Leaf Springs are made of a glass or carbon fibre composite material. They have high dynamic strength and are corrosion and fatigue resistant. In comparison to normal steel springs, leaf springs have superior mechanical strength and are far more robust. They’re often used on vibratory feed conveyors in the food sector for metering, weighing, and packing. Leaf springs are available in the grades listed below, all of which may be machined to meet the needs of the customer.
Conveyor machines, dosing plants, feeding devices, and drive mechanisms are all used in screening, paper processing, and conveyor machines.
HFX Leaf Springs combine unidirectional glass fibres with a dark green epoxy resin that offers high flexural strength and stiffness.
HCF Leaf Springs are manufactured from aerospace grade unidirectional carbon fibres combined with a dark epoxy resin. This material is commonly used on more demanding and high performance machinery.

SYD Leaf Springs have a strictly parallel-oriented, non-interlaced glass fibre structure. The fibres are neither pre-stretched nor bent and epoxy resin compounds are used as binding agents. The special balanced composition ensures high adhesion to the glass fibre surface, resulting in optimum dynamic and electrical properties. The mechanical properties can also be adapted to meet specific requirements by adjusting the orientation of layers during the manufacturing process.
