Anatomy of an Aeon® Rubber Spring: The Wedge
Timbren’s Aeon® springs provide a reliable alternative to metal and air springs. They improve suspension performance both as a sole suspension and as a spring helper.
As you can see, Aeon® hollow rubber springs come in many shapes and sizes. Some are round, some are rectangular and some are wedge-shaped.
Round Aeon® springs come single convoluted, double convoluted and triple convoluted.
Aeon® Rubber Springs have unique features such as:
- Variable Spring Rate
- Self-Damping Properties
- Vibration Isolation
- Maintenance Free
- Superior Ride Quality
- Simple Application
Today, we’re going to focus on wedge-shaped springs.
Aeon® springs: The Wedge
When Timbren first considered developing a trailer suspension using Aeon® rubber springs, they understood that this was going to be no ordinary suspension.
In fact, its unique design would require a wedge-shaped rubber spring. A spring that could fit between the upper hanger and the lower control arm of the new design.*
In addition to their unique shape, these Aeon® springs are made of solid rubber: No convolutions, no hollow core.
