Industrial Suspension Systems

Industrial Suspension Systems

Truck drivers and heavy machinery operators spend a lot of their time in harsh and unpleasant vibration environments. Ride quality not only is a safety issue for the operator, but also passengers and bystanders. The vertical movement of the seat as it travels from bottom to top end-stops while driving over rough terrain can cause the operator to lose control. If you hit the bottom end-stop, your back hurts. If you hit the top end-stop, you might hit the headliner or your feet and hands could come off the controls.

To meet this challenge, we developed adaptive suspension systems using our Magneto-Rheological (MR) fluid. It is characterized by the capacity to alter suspension settings to suit different driving or road surface conditions. Unlike a passive suspension with fixed damping, adaptive suspension systems adjust the damping rate thousands of times per second to provide improved dynamic stability.
