The squeeze film damper bearings have been successfully applied for important rotating machinery such as aero engine, high pressure centrifugal compressors and steam turbine. This paper proposes the expansion of application of the damper bearing for small and medium sized rotating machinery. The new damper has a compact size that enable standard design combined with rolling element bearing. A new design of the damper is presented. The new design consists of thin ring and special patterned wire cut grooves. The design analysis and experimental study are presented. The dynamic tests were carried out for this model damper, one is no side seal and the other is with side seals in both ends. Test results showed the sufficient damping effect for actual applications.
