Engine mounts

A greater degree of ride comfort is achieved by effectively separating the engine noise and vibration from the chassis and driver´s cab. We develop efficient mounting concepts for engines, for example by using Schwingmetall® conical mounts and V series and K series hydromounts. Their special features are their selective damping and good spring properties.

Technical specifications

  • Resilient engine mounts reduce the transmission of engine vibration to the chassis and cab.
  • In addition to vibration reduction, hydromounts offer excellent damping characteristics over a broad frequency range.

Lightweight vehicle components now also available for Off-Highway applications

ContiTech has developed a prototype bracket for a tractor engine mount. It is 40 percent lighter than the original steel component.

  • Glass-fiber-reinforced polyamide as a lightweight alternative to heavy steel components
  • Studies show potential for use in commercial vehicles and machines
  • Possible weight reductions of up to 60 percent, even with large components
