Abstract: The comparison was performed concerning the load carrying capacity, the energy dissipation coefficient, life-time, dimensional, mass and amplitude-frequency characteristics of vibration isolators made of pressed wire materials MR (Russia) and Spring Cushion (Germany). The vibration isolators made of MR material have a higher load-bearing capacity (3-4 times) and damping properties (1.5-2 times) at original resource, provide lower (1.5-2 times, respectively) gain and frequency ratios within the resonant oscillation modes.
