The combination of the specific properties of rubber and the known metal properties results in a very wide range of applications for construction elements made of rubber-metal compounds. We encounter them in all branches of industry as clutch buffers, friction wheels, bearing elements, spring and damping elements, bushings, valve balls, piston bodies, stators, disc springs or also as shaft bearings. In particular, machine feet and other rubber buffers, which serve to damp oscillations and vibrations, are used in mechanical and apparatus engineering as well as in measuring instrument technology and precision mechanics. The JÄGER Group offers an extensive range of different materials and hardnesses in the field of rubber-metal elements both for standardized and for components designed according to customer specifications.
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.
We supply suspension elements in the following designs:
- Silentium Drive, the quiet innovation in the combine harvester
- rubber-metal buffer and elements
- torsion bushings
- conical bearing elements
- machine feet as rubber-metal connection
- hollow springs
- rubber-metal rails
- axial and radial bushings
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.
