Absorbing powertrain vibrations
as effectively as possible
Modern combustion engines should always consume less fuel. This goal can be achieved with smaller, higher-charged engines. However, many of these efficiency drives lead to high vibration levels. To ensure maximum comfort for the driver, vibrations must be isolated and road excitations damped as effectively as possible. Powertrain mounts developed and manufactured by Vibracoustic are used with engines or gearboxes in order to achieve this.
Powertrain mounts consist of an engine or gearbox support arm, an isolation element, and a body-side connecting element. The spring that dampens vibrations and supports the drive torques and isolates noise during start-up is most important. While driving, it prevents booming noises and load change shocks. Vibrations of the body and drive are improved by a hydraulic damping system.
With its globally unique portfolio of engine and transmission mounts, Vibracoustic offers the right solution for meeting every requirement. These range from conventional rubber mounts and hydraulic engine mounts to switchable engine mounts. With our powertrain mounts we drive comfort by ensuring that undesired vibrations and shocks in the powertrain do not reach the driver.
