Plain bearings

Rattle-free interior

Dirk Tietz | 27. March 2020

Electrically or alternatively powered vehicles are very quiet and cause hardly any disturbing engine noise. Increasing insulation of the interior, which a few years ago was only found in the premium segment, is now finding its way into almost every vehicle class. This increased quality awareness demands a lot from designers and engineers when designing […]

Lars Butenschön | 19. March 2020

Only one short work step left … and then it happens. The device refuses to work. The knee lever seizes, and the machine performs an emergency stop. The user has just one concern: “How long does the service technician need?” “Why can’t this piece of junk keep it together until I’m done with this urgent […]

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

Julio Pauli | 2. 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.
