Earthquake protection of machines
In many respects, humans depend on machines. The whole industrial economic cycle is based on producing and selling goods. Machines play a vital role here. There is almost nothing left that is not produced or, in one way or another, processed with machines. If machines fail suddenly and over a large area - during and after an earthquake, for example - there are severe restrictions in the industrial and economic network within a short time.
Earthquake-resistant installation of machines
How can I protect my machines against an earthquake? This question is justified after the above expositions. Below, we want to present the four most effective measures to protect a machine against the impact of an earthquake: In the following article "Earthquake-resistant installation of machines" we want to present the four most effective measures to protect a machine against the impact of an earthquake:
- Foundation with elastic support = foundation isolation
- Adjustable levelers for machines with elastic facing
- Horizontal supports
- Anchoring of machines
