ITT To Showcase Highly Engineered Shock Absorber Technologies At DSEI

ITT Corporation (NYSE:ITT) has developed new and updated technologies that are designed to enhance safety and solve complex challenges in the defense industry. In response to evolving safety challenges, ITT’s Motion Technologies business has completely redesigned its M113 Damper and developed the new KONI 93 Series Shock Absorber. These KONI-branded solutions will be showcased at the DSEI Defense and Security Expo in London Sept. 10-13.

“We’re no different from the rest of the world in our concern for keeping global defense forces safe day in and day out,” said Luca Savi, president of ITT’s Motion Technologies business. “Our new KONI innovations respond to increasing defense challenges while finding new ways to keep products cost-effective and modern.”

The 93 Series Shock Absorber was developed to respond to the increasing demand for protection from roadside bombs and explosively formed penetrators (EFPs). Adding supplemental armor to heavy-tracked, wheeled vehicles increases the vehicles’ weight, putting extra demands on suspension components. The 93 Series Shock Absorber is bigger and stronger, reducing the impact of increased weight on vehicle mobility. The 93 Series performed exceedingly well in product testing, upholding forces up to 100 kN at speeds of up to 12 meters per second.

Another shock solution comes in the KONI M113 Damper, completely redesigned as a more robust shock absorber able to resist harsh environments. The modern construction of the M113 uses a deflective disc-style piston to make the damping technology more consistent. The damper’s seals have been modified beyond the commercial standard to better handle the higher temperatures of many defense environments.

“These new products are the latest additions to one of the widest ranges of defense solutions for land and security as well as special forces,” said Chris de Bruin, sales manager, heavy duty and defense shock absorbers at ITT’s Motion Technologies business. “Our capability for large production volumes allows us to create and distribute these technologies across the globe.”
