Misumi USA announces the availability of a new type of Shock Absorbing Bumper, designed for use in a host of automated factory automation and motion control machinery and devices. Bumpers are installed to mitigate shock, sound and vibration caused by moving machine parts as they strike the targeted surface.
Now, for the first time, Misumi offers a urethane-based synthetic rubber bumper construction featuring a super flexible gel for superior cushioning and shock absorption, coupled with a stainless steel core, which provides improved strength and durability for longer service life.
The urethane-based rubber material excels in mechanical strength, abrasion resistance and light oil resistance. The shock absorbing gel is extremely soft with an Asker F hardness rating of 75. The major performance advantage provided by the super flexible gel is that it allows the bumper to recover its original shape, in multiple directions, in just one to two seconds following compression.
Misumi’s new Shock Absorbing Bumpers are available in two product types:
—Tapped Bumpers (Part GELMR), which come in six variations
—Threaded Bumpers (Part GELMF), which come in three variations
