RUBBER TO METAL BONDED PADS

Description

The bump stops or rubber pads are buffer elements used in the under frame of railway bogies & automotive axels. They are fitted between the axel and chassis. The main function of these rubber pads is to accentuate the load bearing capacity of the axel frame.

TYPICAL CONSTRUCTION:

The typical construction consists of 2 or more metal elements interleafed with rubber bonded between them.

The bump stops consist of one metal part with rubber bonded over it.

  • Bump stops are used in heavy trailers, trucks & as contact suppressors between the door panels and under frames of automotive systems.
  • The rubber pads are heavy loading load bearing components used as linkages between the axel & the frame.
