In conjunction with its participation in the 2012 Farnborough Airshow, ITT Corporation is showcasing a lightweight vibration reduction technology that allows critical components such as aircraft sensors and electronics to function properly. The Enidamp™ Advanced Damping Treatment System is a patent-pending innovation that is part of ITT’s broad portfolio of vibration isolation, energy absorption and motion control products and solutions.
“Aerospace manufacturers are continually looking for new ways to improve the flying experience, and we have a legacy of innovation and experience to help them achieve their goals,” said Munish Nanda, president of ITT’s Control Technologies business. “When our customers need to provide a smoother flight for crews and passengers, our team has the capability to combine different vibration-dampening technologies – including the EnidampTM Advanced Damping Treatment System – to keep vibration levels low and aerospace systems working as intended.”
This technology can be used in airplane ducting, structure, trim panels and floors, and can be packaged to accommodate development or retrofit of existing fleets.
ITT designs and manufactures other highly engineered technologies for the aerospace industry, including valves, pumps and switches for fluid and environmental control systems and utility actuators that open and close exterior doors with improved fuel efficiency and reduced noise, as well as custom engineered components that control overhead stowage bins, allow seats to recline and return to the upright position with the touch of a button, and contribute to in-flight entertainment systems.
At Farnborough, ITT is highlighting several additional new technologies including a Mil-DTL 3899 composite connector that offers a 30 percent weight reduction to end users compared to its aluminium counterpart, a compact RAM door actuator that improves system fuel efficiency and a strut integrated isolator that combines isolation with next-level assemblies to meet both noise and structural requirements in a lower-cost, reduced-weight package.
ITT has components on major aircraft platforms, regional and business jets, helicopters, satellites and space explorations, as well as military vehicles, submarines and ships. A portion of ITT’s business is also focused on supplying aftermarket services for maintenance, repair and overhaul to meet the critical need of airlines to update equipment and keep planes running safely and efficiently.
