Leaf Spring Eye Bearings for highest axle loads
Slit bushes with steel outer tube and step support ring, both made of high-strength steel.
One vulcanizing part but many variants:
Many variants can be displayed from one tool in order to enable a wide range of load capacities. Using different rubber compounds and hardnesses is the easiest. The material of the outer tube can be adapted to the loads. The same applies to the material of the back-up rings. By using stepped back-up rings, the load capacity can be increased by a further level.
If larger torsional or cardanic loads occur frequently, we recommend a multi-layer bush.
In the commercial vehicle, the leaf spring ends are rolled to eyes, in which the Jörn leaf spring eye bearings are used. At one end, the bushings are attached directly to the frame. On the other there is a short handlebar, which in turn is attached to the frame with an identical bushing. But even with air-sprung trucks, there is a Jörn leaf spring eye bearing in the rolled eye of the handlebars.
Jörn slit bush:maximum loads using prestress
Technology in rubber-metal for more than fifty years, Jörn has been developing maintenance-free and wear-free rubber-metal connections for suspension, noise and vibration insulation. We develop individual solutions for the construction of commercial vehicles, agricultural machinery and construction machinery, rail vehicles and special vehicles. Recently, we also supply parts for cargo bikes. Our rubber-metal elements are as unique as the corresponding end product. We then develop the final solutions for your individual areas of application in close cooperation with you. Flexibility is our guiding value, not only in terms of development but also in terms of production and order volume. We can offer annual quantities of less than 100 elements as well as large series economically. We will be happy to advise you. Enjoy the video
