Company Profile

LEBEN manufactures hydraulic industrial shock absorbers, vibration dampers, buffers, deformation tubes, hydrostatic / visco-elastic buffers & special shock absorbers according to individual customer requirements.

LEBEN was founded in 1967. In its early years, the family-run company developed, among other things, ski groomer vehicles for ski runs. Since 1980, only shock reducing elements and vibration dampers are developed and manufactured under our trademark Compenser®.

More than 50 years of successful customer relationships around the globe and the continuous development of our products for a wide range of applications confirm our strength and expertise in the field of damping technology.

The calculation of our shock reduction elements is carried out in compliance with the VDI Directive VDI 2061 "Modular elements for reduction of shock effects".Our products comply with the relevant regulations of the EC Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC.
We are certified according to DIN EN ISO 9001:2015, a tribute to our quality policy.

Our goal is to meet each individual requirements of our customers. For use in extreme high temperatures or low temperatures, we offer our damping medium Compensol® .

On this homepage you will find a wide range of standard shock reducing elements, also called dampers, industrial shock absorbers, or buffers.

In view of the wide range of applications for damping technology, LEBEN-Dämpfungstechnik GmbH provides different types of shock absorbers, including Heavy Duty Shock Absorbers, Emergency Shock Absorbers (emergency stop), Shock Absorbers For Operationally Load Cycles and Irreversible Shock Absorbers.

 

Industrial Shock Absorber

Railway coupling

Gas-hydraulic industrial shock absorber of the company LEBEN-Dämpfungstechnik GmbH installed in a railway coupling.

Industrial shock absorbers stacker conveyor

Conveyor system

An industrial shock absorber of the series “C-Type” by the company LEBEN-Dämpfungstechnik GmbH. The shock absorber is mounted on a storage and retrieval machine and is equipped with a sensor to monitor the movement of the piston rod which is pressed during operation.

Characteristic: Dynamic application with high deceleration.

Hydraulic Crane Buffer

Crane system

Hydraulic industrial shock absorber of the “S-type” series from LEBEN-Dämpfungstechnik GmbH mounted on an intermodal crane. The buffer was equipped with rubber bellows over the piston rod.

Characteristics: High-energy damping due to large moving mass.

Industrial Shock Absorber

End of track stop

An end of track shock absorber of the “S-Type” series from LEBEN-Dämpfungstechnik GmbH with a very long piston rod. The buffer was integrated into the concrete base at the end of the railway track by means of an installation tube.

Depth of manufacturing

For machining, LEBEN-Dämpfungstechnik GmbH relies on various CNC machining centers, among them well-known manufacturers such as TRAUB, EMCO and WFL.

Processing of maximum component sizes:

  • Length: up to 4500 mm
  • Diameter: up to 700 mm

Validation

New developments can usually be tested dynamically, statically and permanently loaded in-house. In case of very high energy absorption, the tests of our products are carried out at recognized institutes such as TÜV Süd GmbH.
