Vibration Suppression and Control

Vibration Suppression and Control Systems are employed to sense and suppress vibratory forces in structures and payloads.  Passive Systems use dampers and absorbers which are mechanically tuned to a fixed frequency.  Active Systems measure vibration at key locations on the platform and dynamically apply a spectrum of cancellation forces in an equal and opposite direction.

When unwanted vibration compromises your product or system unacceptably downgrading performance, reducing lifetime, or causing failures, Moog can help implement a solution. Our established product families were developed after decades of experience with custom devices and systems. If you have specialized needs that cannot be met exactly by Moog's existing products or other available technology, we engineer custom versions and tailor new products to meet your application-specific requirements.

Product Listing

Active Vibration Control Systems

Vibration Control Actuators

Our active vibration control solutions are in use on a wide number of military and civil aircraft include the Vibration Suppression Actuation System (VSAS).  The systems have been demonstrated to significantly reduce rotor induced vibration thereby allowing aircraft manufacturers to eliminate heavy passive suppression systems.  

Hexapods

Hexapods

Hexapods are six degree of freedom positioning systems that offer high load carrying capacity, controllable stiffness, and built-in redundancy.  We offer hexapods for vibration isolation, pointing and motion simulation.

SA Series Actuators

SA Series Actuators

SA Series actuators produce vibration in a controlled, precise manner. Their primary uses are in active vibration cancellation, active damping and dynamic testing.

Tuned Dampers and Absorbers

Tuned Mass Dampers and Absorbers

Used as solutions to vibration problems, our tuned dampers and absorbers are inherently compact, modular devices that can have a simple interface to the base structure, allowing easy retrofit.

Vibration Isolators

Vibration Isolators

When electronics and other components must operate in harsh environments, or precise payloads require extremely low jitter, we provide vibration and shock isolation.

Custom Products

Moog CSA's biggest strength is in our engineering capabilities, including deep knowledge in core areas of vibration suppression, precision motion and noise control, and engineering that cuts across and combines multiple disciplines. Our customers often have specialized needs that cannot be met exactly by our existing products or any other established technology. We offer custom products in multiple areas.
