New adaptive vibration control technology serves as an intermediate
solution in rotorcraft industry between active and passive systems

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–lt;a href=”” target=”_blank”gt;$ITTlt;/agt;–ITT
. (NYSE: ITT) and its Enidine
brand will showcase its new adaptive vibration control technology
solutions at AHS
Forum 75
, May 13-16, in Philadelphia. The company will demonstrate
its comprehensive technologies in Booth #217.

“With extensive expertise in vibration control technology, ITT Enidine
product lines are continually expanding to provide our customers with
unique solutions for applications on military and commercial rotorcraft
programs,” said Farrokh Batliwala, president of ITT’s Connect and
Control Technologies business. “We have leveraged our core competencies
in vibration control systems to bring a new intermediate, right-sized
adaptive control technology to market. We are excited to enter this
field and provide an alternative solution for select control systems
requiring less complexities compared to more costly active systems
commonly found in rotorcraft platforms.”

ITT Enidine designs, tests and manufactures a comprehensive selection of
motion control, energy absorption and vibration isolation products that
meet a wide range of rotorcraft applications that improve the safety and
in-flight experience for passengers and crew.

“Our entry into the adaptive vibration control technology field provides
rotorcraft customers with a cost-effective solution to the current
active systems in the global marketplace,” said Mark Ott, Principle
Engineer, ITT Enidine. “We have been working to develop this new patent
pending technology for several years, tapping into our expertise in
proven legacy technologies within our line of actuators. By joining
forces and collaborating across business units within ITT, we have
leveraged our different levels of expertise in vibration control
technology and mechanical systems to develop and demonstrate this new
intermediate solution for rotorcraft OEMs.”

At AHS Forum 75, ITT Enidine will also showcase a patent pending
adaptive Frahm demonstrator, that will provide an interactive experience
of noise and vibration that affect rotorcraft. The company will
highlight its latest technologies, including:

  • Enidine’s
    Frahm dampers
    : dynamically tuned vibration absorbers used on
    rotorcraft airframes and rotors to reduce vibration and increase
    comfort for pilots and passengers. The highly engineered Frahm dampers
    are precisely tuned to resonate at the same frequency as the
    rotorcraft components, absorbing and counteracting undesirable
    vibration throughout the aircraft.

ITT representatives will be available for meetings in Booth #217
throughout the show. Ott will speak about the adaptive Frahm technology,
“Adaptive Frahm for Variable-Speed Rotor Helicopters,” on Thursday, May
16 at 8:00 a.m. For more information, please visit:
