Under an agreement with Lord Corporation, the world’s largest developer of magnetorheological fluid, General Kinetics can now offer our customers MR-fluid based semi-active damping systems. MR fluid changes state from liquid to a semi-solid (and back) in microseconds under a low-power magnetic field, making it an ideal working fluid for semi-active dampers.
A low number of moving parts provides mechanical simplicity consistent with superior reliability. Many years of concentrated development efforts have resulted in systems with sub-10 millisecond response times, and in conjunction with proven General Kinetics military damping hardware, provides a system with superior durability across the range of extreme conditions experienced by modern military vehicles.
Both leaders in their respective fields, General Kinetics and Lord Corporation make an ideal combination to offer the military advanced suspension technology.
