Adjustable steel chocks - SKF Vibracon
Reduce chocking time with easy-to-use chocking solutions
SKF provides a range of adjustable steel chocks for new-build and repair situations. The chocks are easy to use and accommodate differences in both height and angle. This significantly reduces chocking time for machinery.
SKF Vibracon original
SKF Vibracon elements are machinery mounting chocks that are easily and accurately adjusted. The elements accommodate the angular difference between machine and the mounting base without expensive machining of the base or extra work of installing epoxy resin chocks. The self-leveling capability combined with the height adjustment feature eliminates the possibility of a soft foot in the production line through the life cycle of the machinery.
SKF Vibracon low profile
The low profile elements offer an economic solution for repair projects or fixed-design systems where expensive filled chocks, shims or epoxy resins were previously applied. SKF Vibracon low profile configuration addresses those applications where the chock height between the foundation and component has been established by the previous design.
An excellent complement to adjustable steel chocks, spherical washers support a four degree angular difference between the mounting base and the machine, allowing for optimal mounting of machinery. Advantages include automatically re-adjusting to the required angle and eliminating the need to spot face underneath the foundation, which is often impossible due to lack of space.
Spherical washers are typically produced out of high grade alloy steel, but are available in other materials by request.
