Insertion of Leaf Spring Bushings

leaf spring bushings This two-station machine assures the fast and accurate insertion of rubber bushings in rear leaf springs.

The operator manually loads the spring into the machine's fixture and places a bushing in the mounting hole at each end of the spring. A hydraulically driven ram at each location is brought down to press the bushings into place. Two metal tabs on each bushing are crimped over by the ram tooling to lock the bushings securely. The spring is unloaded manually, ready for mounting on the chassis.
