Radial Damping
Energy capacity 20.4 in-lbs/cycle
Stroke max. 0.87 inch

For long, soft braking action: The TUBUS TR models deliver linear damping forces. These maintenance-free, ready-to-install elements are made of co-polyester elastomer, which only heats up slightly during operation and therefore provides consistent damping.

The radial loading enables a very long and soft deceleration with progressive energy reduction at the end of the stroke. The TR product family has been specially designed for maximum stroke with a minimum height, producing energy absorption per stroke extending from 10.6 in-lbs to 1,292 in-lbs. (1.2 Nm to 146 Nm). The dampers are available in compact formats of Ø 1.14" to Ø 3.94"(Ø 29 mm to Ø 100 mm) and are supplied with a special screw for simple, quick assembly.

Application Examples

TUBUS-TR  e-Scooter
TUBUS-TR e-Scooter
TUBUS bumpers make driving an e-scooter a real experience. The footboard of an electric scooter should be dampened to enable the driver to experience a comfortable ride even over potholes and other bumpy surfaces. Ideally, the characteristic line should be furnished with a soft increase in force over a long stroke. The elegant look of the scooter as well as the folding mechanism designed to ...
TUBUS-TR End position absorption on the hydraulic drive
TUBUS-TR End position absorption on the hydraulic drive
TUBUS bumpers safeguard hydraulic cylinders. In a testing facility for vehicle tanks, the test specimens are pulled out of the water with a support arm. A hydraulic cylinder carries out the swinging movement and is attenuated in the end position by two TUBUS TR85-50. Even if this work could be taken over by other absorber solutions, the energy balance clearly speaks for the benefits of the ...
