What do the terms convoluted, rolling lobe, and tapered sleeve mean?

0

Convoluted refers to an air spring constructed with one, two, or more convolutions, which are defined by the end plates and equally-spaced dividing rings which have a lesser diameter than the rubber membrane. This construction forms a bellows, or “donut” shape. Rolling lobe and tapered sleeve air springs are cylindrical in construction. Typically sleeves have a lower rate curve than bellows, which provides a more comfortable ride when carrying for lighter loads.
