Rubber-to-metal components in the chassis

For stability and safe steering

How does the vehicle respond in the event of road unevenness, braking and evasive maneuvers? The elastic connection of premium rubber-to-metal components between the individual chassis components has a decisive impact upon this. LEMFÖRDER rubber bearings for the chassis ensure sound absorption, ideal steering behavior and driving stability, even in critical situations. The product range consists of suspension strut mounts and axle bearings. In terms of the axle bearings, a distinction is made between link mounts, axle beam mounts, subframe bearings and stabilizer mounts. In addition to the ball joint, the rubber-bonded metal mount is the most important type of joint in the wheel guidance of the chassis. It forms the elastic connection of individual chassis components, such as between the control arm and the vehicle body or the axle carrier. Through the specific dimensioning and shaping of these parts, it is possible to influence the tuning of the chassis.

Rubber-to-metal components have a decisive influence on driving characteristics and driving safety. The vulcanized connection between the metal and rubber transfers pressure and shear forces and simultaneously insulates oscillations, vibrations and structure-borne noise. They are used where mobile and damping connections are required at the same time: Up to 15 different rubber-to-metal components are installed in a passenger car.

The LEMFÖRDER composite parts are therefore designed in an innovative manner and are geared towards a particularly long service life.

Conventional bearings are intelligently designed rubber-metal or rubber-plastic constructions that provide mechanical damping.

Hydraulic bearings or hydro bearings additionally work with an oil damping. Within the rubber element, the liquid ensures a resistance to flow that softens jolts and vibrations. Hydraulic bearings are used wherever an elastic mounting with frequency-dependent damping is desired.

Hydraulic bearings may be:

  • Link mounts
  • Axle beam mounts and subframe bearings
  • In the driveline: engine mounts
