SAW mounting consist of a cylindrical shaped rubber section with integrally bonded inter-leaf metal plates bonded of two square heavy duty outer metal fixing plates. Designed for large compression forces with minimum deformation, while providing low shear stiffness rates.
The combination of a stable low installation height, high compression strength and low shear stiffness makes the SAW a versatile high performance anti-vibration mounting. By connecting two SAW elements in series i.e. on top of the other, an increased isolation efficiency is achieved in both shear and compression planes. Where larger deflection are required in the vertical plane, SAW mountings are mounted at a calculated angle configuration to provide the optimum spring rate.
