A Rubber buffer also known as rubber-metal buffer is used in industry mainly to absorb kinetic energy and belong to the product family Dampening elements. They are especially important by repeat impact forces and rapidly moving parts with end stops. Rubber buffers from norelem help to reduce vibrations on machines and give a sprung mounting. Rubber buffers are often used as mounts for aggregates, as door stops or noise reduction elements.

Depending on the construction, rubber buffers absorb the energy according to the buffer form. With high radial deflection by shear loading a tapered rubber contour has optimal dampening properties. Whereas parabolic shaped rubber buffers absorb strong impact loads very well. The application possibilities vary depending on the situation. The buffers variably applicable in machine environments.
