NVH Powertrain and Commercial Vehicles
Our engine and transmission mounts prevent road noise and vibration from entering the passenger compartment via the drivetrain, thus improving acoustic performance and driving comfort. Switchable or active engine mounts assist in fuel savings, particularily when implemented with a downsized engine, cylinder cutoff or start-stop function. At the same time, due to the increasing use of lightweight materials, vehicle weight and in turn fuel consumption are reduced.
Our product portfolio also includes Fiber-reinforced rubber-elastic coupling for a wide range of applications. In ships, railways, combined heat and power plants, engine / transmission connections and wind turbines, these highly effective elastomeric components play a key role in decoupling drives from impact loads, vibration and resonance.
