Unparalleled Protection for the Most Demanding Applications
The PUMPKIN™ Mount is a shock and vibration isolator developed by Thornton Tomasetti and manufactured by Taylor Devices, Inc. This patent-protected mount design has been successfully shock tested in naval environments where explosive shock standards are extremely rigorous, reducing input accelerations of several hundred g down to an average of 15g or less.
A unique combination of materials, processes, and damping characteristics results in an isolator with superior performance under shock and vibration through environmental extremes within a relatively small volume and high payload capacity. These devices have the added benefit of lateral symmetry and extended weight capacity to support up to 1600kg per mount and maintain good acceleration attenuation without risk of compression impact.
PUMPKIN™ Mounts are designed for use in military applications including protection against underwater shock (UNDEX) events. They can also be used for various civil engineering, industrial, and transportation applications particularly when 6 degree-of-freedom protection is required.
