ITT Enidine to Showcase Innovative Shock and Vibration Solutions for Defense Applications at SAVE

’s (NYSE:ITT) Enidine brand will
showcase a comprehensive portfolio of highly engineered energy
absorption and vibration isolation solutions for military and defense
applications at the 2018 Shock
and Vibration Exchange (SAVE) Symposium
in Dallas, Nov. 4–8.

ITT Enidine will showcase custom and off-the-shelf engineering
capabilities, along with a wide range of high-damping product solutions
for military and defense applications at Booth 506. The Symposium is a
five-day event serving as the leading forum for the structural dynamics
and vibration community to present and discuss new technologies and the
latest research.

In addition to displaying their portfolio of shock and vibration
products, Mark Downing, ITT Enidine Principal Engineer, Elastomer
Products, an expert in the field, will lead a symposium session
“Simulating Barge Shock Event Using Non-linear 6 DOF Analysis.” The
session will cover barge shock considerations for MIL-S-901, compare
benefits of linear versus non-linear analysis, and offer reasons why
single degree of freedom (SDOF) calculations are useful, even though
6DOF tools are readily available. The presentation promotes the use of
an analysis cycle (an evolution of tools) that is tied to system

ITT Enidine experts understand that validating and defining a customer’s
system is paramount for success. Lead engineers like Downing integrate
with customer engineering teams to perform a systems level analysis
where they consult, validate and confirm that the optimal application is
selected and customized. This comprehensive system analysis considers
available envelope space for any damping application, risk assessment of
bottoming and understanding an application’s load-deflection curve.

“ITT Enidine has a 50-year legacy of innovating to solve our customers’
engineering challenges and we remain committed to providing our defense
market partners with an integrated solution,” said Mark Ott, Principal
Engineer, ITT Enidine. “Our standard shock and vibration products are
available to be customized, and we combine fluid and elastomeric
technologies to offer a proprietary solution that is designed,
manufactured, tested, and delivered from a single source.”

During SAVE, ITT Enidine will showcase shock and vibration solutions

  • HERMS:
    High Energy Rope Mount (HERM) Isolators are manufactured using wire
    rope isolators over-molded with highly damped elastomer, making them a
    “fail-safe” design with a wider load range capability than standard
    wire rope isolators. During molding, the wire rope is forced in a more
    elliptical shape, offering improved tension deflection capability and
    less compression set than wire rope isolators. The additional damping
    and tension deflection capability results in lower shock response
    accelerations. HERMS are incorporated on a wide range of defense
    applications including NAVY cabinet isolation and rafted deck systems,
    radar systems, weapons, and vehicles.
  • SKID
    : These isolators are designed to protect and ensure the
    performance of equipment within critical systems. These large
    displacement isolators provide shock and vibration isolation under a
    wide range of environmental conditions and enable safe transport of
    missiles by land or air with a unique elastomeric technology. The US
    Navy’s Helios laser weapons system relies on an assortment of Enidine
    motion control components including SKID isolators and High-Energy
    Rope Mounts (HERMS)
    to protect this high-impact, triple-threat defense system.
  • SIDAS:
    Shock Isolator Double Acting Spring (SIDAS) solutions are designed,
    developed and patented by ITT Enidine. The SIDAS design combines a
    preloaded mechanical spring to provide static preload forces with a
    low-pressure hydraulic damper to provide dynamic damping forces.
  • Wire
    Rope Isolators
    : Constructed of stainless-steel cable and aluminum
    retaining bars, the ITT Enidine wire rope isolators attenuate shock
    and vibration, protecting machinery and equipment. The all-metal
    construction ensures they are completely unaffected by oil, chemicals,
    abrasives, ozone or temperature extremes.
  • Compact
    Wire Rope Isolators
    : Compact wire rope isolators provide shock and
    vibration isolation — even in situations where package space is at a
    premium — with a compact design that’s smaller than ITT Enidine’s
    standard wire rope isolators.

ITT Enidine representatives will be available throughout SAVE at Booth
506 at the Hyatt Regency Dallas. For more information regarding
