Unique Urethane Dampens Shocks and Noise 

February 03, 2015

A proprietary visco-elastic polyurethane offers design engineers unique opportunities to dampen vibrations and noise in mechanical systems. Sorobothane® is a thermoset, polyether-based polyurethane solid that flows like a liquid under load while retaining excellent memory.

 

Study finds Sorbothane Ultra Orthotic Arch to be the Most Comfortable Arch Support 

February 03, 2015

The purpose of this experiment was to discuss the conditions of individuals with flat feet and fallen arches and to investigate the effects of arch support orthotics on those individuals. Evidence from previous research, as well as in this experiment, does suggest that arch supports do improve comfort for wearers. By comparing various brands and using a controlled amount of shoe types the study was applied to two users who had either low arches or none at all on their feet. The student researcher considered ergonomic approaches to the problem including the anthropometric measurements, the biomechanical approach, and Frederick Taylor’s adaptation of the scientific management methodology.

 

What Is Viscoelastic Material? 

February 03, 2015

Sorbothane was developed in Ohio in the 1980s. It is a viscoelastic material that uses many of the same properties of others in that genre. Viscoelastic materials were first developed in the late twentieth century and used for a wide range of applications. The list of items that can be made with viscoelastic materials would cover the whole gamut from tiny (ear plugs) to enormous, (mechanical applications used in factories) and everything in between. It is a material that has applications not only for companies big and small but for individuals as well.

 

Vibration Protection 

February 03, 2015

If you think of the human body as a very complex and rather delicate machine, the need for certain types of protection becomes more obvious. For instance, protecting humans from heat, cold or wetness is the role that is assumed by clothing, by outerwear and by shoes. It is important to keep the basic needs of humans in mind when developing new products. For the most part, everything that they buy has to provide protection of some kind, make something easier or provide comfort. In some cases, products or parts of products are meant to do all of the above.

 

Vibration Suppression 

February 03, 2015

Vibration is an interesting problem for a number of people. Joggers have to be concerned about vibration that affects their feet and legs while they are running. That vibration can destroy their energy and their performance. Vibration becomes a problem for workers of different types, including people doing manual labor and people working in laboratories. There are many different ways to try to suppress this vibration and all of the problems that it causes.

 

Anti Vibration Camera Mounts 

February 03, 2015

If you have a camera, you want to take photos that are clear and at least an approximate likeness of whatever you are shooting. Whether you are an amateur with a once in a lifetime shot or you are professional trying to get the shots that actually pay your bills, you know that you need to do anything that you can to eliminate issues with the camera as well as anything that might destroy the perfection of your finished shot. There are two major issues that you need to be aware of: the loss of the shot and the potential damage to the camera itself. Depending on where you are using the camera, that damage might be even more serious.

 

Camera Vibration 

February 03, 2015

Sports photography is one part art, one part science and one part timing. Throw in a little bit of luck, a little bit of the right placement and you have the makings of a potentially earth shattering photo at any given second in the game. There could be no better example than the Stanley Cup Playoffs, the quest for the oldest trophy of all major sports. Imagine being the person who gets to document that moment in photos and what that would mean to your career. You would also have to think of all the things around you that could potentially kill those photos by making your camera move too much.

 

Vibration Solutions 

February 03, 2015

Vibration and excessive movement cause problems for people and for sensitive equipment. From the smallest applications to the largest installations in the world and everything in between, scientists have looked for ways to minimize the effects of vibration in and around the human body. Whether it is for a machine or for a man, these vibration solutions have to do several things. First and most obviously, they have to minimize some of the vibrations that happen by nature and by the use of certain items. Second, it has to prevent movement that is caused by that vibration. Finally, it has to provide protection for key components or comfort for humans, whichever may be the case.

 

Vibration Isolator 

February 03, 2015

Vibration is a fact of life. Even if you are standing perfectly still, there are muscle fibers twitching inside of your body. There are vibrations being picked up by your body from the surface you are standing on. Traffic driving past creates vibration. Machines in the same room or adjoining rooms can cause movement. Even an elevator that is down the hallway can cause vibrations that are transferred via the skeleton of the building and then sent to the floor you are standing on. Certain people need to eliminate as much of this vibration as possible, especially when they are working. Scientists and inventors, for instance, need to isolate vibration so that they do not disturb their delicate creations and calculations.

 

Shock Absorbing Material: Attenuating Shock and Vibration 

February 03, 2015

Why is Sorbothane such an amazing shock absorbing material? Why is it that a small shock absorbing pad made of this visco-elastic polymer blend can absorb impact and shock better than one that is twice as big made of another material? Why can’t you just double up on an elastic material or use a foam based material in a much larger pad size and be done with it? What if that padding material is half the cost of Sorbothane, even if you are using twice as much? Wouldn’t that be worth it?
