Torsional Vibration Absorber

Anti Vibration Components for the Drive Train

A motor vehicle's drive shaft represents a vibrational system. Especially in the case of front-mounted engines and rear-wheel drive, the engine's torsional variability results in vibration in the drive shaft that detracts from comfort in the form of a rattling or humming noise.

The use of torsional vibration absorbers is one way to improve vibrational behavior. These can be integrated into already existing drive trains without any major structural expense. Normally, such absorbers are installed at the transmission outlet.
