Our Products


Conventional Leaf Springs

Also known as multi-leaf springs, conventional leaf springs are manufactured from a specific spring steel grade and profile. Their use is seen mainly on medium to heavy vehicles, agricultural and industrial machinery and also still on LCVs. Their main advantage is the possibility of being easily repaired, key disadvantages are their weight and volume, and also the existence of unwanted interleaf friction.

Parabolic Leaf Springs

An evolution of conventional leaf springs, parabolics are designed with constant stress in mind. The parabolic profile of each leaf guarantees that only the essential quantity of steel is used, leading to significantly lighter springs when compared to conventionals. They are also manufactured from a specific spring steel and profile, appropriate for the taper rolling operation they are submitted to. Main advantages are their lightness and virtually nonexistence of interleaf friction by design, key disadvantage can be a slightly more difficult repair, especially in remote locations.

Trailing Arms

Developed for air suspension, mostly seen in trailers, buses and trucks, but also more and more on different machinery, trailing arms are typically a hybrid between a parabolic spring and a structure for holding the axle and air bellow in position. Manufactured also from a specific spring steel grade and profile, with much higher thicknesses than their counterparts, design normally aims for high spring rates and lateral rigidity.
