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.
