The Silentflex metal cushions are made from stainless steel wire, knitted, embossed and highly compressed, in order to achieve the wanted geometric shape.

Our metal cushions range has more than 950 standard references and could provide up to 2000 special choices, each one with their own characteristics (range of loads supported, static stiffness, natural frequency and % damping).

However, thanks to our capacity of manufacture metallic cushions, Silentflex can develop and provide particular shapes and characteristics, adjusted to special requests of our customers.


- Load static range: 200 - 2700 Kg (Dynamic: up to 8100 Kg)

- Support temperatures: from - 67 to + 300 degrees

- Natural frequency: 15 - 20 Hz

- Damping: 15 - 20%

- Provide progressive stiffening: provide a constant natural frequency under a very wide range of loads, using a small space volume

- All-metall dampers: metallic cushions Silentflex are manufactured in 100% stainless steel, AISI-304 or even AISI-316 for corrosive ambients (Chemical Industry, aeronautics, etc.)

- Are naturally resistant to grease, oil, water, among others

- Specially suitable to damp rotating machines (over 2000 rpm)
