Rear Rubber Suspension offers increased ride quality, stability.

August 7, 2014

HAULMAAX® vocational rear suspension system is available with Progressive Load Spring (PLS). Working in concert with bolster springs in Vari-Rate™ Spring system, elastomeric spring optimizes ride quality in loaded and unloaded conditions. As payload increases, spring further engages and functions together with rubber bolster springs to provide additional stability. Constant engagement also eliminates need for shim adjustments for most applications. Read More

Constant Force Springs include brush wear indicator.

March 31, 2014

Available as option on all constant force spring assemblies, brush wear indicator allows users to see at-a-glance whether carbon brushes need replacing. This helps prevent exposed shunts or inadequate spring force from causing damage to commutators or rings. By ensuring optimal spring force, constant force springs with wear device minimize electrical wear and maximize brush life. Read More

Linear Springs act as load bearing devices.

May 22, 2013

Comprised of continuous wave formed wire length produced from spring tempered materials, Linear Spring Series offers selection of spring loads that react along straight line. This allows placement in axial direction while providing radial force. Products act as load bearing devices having approximately same load/deflection characteristics as wave spring. There are 200+ standard sizes are available in both carbon and stainless steel; exotic alloys are available upon request.
