Gummimetall® Axle springs are multi-purpose vibration-reducing elements. The individual metals are firmly held together with vulcanized layers of elastomers.
Due to their simple installation and long lifespan, axle springs are ideal for use in all types of rail vehicles.
By selecting the angles and the number of intermediate spring links as well as the angles of the axle bearings to each other, three different spring stiffness can be produced, depending on the direction. Furthermore, selecting the geometric dimensions of the individual layers and the corresponding rubber quality can also vary the degree of stiffness.
