Air springs vs. steel springs

The integrated air spring is significantly better than conventional steel spring structures, particularly when it comes to driver comfort and safety. It is used in axle, cab and driver’s seat suspension applications. Our technology offers a significantly reduced natural frequency and individually adjustable stroke height and spring travel. Our solutions to specific applications are precision engineered and extremely reliable.

Benefits:

  • High degree of driving comfort, reduced chassis wear and reduced loads due to the low natural frequency
  • Constant natural frequency thanks to air pressure control and constant spring volume 
  • Constant vehicle height thanks to the level control system
