputation and longevity of the industry.

Wind turbine vibration challenges

In any difficult to access application reliability and long life of components is essential. The engine room of each turbine sits hundreds of feet in the air and need to work reliably and constantly. Fibet anti-vibration components are designed to deliver performance for the long term, maximising service life and minimising the cost, inconvenience and downtime of regular maintenance.

Marine Mounts

A low profile, easy to install design with an integral fail-safe device to provide shock and failure protection for mobile, marine or seismic stationary applications including wind turbines.

When the rubber works in shear and compression it provides large static deflections, low natural (to 8 Hz) and high isolation.

Bushes

Fibet’s range of bushes are used extensively on the rotating parts of turbines – ensuring that any vibration generated is eliminated before it can reach other, potentially sensitive parts. This can extend the operational time between regular maintenance, increases the lifecycle of the turbine – and helps protect the financial return on the turbine investment.

Buffers and stops

Shock absorption and cushioning between connecting parts of tower, gearbox and housing.

Anti-vibration components tailored to your application

Fibet works with wind turbine manufacturers to develop the next generation of high performance anti-vibration mounts and buffers.

From product conceptualisation to mass production, including tooling design, lab testing and design and development using the latest CAE & FEA analysis techniques, talk to us about tailoring anti-vibration components for your application.

And with the shortest NPI lead times in the industry, realising your ambitions is quicker with Fibet.

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.
