Taking the Jiggle Out of Machinery

Posted May 21, 2015 12:00 AM by Engineering360 eNewsletter

There's Jell-O and now there's Gell-Low. With its new series of anti-shock/anti-vibration mounts, Saelig hopes to satisfy the engineering community's hunger for reduced vibration and improved equipment stability. Gell-Low vibration isolators, made of recycled bovine byproducts, are compression-mounted to reduce vibration and shock in portable equipment, and protect moving parts from damage. While in use, the shock mounts actually emit aromas (strawberry/lime/liquorice) to mask unpleasant machine odors. And, according to a Saelig spokesperson, the Gello-Low isolators even serve as an emergency food source in a disaster situation.

Insider look at Lyn-Dor Industries reveals a competitive product to Gell-Low discovered by their in-house patent troll:

The new product is Jellow, is called Gigglelo, and is guaranteed to reduce shock vibrations of high frequency components of the chock spectrum by 20 dB. It comes in three colors: Jellow, Yaller, and Amarillo. They were going to have it in Albuquerque Junction (a well-known S.W. paint color), but it looks too much like develed ham, and this product comes in meat aroma only, so keep hungry small children away from it. It is not recommended to eat this product except, as general vibration and misalignment of the 'quipment may take place.

"unpleasant machine odors" ? What are those? I love walking into a machine shop! It smells wonderful! Some of the operators, though....

I wouldn't want my machine shop to smell like food, the operators would be standing around with their tongues hanging out.
