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 ITT 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 environments
— 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
and Defense industries.

Wire rope isolators are multi-axis isolators. The diagram below includes load axis definitions and deflection considerations.
Damping: Typically 5-15%, depending on size and input level. For specific damping considerations, please consult Enidine.
The diagrams below illustrate typical mounting orientations, in some applications multiple combined configurations can be used to acheive the most optimal results.
Wire Rope Isoaltor 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.
Clamp Models (WR12 – WR40):
ITT Enidine’s clamp bar models are constructed by clamping the wire rope between two fastened mount bars.
