ERJ staff report (RD)
Weinheim, Germany - Vibration control company Vibracoustic, part of the Freudenberg Group, has developed a new â€œultra-flexible airspringâ€ for the the Audi V8, a 5 Feb company statement said.
The new airspring features a â€œuniquely thin-walled and and especially flexible bellow,â€ to withstand demanding kinematic loads at the axle caused by deflected and steering , Vibracoustic said.
Vibracoustic engineer Jan MÃ¼ller explained that supporting fibres are installed only in the axial direction. â€œThis technology requires a highly precise production process, which results to a robust airspring with a very comfortable roll characteristic,â€ MÃ¼ller said.
Vibracoustic had around 5000 employees and a turnover of Euro 840 million in 2008.
