Conical Mounts


GMT can offer a large range of conical mounts (also known as conical suspensions springs) principally for use on rail vehicle secondary suspension systems, but also suitable for other industrial applications. Their compact design offers high load capacity along with large static vertical deflection. By incorporating slots or voids in the rubber sections, their horizontal stiffness can be altered. Buffers can also be incorporated in to the conical suspension spring design in order to absorb additional shock loads.


The conical mount design allows for considerable spring excursion and offers a progressive stiffness curve. Stiffness characteristics can be changed by altering the geometry of the sections, varying the number of metal interleaves or by adding slots in the rubber sections.
