Damping and vibration control technology
The damping of mechanical vibrations (e.g. vibrations, shocks or shocks) is achieved by using a vibration damper. The aim is to convert the existing kinetic energy into thermal energy.
In mechanical engineering, shock absorbers are used as hydraulic machine elements to brake moving masses at the lowest machine load. Depending on the requirements, the appropriate damping element design is used to convert kinetic energy into heat.
