Lightweight Active Vibration Control System Allows Helicopter to Fly High

(03/09/2010)

Active Vibration System

Even the most state-of-the-art technology sometimes has room for improvement. Although a recently developed light helicopter had already achieved remarkable feats – it’s the only helicopter in the world to have flown over the Himalayas and Mt. Everest – the company that built the helicopter sought a way to minimize vibration in the fuselage of the 12-passenger, two-crew-member aircraft.

They turned to LORD and we relied on our proven Active Vibration Control System, which employs active Frahms to reduce vibration in the fuselage generated by the main rotor and the rotor aerodynamics. With a system weight that is less than 1 percent of the aircraft’s gross weight, our system provides the aircraft with the unique ability to respond to a variety of factors, depending on the mission.
