Farrat Anti-Vibration Materials used to enhance high-speed Hyperloop pod

Our Industrial Team recently supplied undergraduate engineers from Colorado School of Mines, with high-performance Anti-Vibration Materials to dampen vibrations affecting their prototype for the 2019 SpaceX Hyperloop IV Competition.

The competition intends to revolutionize the worlds transportation systems, challenging student teams to design and build a high-speed pod that can be propelled through a low-pressure tube at theoretical speeds of up to 760mph!

Farrat Anti-Vibration Materials will help to stabalise the prototype pod wheels when travelling at high speeds, damping vibrations ranging from 0 to 30 Hz.

We do not want to give too many details of the vibration damping system away ahead of the competition entry submission, so in the meantime, take a look at the competition trailer below or  learn more about Farrat Anti-Vibration Materials for Industrial Applications here.


Designing a resilient support or connection and selecting the correct vibration isolating or damping material for it can be complex, but Farrat’s Industrial Team are here to help. We can guide you in your selection, so that you are confident that the material supplied is the optimum solution.

Please contact us with your specific requirements and we will work with you to develop a solution that considers: performance, longevity, environmental conditions, installation and budget.

Farrat Supply Isolation Materials for 11x Stolle Bodymakers and Minster Cupper in Poland

Farrat Isolation Materials supplied for 11x Stolle Bodymaker Isolated Foundations

Farrat recently supplied independent Can Manufacturer, Bagpak Polskawith anti-vibration materials to isolate the foundations of 11x Stolle Bodymakers and a Minster Cupper Press at their large metal packaging production site in Poland. Bagpak approached Farrat to assist with the installation of their new high-speed can making line because of our experience and reputation within the Canning Industry; having developed several Isolated Foundation systems for Stolle Bodymakers and Cupper Presses in the past. Farrat have over 25 years experience designing and supplying multiple production lines globally, using our high quality, UK manufactured materials for projects across Europe, China, Middle East and India. Typical materials used to isolate Cupping Presses or Bodymakers are;
