The TICO brand name has always been associated with quality and service in the field of machine mounting materials. Our experience also covers the design and production of custom made elastomeric bearings for use on bridges, buildings and the railway industry. Drawing on this wide range of experience, we now offer LOADTECH our Load Bearing Technology Service.
Much industrial equipment relies on elastomeric bearings for shock absorption, flexible movement or as a resilient load bearer. LOADTECH is a complete design, testing and production service for these bearings.
The Straddle Carrier Suspension Ring is an example of a LOADTECH bearing, which has been specifically designed as a replacement for hydraulic suspension systems on large container carriers.
TICO LOADTECH Bearings have been designed for a number of different impact absorption and buffering applications. A particular example are buffer rings on counter blow hammers, where they are subjected to very high impact forces.
Using our Darttec 2000KN and Mayes 1000KN hydraulic test rings, we can access finished components and match performance against design criteria. In addition we can test an existing component and produce a design for a LOADTECH Bearing, to give a similar or modified performance.
Typical performance criteria may include load/deflection, natural frequency and stiffness. Data capture equipment enables documentary evidence of test results in graphical or report form to be made available.
