Anything which resists or deadens a bump or shock, such as a metal or rubber rim extending from an object; a buffer.
a protective guard device, usually of metal or rubber, attached horizontally to the front or rear of the frame of a vehicle, designed to resist or deaden a bump or shock, and to prevent damage to the main frame of the vehicle in low-velocity collisions.
a rubber like (polymer based) device inserted into a knee or ankle component as a resistance or extension aid. Bumpers come in different durometers (color coded) which allow the amputee to have different resistance levels.) CAT/CAM, (Contoured Anterior Trochanteric/Controlled Alignment Method): The popular term coined by John Sabolich, CPO for his socket shape derived from the work of Ivan Long, CP. The term was replaced by the trademarked name "Sabolich Socket" do to internal conflicts within the prosthetic industry that prohibited trade-marking CAT/CAM in the United Sates.
a mechanical device consisting of bars at either end of a vehicle to absorb shock and prevent serious damage
an essential parts of a car designed to allow one vehicle to push another and to withstand the impact from collisions
a part of a car designed to allow one vehicle to push another and to withstand the impact from collisions
a shield made of steel, aluminum, rubber, or plastic that is mounted on the front and rear of a passenger car
a standard part of the car mounted on the front and the rear of the passenger cars that is designed as a protective shield leaving the vehicle undamaged in case a low collision occurs
A part placed on the front and back of vehicles used to absorb damage during an accident.
Material used to cushion impact of boats from the side of the dock. Horizontal bumper for the dock frame. Vertical bumper for piling and vertical structures. Material should stay resilient without marring the boat. Weathering of the material is the main consideration -- less expensive materials tend to break down (i.e. harden, crack and/or mar boats) after only a couple of years.
Special rubber like material that absorbs extra energy from the piston at the bottom of its stroke. Its purpose is to prevent tool damage from high pressure.
the rubber knob on the bottom of the cue which protects it when rested on the floor. Novices often incorrectly refer to the cushions on a pool table as bumpers.
an energy absorbing device for reducing impact when a moving crane or trolley reaches the end of its permitted travel, or when two moving cranes or trolleys come into contact.
Device that absorbs shock between two objects, such as vehicles. Normally made of a resilient material, which moves easily or, alternately, have hydraulic or pneumatic cylinders that permit it to move when hit.
The parts on a vehicle that protect the front and rear ends in the event of an accident. Some trucks and SUVs have a tow bumper (or step bumper) for attaching a hitch ball for towing.
An internal compression stop. Generally a molded rubber part attached inside an air actuator. ( 058)
The part on a vehicle which protects the front and rear ends in the event of an accident, although some on trucks may have facilities for towing, the bumper should NEVER be used as a towing device. BUMPER TYPES STEP A bumper which is intended to be used as a step. STOCK The original bumper on a vehicle, (also refers to NOT a step bumper). COWBOY Same as "DEEP DROP". DEEP DROP A step bumper shaped like a "V" to lower the step surface in the center. ROLL PAN Not really a bumper but a facsia panel used instead of a bumper. This bumper is common on lowered trucks. OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) This is the bumper that comes on your vehicle from the factory. This term is used when only one choice is available from the factory.
A device for reducing impact when a moving crane or trolley reaches the end of its permitted travel, or when two moving cranes or trolleys come into contact. This device may be attached to the bridge, trolley or runway stop.
Wall protector for sliding shower door assembly designed to cushion impact.
located on the rear of a vehicle to protect and absorb the front and rear ends in the event of an accident.
A bumper is a part of a automobile designed to allow one vehicle to impact with another and to withstand that collision without severe damage to the vehicle's frame. Brush guards, push bars, etc. were added "after-market" to bumpers of automobiles, pickups, trucks, and utility vehicles since at least the 1920s to provide additional protection to the vehicle. While bumpers were originally made of heavy steel, in later years they have been constructed of rubber, plastic, or painted light metal leaving them susceptible to damage from even minimal contact.
