Vibration Damping Material

Vibration Damping Material

Notebook computers, PDAs, car navigation systems, mobile phones, and many other types of electronic equipment are subject to vibration from internal, as well as external sources, such as accidental dropping.

Vibration damping is a crucial requirement for most electronic systems. Vibration is a main source of damage to electronic components and connections. Without adequate vibration damping many, soldered connections can become weakened or severed, connection signals can be diminished and components can be broken beyond repair.

In computer hard disk and other disk writing/reading applications, for example, the lack of proper vibration damping can result in the loss of data, the damage of the disk surface beyond repair and inefficient writing and reading performance.

Mobile phones, because of the frequency with which users drop them, need to handle extreme shock well. Sensitive components in mobile phones need to well protected by vibration damping materials to avoid permanent damage in the inevitable event of a droppage.

KITAGAWA INDUSTRIES America offers vibration damping materials and shock absorbing products suitable for particular needs and situations.

Heat resistance is improved by use of special acrylic rubber as well as dampens vibration energy by converting into thermal. LOSTOMER is a highly vibration dampening material. In addition, the improved heat resistance allows use in a broader range of areas and applications.

Fan Fixer tm Vibration Damping MaterialFan Fixer
Fan Fixer is a fixture that reduces vibrations, and noise of cooling fan. It allows for fan to be installed without screws. Resonance and fluttering noise are reduced by damping the vibrations transmitted from the cooling fan. A snap structure enables simple one-touch installation. Screws or tools are not necessary.
