The bush joint combines the
characteristics of the ball joint with those of the slit bushing.
The bush joint combines the properties of the ball joint with those of the slit bushing. Sometimes, however, the bush joint is also referred to as a ball joint. The inner part is spherical and allows greater gimbal movement compared to the slit bushing. The outer tube has a slot that continues wedge-shaped in the rubber body. During installation, the bush joint is strongly prestressed radially.
The bush joint can also be realized with an outer tube concave on the inside. Then the outer tube usually has to be designed in two parts, so that one can rather speak of a combination of dual bushing and ball joint. The outer parts then form an almost concentric rubber layer with the curved inner part.
less weight, same performance, better price...
In today’s video, Mr. Reinke presents a real novelty. The lightweight ball joint, patent pending. With the help of a new technology, ball joints, such as those installed in the chassis of trucks and tractors, have been made more than a third lighter. All this without any restrictions in performance in terms of load capacity and rigidity and at the same price level as conventional ball joints.
