Magnet Armature Shock Absorber

Both lateral and vertical armature, and magnet and associated structural vibrations caused by impact forces applied to the armature are dampened by this shock absorber assembly.

The structure for obtaining a reduction of undesirable vibrations as shown includes a bracket 4, holding plate 6, and damper 5 disposed between plate 6 and bracket 4. Screws 7 are threaded into upright 14 on horseshoe bracket 3 on which is mounted electromagnet 1 having leads 12 and 13. Damper 5 and bracket 4 are slideably mounted on the screws 7. The upper part of bracket 4 has uprights 9 for lateral restraint of armature 2 which is biased by spring 8 attached to spring hooks 10 and 11. When the end of armature 2 opposite spring hook 10 is struck and a force is thus transmitted along it's length, the bracket 4 will be displaced, but dampened by damper 5. Damper 5 is slightly higher than plate 6 and provides vertical damping since it is contacted by armature 2 when the electromagnet is de-energized. Thus damper 5 provides both lateral and vertical damping.
