Basic Structure

Lapcon™ rotary dampers utilize the principle of fluid resistance to reduce the speed of moving parts. Oil is used to provide the braking force of the damper. This torque can be adjusted by changing the oil’s viscosity making it relatively easy to customize a solution to meet your needs.  Can’t find a rotary damper to fit your application?  Contact our team of experts who can assist you with a customized solution.
