Applications

Server & Data Center

Developed to help enable peak server system performance, fan mount and grommet elastomers and acoustic foams from Aearo Technologies are engineered solutions that can be custom designed to reduce vibration and manage noise that can interfere with server hard drive performance.

Hard Disc Drive Performance

ISODAMPā„¢ isolation grommets and isolation carriers mount the HDD to the server chassis while isolating the HDD drive from unwanted vibration helping to enable peak system performance without sacrificing space.

Fan Mount Isolators

Our ISODAMPā„¢ and ISOLOSSā„¢ elastomer fan mounts isolate the fan assembly from the chassis to minimize unwanted energy vibrations and noise. Utilizing an easy, snap-in, toolless design reduces assembly time.

Noise and Acoustic Control

CONFOR EG foams enable improved server hard drive and system performance by managing and mitigating acoustic energy that can degrade system performance while maintaining air flow for thermal management in tight server chassis spaces.

Consumer Electronics:

Notebooks and Desktop Computers

An enjoyable user experience and long life are common expectations for todayā€™s notebook and desktop computers. Aearo Technologies high damping materials help enhance performance while protecting delicate components from drop and shock events and by reducing noise caused by vibration.

Notebook or Desktop Speaker Isolation

ISOLOSSā„¢ SL molded grommets help isolate speakers from the chassis to reduce amplification, noise, and vibration. CONFORā„¢ SC foams provide a cushion between speakers and the enclosure to reduce vibration and improve speaker acoustics.

HDD Isolation

To protect from vibration damage and improve the HDD performance, ISODAMPā„¢ elastomer isolators and snubbers can be customized to fit most all mounting configurations. In addition, we can help determine and implement a design that includes all in one elastomer solutions.

Display Protection

CONFORā„¢ SC and CONFORā„¢ TF foam or ISODAMPā„¢ elastomer isolators placed on display corners and directly behind the screen can reduce LCD flex and breakage during impact and drop/shock events.

Fan Isolation

ISODAMPā„¢ and ISOLOSSā„¢ elastomer fan mounts isolate the fan assembly from the chassis to minimize unwanted energy vibrations and noise. Utilizing an easy, snap-in, toolless design reduces assembly time.

Desktop/AIO Foot Pad

ISOLOSSā„¢ SL elastomeric pads provide a damped interface between the base and the desk reducing display monitor vibration and shaking, enabling an improved user experience.

CPU Protection

CONFORā„¢ SC isolation pads protect critical components such as the CPU by providing a damping layer between the CPU chipset and heatsink, the foam can absorb much of the shock and protect the CPU.

Consumer Electronics:

Smartphones and Tablets

Enabling slim and portable designs, Aearo Technologies thin and highly efficient shock and vibration management materials help enhance performance while protecting delicate smartphone and tablet components from drop and shock events.

Display Protection

ISOLOSSā„¢ and ISODAMPā„¢ molded elastomer parts can be placed on LCD and OLED display corners, and CONFORā„¢ SC and CONFORā„¢ TF placed directly behind the screen to help reduce flex and breakage during impact and drop/shock events.

Camera Module Protection

CONFORā„¢ TF foam or a molded ISODAMPā„¢ elastomer gasket will help protect the camera module and camera lens from drop shock and improve image stabilization.

PCB Protection

CONFORā„¢ SC foam or ISOLOSSā„¢ elastomer isolators work to help prevent PCB flex and pop-off during impact and drop shock. We can help develop custom-molded and die-cut parts for varying IC profiles.

Battery Cover Reinforcement

ISODAMPā„¢ molded elastomer isolators help stiffen the battery cover to provide additional support where needed. CONFORā„¢ SC and CONFORā„¢ TF foams can fill tight spaces to help reduce battery cover vibration caused by noisy speakers.

Automotive Electronics:

LIDAR/Radar, Info-Displays, HUD, and More

Our shock and vibration materials help protect automotive display systems by providing high damping and soft cushioning in the spaces and gaskets under the screen. Foam materials have low and flat compression force deflection (CFD) curves, which provide energy absorption and consistent pushback, while viscoelastic damping materials dissipate unwanted noise energy from shock and vibration.

Info and Navigation Display Protection

CONFORā„¢ SC foams deliver low shock transmissibility and can be used as a shock pad and gasket for the protection of LCD and LED screens. This polyurethane foam can be used in any display requiring protection, including infotainment systems, heads-up displays (HUD), and digital dashboards.

Sensor Isolation and Reliability

ISOLOSSā„¢ SL is a molded elastomer that can be used as a component isolator in LIDAR, radar, or other sensor assemblies. The high damping characteristics of ISOLOSSā„¢ LS reduce vibrations that can cause sensor errors and reduce system performance.

HUD Optimization

Motor noise in automotive HUDs can degrade system performance. ISOLOSSā„¢ SL elastomers are proven materials that dampen noise and vibrations and help enhance the overall user experience.

Wearables:

Smartwatches, Fitness Trackers, AR/VR Headsets, and Audio Headphones

CONFORā„¢, ISODAMPā„¢, and ISOLOSSā„¢ damping and cushioning materials can be intelligently integrated into wearable product designs, helping to contribute both user comfort and long-term performance and durability.
