Effectiveness, safety, customization, profitability – the diverse and complex requirements in drive and damping technology are constantly increasing and changing. How do development engineers approach them? What specific solutions do they create for different industrial and technological sectors? How are pioneering innovations successfully achieved that provide real added value? We discuss this and much more in our The Engineer's Blog.

From the Invention to Earthquake Protection – the History of the RINGFEDER® Friction Spring

The history of the RINGFEDER® friction spring goes way back: from the first patent application, use in train bumpers, truck trailer couplings, and landing gears systems of airplanes up to advanced earthquake protection. Learn more about the most important milestones in this article.

What can vibration dampers do for earthquake-resistant construction?

Effective, easy to install, cost-efficient: Vibration dampers are ideal for dissipating earthquake-induced energy from the main structure. Learn how the different damping systems function in earthquake-resistant construction.

Earthquake-Resistant Construction: How Base Isolation Can Protect Buildings

Unexpected earthquakes not only cause high economic losses but also claim many lives, most being due to collapsing houses and buildings. In this article you will learn how earthquake-resistant construction can provide protection against this.
