NVH Solutions from a Trusted, Reliable Partner
Commercial Vehicle Products
We partner with virtually all major commercial vehicle manufacturers in identifying and solving current and future Noise, Vibration and Harshness (NVH) challenges. These often derive from trends like higher emissions standards, demands for higher efficiency, e-mobility or autonomous driving.more
The driving comfort of commercial vehicles is an important factor and has an important impact on the well-being of the driver. It ensures a safe and reliable trip, as truck drivers sit up to ten times longer behind the steering wheel than light vehicle drivers. Our NVH solutions for trucks, tractors, trailers, busses and coaches reduce noise, vibrations and harshness – resulting in reliable, safe and comfortable operations.
Cost-efficiency, fulfilling higher emissions standards and demands for higher efficiency have led to new NVH challenges for commercial vehicle manufacturers.
Motor mounts carry the static and dynamic loads of the motor and are an important factor for vibration isolation from low to high frequencies. They provide high operational stability and excellent NVH performance by addressing the high power and weight of truck engines. Furthermore, new NVH challenges arise with the electrification of the drive train.
Our chassis solutions play a decisive part for the stability and comfort of commercial vehicles. Reliable, cost-efficient and safe operations are key for transport companies, and in addition, truck drivers demand a high level of comfort as the truck cabin is their workplace.
Our portfolio for commercial vehicles includes motor mounts, cabin mounts, chassis mounts and commercial vehicle air springs.
Commercial vehicle air springs from Vibracoustic CV Air Springs offer an excellent combination of reliability, safety, and comfort for trucks, tractors, trailers and buses. By adding or releasing air, the same level of driving comfort can be provided and a constant height can be maintained for all load situations.
Keeping the vehicle and trailer at a constant height level maintains vehicle stability and provides safe driving characteristics. Furthermore, it improves vibration damping in all load conditions. This reduces axle, transmission and tire wear and increases vehicle durability and efficiency. In addition, the truck suspension cannot bottom out thanks to the air springs and the chassis and the transported goods are strongly protected from damage.
The driver as well benefits from improved vibration damping, which provides high driving comfort and reduces driver fatigue for a relaxed and secure haulage.

Commercial vehicle cabins can vary strongly in weight and therefore have various requirements on cabin mounts. They need to dampen disruptive noise and vibrations, offer tilting functions to ensure optimal working conditions and provide driving comfort for truck drivers.
The product portfolio ranges from conventional cabin mounts, additional tilting and decoupling functions to comfort bearings and cabin top mounts.
Cabin Mounts with Decoupled Stiffness Rate and Tilting Function
Offer all the functions of a normal cabin mount without the need for additional spring elements
Cabin Mounts with Tilting Function
Enable high torsional deflection without damaging the rubber components
Offer low radial and axial stiffness and minimum installation space
Products to reduce Noise, Vibration and Harshness in commercial vehicle chassis applications need to be effective, durable and reliable as they operate under high loads and stresses. Chassis mounts for trucks, busses, tractors and trailers control vibrations and absorb shocks transmitted from the road surface into the chassis of the vehicle.
Chassis mounts from Vibracoustic are important components to protect the axle, leaf springs and frame of commercial vehicles and improve handling, driving stability, safety and comfort. The product portfolio includes bolster springs, axle bump stops, leaf spring bushings, reaction rod bushes and stabilizer bar links.

Support driving stability and comfort
The transport industry is constantly striving for higher efficiency. Higher emission standards, demands for greater performance and high expectations for comfort further impact the requirements for motor mounts.
Exhaust gas treatment systems, turbochargers, higher pressure, encapsulation and additional equipment in and around the motor compartment boost service temperatures. Commercial vehicle motor mounts need to withstand those higher temperatures and at the same time isolate motor, drive train and road induced vibrations. Vibracoustic commercial vehicle motor mounts optimize NVH performance and improve the stability of the vehicle by reducing vibrations and motor movement.
Vibracoustic motor mounts work like a spring to dampen motor and road vibrations as well as road impacts. They are weight and cost-optimized as well as durable, reliable solutions that offer excellent NVH performance. The product portfolio includes front motor mounts, transmission mounts as well as motor mounts for electric trucks.
