Air suspension is a type of suspension system used in vehicles to provide comfort to drivers while driving. The air suspension system present in vehicle is powered by an electric or engine-driven air pump or compressor. These factors have positively impacted the air suspension market growth. These pumps or compressors attached to the suspension system allows air to flow into the suspension system, which is usually made from textile-reinforced rubber.
Air suspension system is used in a vehicle as a replacement for conventional steel springs and have a wider application in heavy vehicles such as buses, trucks, rolling stock, and various heavy vehicles.
The main purpose of air suspension is to provide a smooth and constant ride quality to drivers and passengers.
A good quality ride provides comfort to passengers, minimizes damage to cargo, and reduces driver fatigue on long journeys. Suspension is responsible for quality of rides and control on car handling, as cars with firm suspension could result in greater control of body movements and quicker reactions.
Ambulances have a special need for a high level of ride quality, to avoid further injury to the already ill passengers.
