Vessels like rescue boats, patrol boats and anchor handling boats have to show 100 percent performance, even in the most extreme conditions. These so called ‘special seagoing conditions’ require propulsion equipment that withstands the test.
Rubber Design is a leading specialist when it comes to offering a range of anti-vibration solutions and associated marine propulsion equipment. Especially for the specific part of the maritime industry that relies on performance, even when running on top speed, in heavy weather and without compromising the comfort of the passengers.
Solutions that perform in all conditions
We design, produce, test and deliver custom made solutions. We join the building process in a very early stage of the development of the vessel, which enables us to come up with solutions that perform in all the conditions a client may think of.
The range of propulsion equipment consists of TT (Thrust Torque) mountings, gearbox mountings, marine and flexible couplings and thrust bearings. Rubber Design can perform a complete dynamic analysis of a vessel’s propulsion system in order to select the correct coupling and engine mounts for each application. CAD drawings (2D/3D) of the thrust blocks and marine couplings are available in different formats and can be easily imported into the CAD drawing of the complete propeller shaft installation. All thrust blocks and marine couplings can be delivered with the required classification approval.
