A switchable central bypass channel reduces dynamic stiffness and thus improves idle vibration. While driving, the bypass channel is closed to dampen road shake for optimized driving comfort.
The main rubber spring secures radial stiffness and can be modified in material and shape to meet customer requirements. Vertical rubber stoppers can further be assembled. They do not have to be bonded, thereby offering an efficient modular solution for mass production.
Motor mounts control engine movement in all directions, ensuring excellent driving comfort and driving dynamics without compromising performance.
About Motor Mounts
Motor mounts carry the static and dynamic loads of the motor throughout its entire service life and are also an important factor for isolating low to high frequency vibrations. Downsized and turbocharged motors are state-of-the-art to reduce fuel consumption but lead to high vibration levels.
Motor and transmission mounts consist of a motor or gearbox support arm, an isolation element and a body-side connecting element. The critical element is the rubber spring that dampens vibrations, supports drive torques and isolates noise during start-up. The motor mount prevents booming noises and load-change shocks. Vibrations of the body and drive train are improved by using a hydraulic damping system. Motor mounts effectively isolate motor vibrations and dampen road excitations to ensure a comfortable driving experience.
The product portfolio ranges from conventional rubber mounts and hydro motor mounts, through electrically or pneumatically switchable motor mounts, to gearbox mounts and torque rods.
