Suspension elements manufactured as moulded articles with a firmly adhering connection of rubber and metal are used as components for vibration insulation, shock absorption and noise damping. While the actual spring body is made of rubber, the metal is used for stabilization and fastening.
Compared to insulators made of other materials, mounting elements made of rubber-metal offer the advantage of damping, damping and springing. They are maintenance-free as well as easy and quick to install. In addition to an extensive range of standardized bearing elements which are kept in stock, we are your competent partner for the development of special parts.
Predominantly natural rubber (NR) is used for this purpose.
For special requirements, however, the use of alternative materials is possible and sensible.
For applications in the upper temperature range, for example, silicone is a suitable material.
In roll coating, metal cores are coated with a rubber layer, thus enabling a combination of both material properties. During production, the unvulcanised rubber is either wound onto the metal core or applied in a compression or injection mould to vulcanise it afterwards. The range is supplemented by roll cover hoses, which are already vulcanized and then wound under pretension onto the metal core.
We also offer covers made of already vulcanized rubber sheets, which are glued to the metal core with special adhesive. In many cases, roller covers are exposed to several stresses at the same time. This is why special experience is required to determine the cover quality, the design of the core and the surface quality. We have decades of experience in this field.
