The critical area of a commercial vehicle spring under high load is its surface. Even minor flaws in the surface layer can create starting points for cracks. To avoid spring fractures, we at Schomäcker treat the surfaces of our springs with shot peening. This process ensures a more homogenous surface and creates a residual compressive strength. This video gives you an insight into this process which renders the surfaces of parabolic springs, beam and leaf springs more homogenous, more resistant and resilient.
