Rubber Bushes & Suspension Bushes
Rubber bushes, also known as suspension bushes, are a type of anti-vibration mount that helps isolate two parts and dampen the energy transmitted between them. DLR Elastomer design and manufacture a semi-bonded, fully bonded, or un-bonded, depending on the application’s specific needs.
Our in-house technical support team and comprehensive testing facilities can help you select the appropriate bush for your specific application. If you need help with your next project, don’t hesitate to get in touch with us.
What Are Rubber Bushes?
A rubber bush is a vibration isolator that creates a buffer between two parts. Its primary function is to absorb some of the energy generated by the movement or interaction of those parts while allowing a limited amount of movement. The rubber bush for the suspension can be pressed into a housing, which will provide compliance between the inner and outer metals in the radial, axial, torsional and conical directions. This can help to minimise vibration and even reduce noise. In essence, a rubber bushing serves as an interface between two components, helping to isolate them from each other and reduce the effects of their interaction. With no moving parts, they are also maintenance-free.
Industry Uses For Bonded Bushes
DLR Elastomer has been helping our industry partners to design and manufacture bonded bushes for many uses within the aerospace, automotive, rail, naval and military sectors. Uses include:
- Vibration dampening
- Automotive suspensions
- Engine mounts
Bonded bushes can be used for many purposes where vibration and movement can cause wear and tear on machinery.
