Springs must be able to withstand the bumps and bruises of the road throughout the world, and must have extremely high load-bearing capacities. They optimise driving comfort by cushioning road surface impact. They ensure precise axle control and provide stability, even on winding roads. Above all, they ensure the safety of transported goods and road users – after all, they have heavy loads to bear: springs for commercial vehicles.
Parabolic springs consist of individual, parabolically rolled out leaves that can adjust to the loads they have to carry. Parabolic springs vary in thickness, ensuring an even distribution of stress.
Lighter and thinner than multi-leaf springs, but parabolic springs still demonstrate enhanced durability and resistance. They help reduce the overall weight of the truck being 30% lighter which also results in reduced fuel consumption.
The trailing arm is part of a quiet, convenient and modern air suspension system where the spring acts as the link between the axle and the chassis. The axles are controlled safely and stabilised, cushioning and absorbing braking forces.
Trailing arms, used in towing vehicles, have also proved effective as a spring system for trailer equipment.
Today, the comparatively heavy multi-leaf spring is mainly used in construction and agricultural vehicles. Not only can multi-leaf springs be manufactured easily and economically, they are also easy to repair and reinforce.
