Through a national sales, service and technical support network, Air Springs Supply has become Australia's leading supplier of air springs and associated pneumatic technology for the industrial and transport sectors.
The company offers advanced efficient and reliable solutions for the engineering of industrial actuation and isolation systems and vehicle suspensions.
Air Springs Supply is the first supplier of air spring isolators, actuators and suspension components in the country to achieve Q-Base quality certification from the internationally respected National Association of Testing Authorities, NATA.
The company is supplier of Firestone air springs, highly engineered elastomeric bellows with specifically designed metal end closures. These air springs incorporate a carefully designed rubber and fabric bellows that contains a column of compressed air. The rubber bellows itself does not provide force or support load - the column of air does this when the air spring is inflated according to the load required of it.
The load capacity of the air springs can vary from 40-40,000kg. A standard two ply air spring is made up of four layers:
- An inner liner of calendered rubber,
- A first ply of fabric-reinforced rubber,
- A second ply of fabric reinforced rubber (with the cords at a specific bias angle to one another),
- An outer cover of calendered rubber.
