  • Vibracoustic technology for a comfortable SUV driving experience

    15.03.2019Darmstadt, 15 March 2019 | Today every fourth newly registered car is either an off-road vehicle or SUV. In terms of buyer’s favor, the SUV segment has in effect overtaken even the hitherto most successful segment of compact cars. Consequently, car manufacturers are constantly presenting new SUV models in all sizes, also at this year's Geneva International Motor Show. This is despite the fact that very few buyers actually plan to take their vehicle off road. What does attract buyers to SUVs is rather the elevated seating position, and the better overview it gives them in city traffic. This is why car designers are refining the new models to make them suitable for everyday use and enhance driving comfort. A key factor in this effort is the deep expertise of Vibracoustic, a leading supplier of vibration control solutions. Today the products made by the German-based company already ensure driving comfort and safety in every second SUV manufactured in Europe and thus turn rough workhorses into elegant and smooth vehicles for everyday use.

  • Overrunning damper isolator pulley reduces consumption and emissions by up to one percent

    25.10.2017Darmstadt, October 25, 2017. The efficient integration of auxiliaries in the belt drive is just as important as internal engine measures for the reduction of CO2 and consumption levels. Low belt tension can lead to significant improvements in efficiency here. However, this also involves the risk of belt sagging, which needs to be prevented at all cost. Vibracoustic has now developed a solution for this: the overrunning damper isolator pulley prevents sagging and flapping of the belt and thus ensures consistent belt tension in every driving situation.
