Vulcanized or Pressed Bushing for Axles

Component Name: APSOvib® Vulcanized or Pressed Bushing for Axles
Intended use: Rubber metal bushings are suitable as torsion springs or supports, requiring no maintenance, for wheels and suspension. They are available in two different finishes, vulcanized or pressed.
Key applications are in the fields of agriculture machines and special vehicles, for suspension, axles, torsion bars and shocks absorbers.
Features: Vulcanized bushings: The elastomer is vulcanized on the external and internal sleeves. The bush, in a radial direction, is softer compared to the execution with an element in pressed rubber.
Vulcanization prevents movements between the outer and the inner sleeves, due to creeping of the rubber.
Such a bush has the advantage that it can also be used alone as a torsion spring. Pressed bushings: A pre-made rubber ring is pressed strongly between two concentric steel sleeves and absorbs elastically both force and acting torque, through friction.
The bush, therefore becomes subjected to considerable compression on the main load surface, in a radial direction, and reacts extremely rigidly in this direction.
Support material: Steel S235JR or according to customer specifications, phosphated and oiled.
Damping material: NR Natural rubber of special compounds according to customer specifications.
Stiffness: According to standard product ranges or fully adaptable to customer needs.
Certification: Our production is certified according to ISO TS 16949 Complies with 2002/95/EG (RoHS).
