MDS high-efficiency cab mounts from Trelleborg Industrial AVS have been chosen by the Indian construction equipment manufacturer, ACE Ltd. for its new range of compactors due to the mounts have proven superior performance and extended life.
The highest standards of vibration suppression
Trelleborg Industrial AVS designed the MDS (multi-directional snubbing) mount specifically to ensure the highest standards of vibration suppression and low noise in the engines and cabs of today's advanced off-highway vehicles. ACE tested the mounts both in prototype compactors and in their SPV (special purpose vehicle) range and found that they outperformed competitors' products by a wide margin, as well as demonstrating a longer service life. Details of the new compactor have not yet been announced but ACE plans to manufacture 250 in its first full year of production.
The MDS range is designed to maintain stability in the engines and cabs of small to medium excavators, skid steer loaders, and compactors as well as larger vehicles, such as articulated dump trucks and maxi wheel loaders. MDS mounts are installed in pairs via a two-part, single-bolt installation, which will absorb high dynamic shock loads while limiting movement in all directions.
The TrellExtreme® MDS mount is designed for maximum vertical dynamic snubbing from +/- 6mm and horizontal dynamic snubbing from +/- 3mm. The standard range accommodates static vertical loads from 70 to 500 kg. with a deflection at a maximum static load of 2.5mm to 4mm and axial to radial stiffness ratio of 1.5:1 rising to 3:1.
