Friction dampers from SUSPA® are suitable for damping impacts and vibrations. All friction dampers developed by SUSPA® are designed for the respective product application so that an optimal movement sequence or optimal vibration behavior is achieved.
Among our systems you will find the friction damper that is perfectly tailored to your needs for every requirement and use.
For applications that require constant damping.
For higher requirements for comfort and noise reduction.
With integrated distance sensor system in friction dampers.
For applications that require a suspension / damper unit.
For varied applications, such as for washing machines with a vertical axis of rotation.
What is a friction damper? How is the damper built and what forces are acting? We present the most important characteristics of the SUSPA® friction dampers to you here.
Friction dampers are damping elements that convert the kinetic energy of moving components into thermal energy, thus reducing hard stops or avoiding excessively large vibration amplitudes.
Friction dampers essentially consist of a housing, a tappet, and a friction element that acts like a connecting member. The damping or friction force is generated by the friction element due to the relative movement between the housing and tappet.
The friction or damping force can be controlled via the friction element.
Different characteristics are available for friction dampers. These range from linear force progression to soft start to spring-supported characteristic curves. In this way, we are able to create the ideal damper from our modular system for the respective application. The friction forces are temperature and speed-dependent
