In our latest Technology Tuesdays podcast, Design World’s Michelle Froese speaks with David Church, president of Sorbothane, about innovative shock and vibration solutions. Sorbothane has been developing materials and components that isolate vibration, attenuate shock, and damp unwanted noise for more than 35 years. We discuss visco-elastic technology and the Sorbothane brand of material, including… [Read More]
Vibration in industrial machinery often originates from imbalances inherent to motors, gearboxes, and other turning component that excites natural frequencies. Dampers in this context are components that counteract and often isolate the vibration source from the rest of the design or machine — to prevent its propagation of mechanical oscillation. Watch the recent video on […][Read More]
For mission-critical motion systems, any oscillation can cause damage to the machines themselves, the product they’re used to manufacture and the people operating them. From shock damping materials to more advanced dampers, wire rope attenuators and shock absorbers, these components can be engineered and designed to meet specific needs, ensuring machines can run faster and… [Read More]
