Seat Suspensions Where to Buy

LORD Corporation has produced more than 250,000 MR Seat Suspension systems since 1998 for various Agricultural, Construction and Commercial Vehicles. Our system includes a MR Damper, a control unit with an integrated position sensor, and an optional ride mode switch for the driver to select between different suspension settings. Our semi-active seat suspension system has proven to dramatically improve driver comfort, fatigue and safety over current passive systems, at a fraction of the cost of fully-active systems.

Customized Semi-Active Seat Suspension Solutions

LORD can also develop new solutions with unique product requirements for applications requiring instantaneous and precise control of variable force.

Benefits of LORD MR Seat Suspension System

Customized controllable damping significantly improves vehicle ride comfort, handling and safety.

  • Fail-safe (becomes a passive damper) or fail-firm (becomes rigid) design options if electrical power is lost
  • Better protection for cargo or goods
Simple electro-mechanical design is easy to integrate, improves reliability and reduces total cost.
  • No additional packaging space required versus conventional passive dampers
  • No maintenance required
  • Reduced wear on suspension and drivetrain components
