Alignment for the industry Vibracon® - machinery mounting chocks

SKF Vibracon

SKF Vibracon chocks are our permanent, strong and re-usable machinery mounting chocks for all types of rotating or critically aligned machinery. Using SKF Vibracon chocks is the most economical way to establish a perfect mounting plane. As SKF Vibracon mounts are mechanically stiff chocks, accurate mounting is made simple and quick.

Advantages:

  • Absence of curing time
  • Eliminates the trial and error alignment process
  • Adjustability during the life cycle of the machinery

The Original

SKF Vibracon chocks are machinery mounting chocks that are easily and accurately adjusted. The chocks accommodate up to a 4° angular difference between machine and the mounting base without expensive machining of the base or extra work of installing epoxy resin chocks. The self levelling capability combined with the height adjustment feature eliminates the possibility of a soft foot in the production line.

The Low Profile

The Low Profile chocks offer an economic solution for repair projects or fixed design systems where expensive milled chocks, shims or epoxy resins were applied. The SKF Vibracon Low Profile configuration addresses those applications where the chock height between the foundation and component has been established by the previous design. A variety of adjustment tools for confined installation spaces are available.

Specialized Solutions

Vibracons are not limited to the two types mentioned. Many additional configuration and material options are available and routinely deployed to solve mounting problems.

Typical solutions include:

  • Extended SKF Vibracon
  • SKF Spherical Washer
  • Concrete mounting kit
  • Slotted chocks
  • Shock hardened SKF Vibracon
  • Additional bottom ring
  • Stopper

It is advisable to order SKF Spherical Washers to accompany your Vibracons in order to optimize the mounting of your machinery.
