Axle / Chevron Springs

Axle / Chevron are optimally suited for primary spring modules with a large degree of variation in vertical and horizontal stiffness. They often eliminate the need for other dampers.

Chevron springs are widely used for axlebox primary suspensions of light rail, passenger and freight vehicles as well as locomotives. They are installed in pairs in a V-shaped configuration to provide compliance in the vertical, lateral and longitudinal directions. They are simple in design and provide good service life and low maintenance.
