GATES DRIVEALIGN TORSIONAL VIBRATION DAMPERS
AUTOMOTIVE DRIVEALIGN TORSIONAL VIBRATION DAMPERS
Discover more about our torsional vibration dampers that are vital in keeping the crankshaft and engine working properly.
Car manufacturers are looking to make vehicles lighter using more lightweight components. At the same time modern engines are becoming more powerful. More power means more strain on the lightweight components causing more vibrations. To address this, they have replaced the ordinary crankshaft pulley with torsional vibration dampers or harmonic balancers which absorb vibrations from the crankshaft and extend the life time of other components in the drive system.
As a complete system supplier, Gates offers a wide range of DriveAlign® torsional vibration dampers (TVDs) that keep the crankshaft and engine working properly.
FIT AND FUNCTION LIKE THE ORIGINAL
Prevent failure of the crankshaft by fatigue
Decrease wear and tear on the belt, tensioner and other components in the driven assembly
Improve noise, vibration and harshness (NVH) characteristics, and therefore increase the comfort of vehicle drivers and their passengers
NEW ADDITION TO THE PACKAGING: ALL MOUNTING BOLTS
Our most popular TVD boxes now also include all of the required bolts. Using new bolts is recommended for a safe and correct replacement.
WATCH OUT FOR FAKE DAMPERS!
Those cheap pulleys do not have any damping function at all as there is no rubber element inside! They only have a rubber O-ring on the outside!
