Vibration Reduction on Machines and Plants

In order to influence the vibration behavior of machines and plants, there are various approaches. Which of the measures listed below is most suitable for your specific vibration problem and whether it is possible to implement it depends on many parameters – for example, the vibration level to be achieved or the installation space.

  • Mass balance
  • Balancing
  • Optimization of the drive or its control system

  • Optimizing the natural frequency position through design adaptations

  • Semi-active components

  • Adapting cycle times or speeds

Vibration reduction on existing machines and plants

For machines that are already in operation, the number of implementable vibration reduction measures is usually significantly lower. The task here is to find and implement the best possible solution in a short time and without costly trial-and-error procedures. The typical process is as follows:

1. Vibration measurement

2. Vibration reduction concept

3. Implementation

Our specialties


While some tasks – for example, making production more efficient or reliable and complying with occupational health and safety regulations – are similar for all machine types, there are also individual challenges in each industry. Over the past decades, in countless projects for manufacturers and operators of paper machines and machine tools, we have been able to build up valuable specialist knowledge in these industries:
