COIL SPRINGS - TECHNICAL ASSISTANCE

A car without suspension or suspension very stiff, could rebound to go through any irregularity in the road, wheels could rebound, losing contact off the floor, making place unsafe and uncomfortable.

Suspension systems prevent that a car overturns when it is giving a curve.

With no suspension, the tires skid, and with the irregularities of the road the coup goes to the rudder and vehicle passengers.

What is a coil spring? A coil spring is a cylindrical rod and hot rolled in spiral form.

The steps for its production are:

  • Winding,
  • Heat Treatment,
  • Blasting,
  • Painting,
  • Pre-set.

LEAF SPRINGS - TECHNICAL ASSISTANCE

The leaf springs are the element that ensures the bodywork with the bearing of the vehicle.

To be improperly installed the vehicle will lose control over the trademark. Absorbs shocks that occur during operation, thus reduces the risk of damage to other delicate and expensive pieces.

Besides being where the bodywork is suspended is the smooth ride, comfortable and supports the weight of the charge.

COMPONENTS:

IMAL leaf spring is composed of different parts that act integral form.

ALTERATION OR MODIFICATION OF ANY OF THE PARTS AFFECT THE OPERATION, THE LIFE AND THE SAFETY OF THE VEHICLE.

PARTS OF THE LEAF SPRING:

  • Rope or line of difference,
  • Eye,
  • Width,
  • Bushing,
  • Thickness,
  • Central Drilling,
  • Fleca or free arc,
  • Setting the tip.

LEAF SPRINGS

CHARACTERISTICS:

  • Painting WB,
  • Original Specifications,
  • Traceability,
  • Hardness guaranteed,
  • The countermark,
  • Controlled leaves exactly measured,
  • Original curvatures,
  • Controlled termic treatment,
  • Shot blasting.

ADVANTAGES:

  • Prevents damage to other parts of the vehicle,
  • Maintains the comfort of the vehicle,
  • When the suspension is too soft, the vehicle loses carrying capacity,
  • Reduce the cost of being permanently changing leaves,
  • Reduces vehicle maintenance costs.

COIL SPRINGS

BENEFITS:

Stability

A good stability gives security to the vehicle, makes it easier to stop driving, a coil spring in good condition along with the other suspension parts makes a safe place.

Comfortable Handling

By placing an IMAL coil spring, handling is comfortable, if the spring is worn down, vehicle loses stability and handling is becoming more insecure.

Height of Vehicle

The change of Coil Spring renews the height of the vehicle, renewing its appearance, its geometry and proper alignment of the car.

Carrying Capacity

The coil spring can carry much weight, as the first sign of spring fatigue is the lack of ability to support much weight.

CHARACTERISTICS:

Give Height

The height of a vehicle is one of the first considerations when designing a car since this depends on the center of gravity, that means stability and lateral movement. The other suspension parts work in a range of movement at the height that gives the spring. This height is a exclusive function of the spring.

Support Weight

The springs are responsible for supporting the weight of the bodywork and other parts of the car, besides the weight of occupants and the assigned charge. The shock absorbers do not fulfill this function, when a normal charge is done and the vehicle gets down is a sign of wear on the coil spring.

Shock Absortion

The irregularities of the road generate wheels absorb impact depending on their size, if they are small, vibration generated is absorbed by the tires, if they are major irregularities, spring absorbs them, thus these generate a deformation in the spring, that means, it compresses and then expands.
