A shock buffer is a mechanism designed to absorb and dissipate shock or impact forces in order to protect equipment or structures from damage. Shock buffers are commonly used in various applications such as automotive, aerospace, marine, and industrial equipment.
There are several types of shock buffers, including mechanical, hydraulic, pneumatic, and elastomeric buffers. Mechanical buffers use springs or other mechanical components to absorb and dissipate impact forces. Hydraulic buffers use fluids to absorb and dissipate shock, while pneumatic buffers use compressed air or gas to cushion impacts. Elastomeric buffers are made of rubber or other elastomers and provide a flexible, deformable surface that absorbs and dissipates impact forces.
