EMKA Aluminium

Vehicle shock absorbers are subject to rigorous requirements – they need to be stable, rust-free, vibration-resistant, and lightweight. This is the reason why aluminium is frequently used as a material.

A crucial element in the system is the shock absorber tube, which comprises a tube section and a forged mounting fork. Joining the aluminium parts is accomplished by using a process referred to as friction welding. Afterwards, several machining steps are necessary: milling, drilling, and tapping. For many of these machining processes, the shock absorber tube has to be tilted, turned, swivelled, and erected.
