Bushes and Ball Joints

Ball joints

A good bush design requires the necessary combination of profile and compound along with the application of good design principles and well-proven expertise. Dellner Polymer Solutions knows that the success of any system incorporating rubber bushes is dependent on the capability of the bush, which has to meet specific articulation and stiffness characteristics.

We make bushes in the approximate range of 30 – 400mm in various materials (polymer plastics, PTFE, metal, natural and synthetic rubber, silicone, composites) to suit any application. The outer and inner metals are usually made from premium grade steel and the compound is normally a combination of a natural rubber element bespoke to Dellner Polymer Solutions. 

Interleaves may be incorporated into a design where the radial stiffness needs to be increased.  Other characteristics can be achieved with a variety of design techniques, such as the use of internal bearing and limiting snubber features. If you have a specific requirement for a bush we would be very pleased to discuss this.

In addition to link bushes we manufacture centre pivot bushes, anti-roll bar support bearings, radial arm bushes, brake bushes, damper bearings and wind turbine power module support bearings.
