    Shock and Vibration

    The environments in which equipment must often operate—oil, water, ozone, corrosion, and temperature extremes—are as critical to designing materials and assemblies that isolate shock and vibration as factors such as space limitations, shock loading capability, weight, radiation, and surface friction.

    As a result of its interlocking loop construction—which couples resiliency with high damping characteristics and nonlinear spring rates—Metal Textiles knitted wire mesh offers unique properties for absorbing shock and vibration. It also provides dramatically improved performance in hostile environments. Each loop acts as a small spring when subjected to compressive loads, and will immediately resume 90% of its original shape when the load is removed.

    Knitted wire mesh, in a compressed form, can handle shock loadings ashigh as the yield strength of the material itself. In fact, it is not uncommonfor a one-inch-thick disc to absorb up to 100,000 pounds of loading—a levelnot obtainable with any other fabricated material. Loadings may be in anydirection. Knitted wire mesh is also versatile: additional resilience, as well asreduction of surface friction, can be obtained by knitting plastic fiber inparallel with metal, in which case the metal wire acts as a structural supportand binder for the plastic.

    Proven performance in shock and vibration damping
    Knitted mesh has a distinct advantage in its ability to withstand hostileenvironments over other materials such as rubber, plastic, cork, and felt. Byproper selection of the material or combination of materials, it is possible to provide vibration or shock control in corrosive atmospheres or at ultrahigh orcryogenic temperatures, as well as radioactive, dirty, oily, and other extremeconditions.

    Knitted mesh also offers other environmental advantages. Since the knitcontracts within itself to take up the expansion of the metal, the coefficientof thermal expansion is not a factor—the resiliency of the knit allows forexpansion and contraction without the subsequent danger of the supportseparating from, or pinching, the equipment it protects.

    Knitted Wire Mesh-Providing Extra Protection from Shock and Vibration Damping in the World's Most Demanding Industrial Environments

    Not only does knitted wire mesh provide superior performance-with an extra measure of protection against shock and vibration-but it can be fabricated from any material that can be drawn into a wire form. The most common knitted materials are stainless steel, copper, aluminum, and Inconel.

    An assortment of fibers, plastics, and other materials can also be combined with metals to provide specific, desired damping or environmental characteristics. In addition, bulk material may be flattened, calendared, corrugated, wound, or compressed to enhance its properties for specific applications. The density of the knit may also be controlled from 10 to 70%-permitting constructions of widely varying compression characteristics.

    The versatility in selection of materials and their fabrication make knitted wire mesh an ideal solution for an extremely wide range of demanding industrial applications.


    Metal Textiles knitted wire mesh products provide a number of significant advantages over other shock and vibration damping materials:

    • Flexible support offers variations of alignment, flame resistance, expansion and contraction, and corrosion control.
    • Offers more durability with less effect from the environment.
    • Wide range of materials can be used to control not only acoustical properties, but aging processes.
    • Isolation pads can withstand more weight and maintain its resiliency without deterioration.
    • Will reduce wear and tear on critical piping or delicate tubing on aircraft, marine, or other transit equipment when used as clamps for retainers.
    • As bumper pads, can add extended life to pneumatic tube carriages, plus reduce impact noise.

    Applications for Metal Textiles knitted wire mesh include vibration and shock control for:

    • Engine mounts—cars, trucks, boats, recreationvehicles (camper trailers), electricmotors, auxiliary motors, and aircraft
    • Vibration pads—Machinery, floating slabsand pipes
    • Mounts—Electronics, tubing, hydraulics, aircraft,
      and marine
    • Bumper pads—Pneumatic tube systems,coin machines for bank, ball screws, and
      steering columns
    • Clamps—Tubing, tongs and furnace clamps (fingers)
    • Exhaust Systems—Catalytic monolith supports
      Challenge: In the early 1970s, the automotive industry needed a mechanical support for the brittle ceramic honeycomb substrate used in exhaust
