A video demonstrating how motion can be controlled with the use of a damping grease. A damping grease is an engineering design tool for free motion control and noise reduction. A damping grease can also be a cost effective way to achieve a “quality” feel when customer operated controls are used and enable fine tuning by hand in most mechanical and electromechanical devices.

This video was reproduced with kind permission of Dr. Lindsay Wilson of IJ Instruments Ltd who carried out this test as part of a customer project, hence the decision to test a general mineral based, lithium thickened grease and a 3in1 oil.
