Ships such as lifeboats, patrol boats and tugs have to perform 100 percent under the most extreme conditions. These so-called "special sea conditions" require a propulsion system that can withstand all adversities.
Rubber Design is a leading specialist when it comes to offering a range of vibration damping solutions for marine propulsion systems. Rubber design products are the right choice, especially when high reliability and high performance are required, at top speed and in heavy weather without compromising the comfort of the passengers or the crew.
Solutions that work under all conditions
As a rubber design distributor, we design, produce, test and deliver tailor-made solutions. We accompany the construction process at a very early stage of the development of the ship, which enables us to develop solutions that work under all conditions that our customer can imagine.
The range of drive equipment consists of TT (Thrust Torque) elements, gearbox bearings, flexible couplings and thrust bearings. Rubber Design can perform a full dynamic analysis of a ship's propulsion system to select the right coupling and engine mount for each application. CAD drawings (2D / 3D) of the bearings and couplings are available in different types and can easily be imported into the CAD drawing of the complete propeller shaft installation. All thrust bearings and couplings can be supplied with the required classification approval.
