Vibration isolator is a material which is placed at the bottom of the small or heavy machineries in mechanical industries to reduce vibration of machine in dynamic condition. Recent years, the materials used in the isolation pad are elastomeric pads or mounts, helical steel springs, wire rope springs, and air springs. In this paper, we deal with increasing the performance of isolation pad from existing one by changing the design and material of the isolation pad. Existing design has a spring isolator and two new design models are created from the existing "Spring Isolator" model. The redesigned model has a helical spring with a parabolic shaped part, attached to it and the other model is helical spring with the spherical ball shaped part, attached to it. The design models have been designed in solid works. Static and dynamic analysis have been performed in ANSYS Workbench.
