Providing custom gasket solutions for applications requiring shock absorption and vibration control
When a device, a system, or even the human body is subjected to mechanical shock such as a drop or a bump, the result can be fractures, mechanical failure or personal injury. Protection in the area of shock absorption can be achieved by using high-performance, lightweight materials to isolate impact and damp vibration. For automotive, aircraft, electronics and industrial applications, effective shock absorption must be able to withstand the effects of compression and repeated use while managing and absorbing damaging impact energy.
Vibration Damping & Isolation
Vibration damping is a term that’s used in industrial, electronic and ergonomic applications when there is a need to reduce the amount of energy that’s produced by the system. A vibration damper takes energy out of the system. When you increase the damping in a mechanism or structure there will be a reduction in vibration and noise and the dynamic stresses applied will be reduced with a resulting benefit to the fatigue life, among many other benefits. Vibration management is a key factor in the design of products for transportation, consumer goods and industrial markets. Vibration can be both a source of annoying noise and the cause of damage to delicate components, which is why engineers need to source materials that offer high performance features.
