Mechanical vibration and shock - Vibration isolation of machines - Information for the application of source isolation
This European Standard gives guidelines to ensure that manufacturers of machines provide adequate information on application of vibration isolation to reduce the risks arising from vibration generated by their machines. Guidelines are also provided to ensure that users furnish sufficient information regarding their applications to suppliers of machines or, where applicable, to the supplier of the isolation system, to enable the optimum selection and design of vibration isolation.
This European Standard is restricted to source isolation.
Although this standard is primarily intended for the use of new machines, it may be applied to the installation of used machines, too.
This European Standard is addressed to manufacturers and installers of a machine, as a guide to define relevant parameters for the choice and installation of a vibration isolation system to be used with the machine.
NOTE This European Standard may also be applied by users of machines already installed, who use or wish to use vibration isolation to solve a vibration problem caused by the machine.
This European Standard shall not be considered as a manual for the design or installation of an isolation system. Examples of elements of vibration isolation are shown in Annex A only for information.
