Fully compatible with road-rail systems, our rubber suspension units provide a cost effective solution at a fraction of the price of a spring based system generally favoured in the manufacture of base vehicles from which road-rail systems are developed.

With many road-rail systems using converted road vehicles, road-rail vehicle engineers require flexibility from their components due to the often fixed nature of axle widths. Our bespoke design service allows designers to work with us to produce a solution which fits the size, load and budgetary constraints of the specification. Our units can be made to virtually any load specification and can be made to fit in even the most limited of spaces by mixing the consistency of the rubber within them to achieve specific deflection characteristics under load. This can provide a smooth and predictable damping effect over a long and maintenance free service life.

We are aware of safety issues within the road-rail deployment – damaged rail wheel support systems, uneven loading and even wheel failure being the more common, yet our rigorous testing procedures which include finite element analysis, load deflection analysis and prototyping ensure that the solution we engineer is thoroughly tested for the specification provided, before being implemented.

We would always recommend that road-rail manufacturers consider a bonded rubber suspension unit due to the potentially harsh working environments often found when machinery is exposed to unpredictable weather and potential for loose material ingress into the machinery itself. Both semi bonded and fully bonded units have a full-fill construction and are encased in a metal shell, ensuring the unit is weather and material-ingress sealed.
