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.
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.
|Manufacturing Process||Injection Molding/Compression|
|Type of Polymer||Natural/Synthetic|
|Endurance/Fatigue Testing||The rubber pads are tested for their life cycle under accelerated atmospheric conditions at loads ranging from 2500 Kgs to 10000 kgs.|
