How do iglidur plain bearings reduce noise in automobiles (Buzz, Squeak and Rattle)?

Julio Pauli | 9. October 2019

BSR are all noises that are produced by components and assemblies in the motor vehicle. BSR testing, also called a noise and rattle test, is an acoustic method from the automotive industry and is used to measure the volume of these noises. A realistic situation with corresponding vibrations is simulated and the volume of the noise is then measured. The technical challenge for the vehicle and component engineers is to identify the ‘noisy’ components and replace them with a quieter solution wherever possible.

Seal for plain bearings: What are the approaches available?

Uwe Sund | 5. August 2019

Too much dirt in the bearing? Basically, many plain bearings – depending on the type – are much less sensitive to dirt than rolling bearings. But as it often happens, if it’s too much, it’s too much. At the latest when the entire bearing clearance is filled with dirt, no one is wondering about problems. […]

How to avoid Fogging in the car?

Dirk Tietz | 15. July 2019

What is fogging? Generally speaking, fogging refers to the outgassing of individual material parts that condense in the surroundings of the component. Usually, the fogging effect is associated with heated living spaces. Here, black-dust settlements occur in flats during the heating period. Typical signs of fogging are planar black coating or black dust that sticks […]
