COMMON SPRINGS APPLICATIONS IN THE RAIL INDUSTRY
As rail spring manufacturers, our springs are sought after for a number of applications within this sector. Take a look at some of the most popular uses for our products in this sector:
- Buffer springs on the front of the train
- Springs in the brake pedals
- Deadman switches in the cab
- Springs in the door switches
- Clips in the seating
Custom springs are used frequently throughout the rail network for suspension systems, pistons and supports.
RAIL SPRING MATERIALS
Springs that we manufacture for the rail industry need to be strong, durable, corrosion-resistant and withstand years of supporting the heavy load of a railway carriage. Steel, rubber and air springs – often used in unison with one another, are all viable options for spring applications in the rail industry.
Steel is commonly used for rail suspension systems due to its good wear resistance, low maintenance requirements and cost-effectiveness. For suspension applications, steel can be alloyed with high levels of silicon to improve hardness and strength – perfect for bearing the weight of a heavy railway carriage.
