Industrial Suspension Systems

Suspension systems in today’s industrial equipment are evolving. Traditional passive spring and damper systems react to load inputs from the wheels and body, and exhibit relatively constant spring rates and damping forces regardless of the road and load conditions. In contrast, adaptive suspension systems continuously alter their suspension settings in real time to suit different driving or road surface conditions providing improved dynamic stability.

During our long history, LORD has gained experience designing dampers with varying capabilities. Our systems are incredibly flexible and well-suited to a wide range of applications with damper forces ranging from 1,700 N to 38,000 N (and higher). LORD Corporation offers unique adaptive suspensions that leverage our proprietary Magneto-Rheological (MR) fluid technology, which support different suspension applications including primary (axle), cab, seating and more.

LORD magneto-rheological (MR) fluids can respond instantly to varying levels of a magnetic field precisely and proportionally for controllable energy-dissipating applications, such as brakes, shocks and dampers.
