MacLellan Rubber is supplying moulded Sorbothane pads to absorb low level vibrations in an aerospace technology application. Our solution is helping to improve performance, minimise localised disruption and reduce maintenance costs.
MacLellan Rubber were asked by an Aerospace equipment manufacturer to identify a solution to the problem of low level vibration which was affecting highly sensitive sensor technology in-flight. The oscillation level of vibrations fell significantly below the levels associated with the heavy engineering solutions MacLellan typically work with on a day to day basis. Other factors we had to consider were the size and weight of our proposed solution. In addition, due to the high security nature of the application, there were restrictions on the information that was available about the equipment.
Our challenge was to deliver a simple solution without complex installation procedures that would meet the relevant quality controls for both the Aerospace and Electronics sectors.
