LORD Main and Tail Rotor Dampers (Lead Lag Dampers) use Fluidlastic™ technology or highly damped elastomers to manage dynamic energy.
These dampers have set the industry standard for highly customizable energy dissipation. Fluidlastic technology allows very high energy loss to be engineered into small packages and customized for the application. Both fluidlastic and elastomeric dampers contain no sliding seals, so they are impervious to the effects of dust and dirt, unlike traditional dampers. In a dynamically complex application like a rotorcraft (helicopter), LORD rotor dampers fulfill a critical vibration management function.
LORD solutions can be found on various rotary wing aircraft. LORD is both an OEM and MRO solution provider - if you are an owner or operator of one of these platforms, please visit our MRO Services page.
