The chevron spring is composed of three metal plates and rubber compounds.
These three plates are bonded to each other by vulcanized rubber compounds in a “V” chevron shape with equal spacing.
Chevron spring is a multi-purpose shock-absorbing component that can obtain different spring stiffness in longitudinal, horizontal, and vertical directions.
However, the chevron spring can obtain different stiffness by changing the number of layers or dimensions of metal plates or adjusting the performance of rubber material.
At the same time, different rigidity also can be provided by changing installation angles.
The chevron spring is widely used in rail vehicles, like light rail trains and intercity trains.
It functions as a damper for the primary suspension, and it’s installed between the axle box and bogie of rail vehicles.
Furthermore, it has the characteristics of a lightweight, simple structure, and long service life.
For your information, RNTICO can design different types of chevron springs with different dimensions, installation angles, and mechanical performances.
The rubber pad for draft gear is a shock-absorbing component for rail vehicles.
It’s installed into draft gear and used to connect vehicles and vehicles, locomotives, or bullet trains, transmit traction and braking force, and ease the longitudinal impact.
The rubber pad for draft gear with the brand RNTICO® has the characteristics of high load, high physical performance, low-temperature resistance, and creep resistance, and they have supplied to the manufacturers of draft gear in large quantities.
For now, RNTICO® can provide the above-mentioned stocked products for selection.
