We Provide Shock and Vibration Solutions for 810G and 901E Grade Equipment

Minimizing the amount of vibration your equipment experiences is critical to its long-term performance. Vibration fatigue can cause premature equipment failure and expensive downtime. But finding a way to reliably and cost-effectively counteract it has always been a challenge.
Enter Enidine Wire Rope Isolators. Engineered with a rugged, all-metal design comprised of stainless steel cable and aluminum retaining bars, our wire rope isolators provide unsurpassed multi-axis vibration isolation. They require almost no maintenance. They’re environmentally stable and — since our customers depend on us to help their equipment perform in even the harshest environmentsRoHS compliant wire rope vibration isolation systems from ITT Enidine Defense — they’re highly resistant to extreme temperatures, oil, ozone, abrasives and chemicals.
Our wire rope isolators also come complete with a patented crimping pattern. Along with our array of versatile mounting options and sizes, this design makes our products ideal for a broad range of applications in the Industrial Deck plate isolation system image: deck plate vibration isolation systems from ITT Enidine Defenseand Defense industries.

Our deck plate isolation system protects valuable contents from damage when travelling over the road or in other transportation type applications. Various sizes and weights of goods contained in shipping containers vary greatly and the ability to protect these goods is critical. 


All of our wire rope isolators are capable of meeting the following industry standards:

DEF-STND 0755, MIL-STD-810, BV43-44, MIL-STD-167, STANAG-042, MIL-S-901, MIL-E-5400

The best part? Even if your application parameters fall outside our standard product line, ITT Enidine has the engineering capabilities to design, test and recommend a custom solution to suit your specific needs.

Damping: Typically 5-15%, depending on size and input level. For specific damping considerations, please consult Enidine.


Mounting Orientation:

The diagrams below illustrate typical mounting orientations, in some applications multiple combined configurations can be used to acheive the most optimal results.Mounting orientation diagram: mounting orientations for ITT Enidine Defense wire rope isolators

Wire Rope Isolator Types:


Crimp Models (WR2 – WR8):

ITT Enidine’s crimp design lowers cost by using fewer mount bars when compared to the clamp design, no assembly hardware, and reduced assembly time. Crimp Models (WR2 – WR8) image: ITT Enidine Defense wire rope isolators - Crimp Models (WR2 – WR8)

Clamp Models (WR12 – WR40):

ITT Enidine’s clamp bar models are constructed by clamping the wire rope between two fastened mount bars.
