Anti-Vibration

February 02, 2015

Controlling vibration – or anti-vibration control – is very important for many reasons including damage to the human body and damage to structural or mechanical systems. Some of the most common anti vibration control application include pads, gloves, specially designed feet for machinery, mounts and tables. Of course these are just a sampling of the simple solutions around us every day.

Anti Vibration Solutions:

Protection of The Human Body

Sorbothane® brings a superior level of comfort when used to protect the human body. Sorbothane® palm pads provide protection in anti-vibration gloves for example. We produce these pads for several glove manufacturers who assemble them into their premium gloves, SorboGelT, a translucent version of Sorbothane® is also offered as a lighter weight alternative to Sorbothane®. SorboGelT is usually applied when minimum weight and maximum protection are desired in an application.

Vibration Isolation In Extreme Conditions

Formula One engines have anywhere between 600-1000 horsepower and they can put out about 12000-19000 rpm. For extreme situations like this, Sorbothane® anti-vibration isolators absorb axial and lateral forces generated at speeds in excess of 180 mph. Shock and vibration are minimized so that the on-board camera can focus cleanly. Shock absorption and vibration isolation in the same material.

In high value electronics where you need a great anti-vibration solution, Sorbothane® works.
