Slideshow: Vibration Isolators

An aerospace shop shows further examples of complex machined parts used to mitigate vibration.

In this article, aerospace manufacturer Next Intent discussed the challenge of machining vibration isolators, parts used to protect sensitive equipment during a rocket launch. As the article describes, part of the challenge in machining these parts is charging the right price for such complex work. Here from Next Intent are additional photos of vibration isolators the shop has successfully machined.
