We use various types of suspensions for chassis its all depend upon the customers requirements we use alko dexter and vehicle components also tuff ride
we use following suspensions :-
- LEAF SPRING SUSPENSION
The word A leaf spring takes the form of a slender arc-shaped length of spring steel of rectangular cross-section. In the most common configuration, the center of the arc provides location for the axle, while tie holes are provided at either end for attaching to the vehicle body.a leaf spring can be made from several leaves stacked on top of each other in several layers, often with progressively shorter leaves depending upon axle load requirement. Leaf springs can serve locating and to some extent damping as well as springing functions.
A leaf spring can either be attached directly to the frame at both ends called eye to eye or attached directly at one end called eye to slipper, usually the front, with the other end attached through a shackle, a short swinging arm. The shackle takes up the tendency of the leaf spring to elongate when compressed and thus makes for softer springiness. Some springs terminated in a concave end, called a spoon end (seldom used now), to carry a swiveling member. The leaf spring acts as a linkage for holding the axle in position and thus separate linkages are not necessary. It makes the construction of the suspension simple and strong.
- TORFLEX AXLES (DEXTER BRAKE)
In torflex axle the axle tube has a mounting plate that attaches directly to the van or trailer chassis, adding strength as a load-carrying cross member. The design is low-profile, like a leaf-spring arrangement, but has better ride quality and the advantage of independent action: a bump or hole on one side of the vehicle doesn’t directly affect the other side. Dexter’s unique arrangement employs a solid, square-section, heat-treated- steel inner bar that is surrounded by four rubber blocks. As Forged torsion arm movement tries to rotate the inner bar the action causes rolling compressive resistance in the rubber blocks. The Torflex design has self-damping action and the rubber cushioning eliminates metal-to- metal contact. The result is less transfer of road shock.The adjustable trailing arm can be set to give more or less road clearance and works equally well in single-axle and tandem applications, the company says. Torflex comes as a two wheel-end- axle in varying track dimensions, or can be supplied as two modular single-wheel- end units. Torflex is made in the USA in an ISO 9001 Certified factory and comes with a five-year limited warranty.
