Seat technology

The Motion Master suspension system from Lord provides integrated magnetorheological (MR) technology in the form of a damper filled with fluid that changes viscosity when exposed to a magnetic field. Based on real-time data, such as operator body mass and changing levels of shock and load vibration, the system adjusts the strength of the magnetic field that is applied to induce the appropriate level of viscosity in the fluid, thus providing variable compensation ranging from soft to stiff, depending on conditions. Lord’s MR-based seat technology is part of Sears Seating’s semi-active suspension, which is available in seats for agricultural, mining, and construction equipment.
