b&m-VIBE®

Decoupling element for absorbing and deflecting vibrations and noise

The b&m-VIBE® is the perfect fastener to prevent the transmission of occurring vibrations to adjacent components. With the b&m-VIBE® b&m responds to the various challenges of the market, for damping vibrations and reducing noise emissions.

Excessive noise and vibration can quickly cause problems. Both factors can have a negative impact on the product. Shorter product life cycle, due to mechanical failure, faster wear or even the less efficient operation of a product are often the consequences. b&m offers a variety of standard solutions for this - with and without internal thread. In case of special requirements, b&m impresses with high flexibility and short development times for adaptations to specific customer applications. In case of the b&m-VIBE® variant with thread, a thread insert overmolded with elastomer is used. In contrast, the b&m-VIBE® can also be manufactured with only one sleeve. To create the clamping between the components, a thread must be provided in the counterpart in this case. In both variants, the elastomer is compressed by screwing in a screw, and through this a bulge is created and placed on to the component to be fastened. The result is a secure and reversible connection with damping properties.
