The leaf spring is the oldest form of suspension there is. In the middle ages, and later when developing motor vehicles, leaf springs were used as suspension system. Nowadays, this type of leaf spring is still used for pick-ups, trucks, and trains.
In a lot of industries and in a lot of products, mostly the smaller types of leaf springs are used in a multitude of variations. The main advantage of a leaf spring is that it has little or no leeway of friction. This makes a very high position precision and longevity possible. Another advantage of a leaf spring is the high stiffness in the length when compared to the stiffness in the cross section. This maintains freedom of movement.

- C-75 spring strip steel (according Din 17222)
- CuSn 6 phosphor bronze (according Din 17662)
Other types of material are available on request.
Leaf springs are being produced with the aid of pressure presses, wire sparking machines, bending and folding machines to create the desired shaped.
