Buffer type ANB consists of a cylindrical rubber body bonded to a square baseplate of steel. Each corner of the baseplate has a fixing hole. Special high-hysteresis rubber compound is used to ensure as much energy absorption as possible. The volume of the rubber is used at optimum efficiency. For new machine developments simpler designs and lighter calculated forces can be considered enabling a lower cost.
Through the damping of the rubber a high degree of energy absorption is achieved. The rubber is stiffer under dynamic conditions compared to static or pseudo static loading; hence more energy is absorbed for a given deformation. The shock buffer type ANB is used to effectively limit movement of equipment or machine components.
Typical applications include:
• Lifting cranes
• Forestry vehicles
• Material handling equipment
These buffers are made from an oil and chemical resistant Nitrile rubber.
