Insulated with natural rubber or synthetic elastomers, our rubber insulated, metal clad bushings provide flexible solutions to the noise, vibration, shock, and misalignment problems inherent in most mechanical designs.
By eliminating metal-to-metal contact, "Dual-Flex" Marine and Industrial Engine Mounts remove the danger of any excessive impact. The "Dual-Flex" mount design provides a synthetic rubber insulated engine mount for use on Gas and Diesel Marine Engines and in Industrial applications, and provides the following benefits.
The Bushings Inc. Vibro-Leveler is a dual purpose, rubber-in-shear machine mount that suppresses the transmission of vibration and noise, and allows precision leveling of your machines.
The Bushings Inc. "Silent-Lign" Flexible Bearing is a field-proven sleeve bearing assembly designed to offer low initial cost with a minimum number of parts. The "Silent-Lign" Bearing provides low installation cost, with extreme ease of application. Low maintenance cost with a constantly lubricated bearing. Plus additional design elements such as a neoprene-flexing medium, which accommodates shaft misalignment and provides quiet operation, and metal parts with an outside diameter ground for ease of assembly.
The Bushings Inc. "Silent-Lign" Pillow Block combines the best features of a constantly lubricated sleeve bearing, and an oil-resistant Neoprene flexing medium, within a sturdy Zinc-Dichromate plated, stamped and welded steel mounting bracket.

Back in early 2013, we received a phone call from a large OEM experiencing early wear out problems with the rubber-insulated bushings in their shaker machines. This was a very severe application with each of the three bushings in the machine, seeing continuous, radial, torsional, and conical loading.

One of the most frequently asked questions we receive from customers who visit us on line, or call in - is with regards to bushing design, and specifically – What method of manufacture is best for my bushing application? In this blog, we’ll examine two different approaches to bushing manufacturing design.
"I want to take this opportunity to thank the Bushings Incorporated team that recently helped us get our automated assembly line up and running. For years our line required our rubber insulated overmolds be manually inserted due to several failed attempts to get an automated press to properly insert the bushings. The Bushings Incorporated team was able to help by working with our manufacturing engineers to develop fixtures, and procedures that were able to get the automated press up and running.
With the new press up and running, the consistency has been great, and the operator is very happy with the new process. The operator says that the new press and fixturing is doing a good job at installing the bushings straight and consistent. He has experienced no “mushrooming” or tearing of the bushings with the automated press (this was the reason for manually inserting them for so many years). The operator also says that the job is much easier on him, and the production level is up due to the new process.
The help that was received to improve our process was above and beyond. That kind of support is needed and appreciated, and while most vendors lack in their support, it is my feeling that Bushings Incorporated and their team have gone one step above.
Thanks again for the support!"
