Spring insulating suspension bearing

Spring insulating suspension bearing
The spring insulating suspension bearing improves robustness, reduces noise and vibration, and contributes to improved driving comfort.The integration of this spring insulator into the bearing also reduces the number of components, providing easier assembly and reduced total cost.

Suspension systems serve a dual purposes. As well as contributing to the car’s han-dling and braking for good active safety and driving pleasure, this system also keeps vehicle occupants comfortable and reasonably well-isolated from road noise, bumps, and vibration.

The SKF spring insulating suspension bearing is a new solution which combines all the Robust MSBU features, to the spring insulator inte-gration.
