Commercial Vehicles Powertrain

Truck powertrains are a major source for unwanted noise and vibration. Higher emission standards, demands for ever-greater performance and comfort have also had an impact on engine mounts. However, exhaust gas treatment systems, turbochargers, higher pressure, encapsulation and additional equipment in and around the engine compartment have boosted service temperatures. New EPDM and silicone rubbers, both of which are already used in Vibracoustic engine mounts, can alleviate the situation in order to reach the ambitious goals in regard to fuel consumption and emissions.
