Mackay U-Flex isolators are general purpose isolators which offer excellent
protection against vibration and shock to a wide range of applications
including electronic apparatus, vibrators feeders, general machinery, as
well as equipment in packing cases during transit.
U-Flex isolators are most flexible in directions X and Y (refer drawing)
when the rubber is used in shear, and offer greater stiffness in direction
Z where the rubber is used in compression. This characteristic is particularly
useful when limitation of movement is required in one direction.
If used as engine supports, the U-Flex isolator should be employed so
that the maximum flexibility (X) is used vertically, and (Y) at right angles
to the crankshaft, as the vibrations are most severe in these directions.
