Modern mechanical engineering is developing in one direction: increased productivity.
For all modern mechanical engineers and machine developers, the focus is therefore on increasing the cutting parameters and the machining depth. Even the smallest influences can cause malfunctions in the production process. The result is then increased tool costs, maintenance costs, poorer tool properties and a reduced service life of the entire machine tool.
The correct selection of the machine base is therefore the cornerstone for bringing the interaction between the machine frame and moving parts to the fore.
With the tried-and-tested vibration-damping properties of Hydropol®, Hydropol-Light® and Hydropol-Superlight® were specially developed to meet the requirements of dynamic components.
Thanks to the low specific weight of our new materials, vibrations can be damped where they occur on the machine - on the contact point between the tool and workpiece - the Tool Center Point - TCP.
The low weight also enables higher dynamics or reduces the drive power.
Hydropol-Light® and Hydropol-Superlight® can be used optimally for moving units such as carriages, slides, milling heads, crossbeams, gantries, columns etc.
Density: up to 2,500 kg/m³
Modulus of elasticity: up to 60,000 N/mm²
Pressure-resistant: up to 100 N/mm²
Density: up to 1,200 kg/m³
Modulus of elasticity: up to 12,000 N/mm²
Pressure-resistant: up to 10 N/mm²
HYDROPOL® super light is the lightest Hydropol with a density of 650 kg/m³. Due to its low specific weight, HYDROPOL® super light is particularly suited to dynamic components such as carriages, slides and bed carriages. Despite its low density, super light has high dampening values.
Modulus of elasticity approx. 5000 N/mm²
HYDROPOL® XX light was specially developed to keep the mass of moving machine parts (e.g. carriages, moving columns) as low as possible. Despite the low density, HYDROPOL® XX light has extremely high material damping. This means that vibrations are absorbed as early as the tool center point level.
Modulus of elasticity approx. 100 N/mm²
Our employees are responsible for the quality of our products . The highly trained fitters and welders connect the components according to different standards .
If you want we can issue a special certificate for our welded parts.
