Marine Anti-Vibration Components
In marine environments, it’s not just vibration that your equipment needs to contend with – shock forces are relentless too. So, if your equipment is to keep running smoothly, it needs vibration isolation components up to the task of coping with these onerous conditions.
Right now, Fibets’ bushes, stops and engine mounts are being used in marine applications including:
- Propeller shafts
Ensure optimum vibration isolation, even when asking the propeller to deliver maximum thrust.
- Marine vehicle engines, gearboxes, pumps and motors
Isolating vibration in boat engines, gearboxes etc is not only vital to user comfort, it can limit wear on bearings, other key components and resultantly reduce repair costs. It can also ensure that sensitive monitoring and measuring equipment isn’t compromised by excess vibration.
- Sub-sea drilling
Vibration is a major contributor to drill string damage. The more you can limit vibration, the less potential there is for drilling downtime. Talk to us about how our buffers, bobbins and bushes can isolate vibration in your drilling processes.
- Ocean wind farm construction and maintenance
A stationery wind turbine is a turbine that can’t fulfil its purpose, and one of the key factors in keeping the blades turning is protecting the bearings from vibration damage. Additionally, isolating low level vibration from wind turbines can reduce the impact on nearby monitoring equipment and wildlife.
Built for the ocean
For inboard marine applications, Fibets’ standard range of isolation products can resolve all aspects of vibration isolation.
Where there are requirements for externally sited marine applications, Fibet are able to offer our products manufactured in materials that can perform satisfactorily in onerous environmental conditions, including exposure to saltwater, chemical attack, temperature conditions, or any other factor that would normally cause a standard product to degrade.

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.
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.
