Helical Isolators for Medical Equipment Design

Helical Isolators for Medical Equipment Design

Helical isolators protect a broad range of loads:

  • Very fragile (electronic equipment, computer hardware, optical devices).
  • Highly substantial (heavy engines, machinery––during transit or while in operation, even in a moving vehicle).

See table below for more details.

  • Iridited aluminum bars are standard; however, other materials and finishes can be used.
  • Variations in cable configuration are available if the standard is not suitable.

From basic transportation to aerospace, there is an application for Helical Isolators from America’s Oldest Springmaker.
