They offer the ideal solution where a designer needs to carry load and allow for rotational, conical and linear movements. Unlike conventional bearings, they offer a friction free system with none of the stick or slip issues found in other systems.
As there are no moving parts our bushes are maintenance free as well as providing isolation of vibration and noise. This makes them ideal for swinging arm or wishbone designs on vehicle suspension moving elements in special purpose machines. They also make great pivot points for all sorts of applications.
Flexible bushes offer vibration isolation. They also provide an effective break in the path of structural borne noise and also at reacting extreme loads. Commonly used as torque reaction links on large power trains, rail vehicle traction motor and petrol or diesel engines. More recently because of their high duty they are also found in gearbox mountings for wind turbines and other new projects.
