Dampers and Shock Absorbers for Space Applications

Taylor Devices has a long history of working with NASA beginning in the 1960s on the Apollo program, where engineers developed shock absorbers for ground equipment on the launch platform.  From there, we have been successful in developing many other types of actuators and shock absorbers for spaceflight, including the use of metal bellows on spacecraft, vibration isolation systems on launch platforms, dampers for spaceflight, and more. We are committed to designing and building shock absorbers that can be used for future moon landings, spaceflight applications, and other ground support equipment. Contact us today to learn more about the benefits of choosing shock absorbers and dampers for space from Taylor Devices.
