Abstract

A technique is described whereby mechanisms, such as printers and similar devices, are provided with an improved shock mount using dynafocal design technology to provide isolation from noise and shock. Typically, printer mechanisms are isolated acoustically and dynamically from covers and base housings with rubber shock absorbing mounts primarily loaded in compression mode. Using the dynafocal design techniques shown in the drawing, the angle of each shock mount is such that it faces the center of gravity of the mechanism with its center axis in alignment with the center of gravity. This type of mounting provides both shear and compression absorption from the same shock mount.
