- THE ROTACHOCK® MOUNTING PLATE HAS THE FOLLOWING DESIGN FEATURES:
- Spherical top ring for angular difference up to 2° between the machine foot and the foundation.
- Tool groove and holes to aid installation with a wide range of tools.
- Buttress thread design for maximum strength and stiffness.
- Standard ACE finish: Anti-Corrosion Enhanced for cost-effective corrosion protection.
- The footprint is large and reduces surface pressure.
- Type Approved by all major classification societies.
The installation of resilient mounts can be challenging. The rubber mount’s base plate must be aligned perfectly parallel to the machine foot to ensure optimal vibration damping.
The traditional way to set up the resilient mount is to use the four adjustment bolts to eliminate any angle between the cap and the base plate and then to ﬁll the gap between the base plate of the mount and the foundation with two-component epoxy resin or a tailor-made steel-ﬁtted block.
The RotaChock® BasicLine consists of 10 different sizes ranging from 51 mm to 254 mm outside diameter and covering the full range of M12 up to M72 foundation bolts. The rated load of RotaChock® increases with the outer diameter. RotaChock® BasicLine can be supplied in a variety of materials.
We advise the use of our standard RotaChock® BasicLine that is manufactured from S355 (DIN1.0570) and Anti-Corrosion Enhanced for regular applications. For maximum protection against corrosion in extreme environments, RotaChock® BasicLine can be supplied in stainless steel (316L). For maximum strength when handling extreme forces, RotaChock® BasicLine can be supplied in alloy steel (i.e., 34CrNiMo6).
The RotaChock® Mounting Plate offers an economical alternative to epoxy resin or tailor-made steel-ﬁtted blocks. The adjustment bolts in the RotaChock® Mounting Plate are used to eliminate any angle between the mount’s foundation and base plate. Now the four RotaChock® at the corners are adjusted to fill the gap. The base plate, RotaChock® Mounting Plate, and machine foundation are then tightened together securely with four foundation bolts.
The mounting system can be readjusted at any time if required. Just loosen the foundation bolts and adjust the RotaChock® Mounting Plate to meet your target alignment. The time needed to ﬁnish a typical resiliently mounted machine can be cut back from several days to only a few hours.
