How to design a spring that would work in all three direction ie x,y ,

How to design a spring that would work in all three direction ie x,y ,

(OP)
Hello
I would like to know about any suspension system which can take loads in all three direction ie x y z with a maximum deflection of +or - 1.5 inch

You could make a search for "air springs" for example those manufactured by Firestone Indl. Products or make a rubber spring in a spherical shape, or concentric spherical cases separated by ruber pads.

Hello

I had thought about the fire stone air spring
since somebody else had done it
i wanted something new
could you be more elaborate in telling me how how co centeric spring works with rubber
regards

RE: How to design a spring that would work in all three direction ie x,y ,

Concentric steel spherical shells (or semiespherical)
at least two sheels, sparated by an arrangement (icosahedron, for example) of rubber pads.
It works in similar way that a rubber springs composed by a metalic plain washer joined with a rubber washer, then joined with a metalic washer and then again rubber washer....This arrangement in order to get more linear-like curve force-versus-deformation
I hope this can help you
Sincerely

hello
i have problems visualizing  it
if you dont mind could you please give me a schematic diagrame
my email id is rupi12@rediffmail.com
i have designed a system i would like to send it as a attachemnt
regards

1.5 in deflection for what load?  What configuration do you have for mounting to the suspension and for the suspension to ground?

If you put 6 stiff springs attached orthogonally and suspend the whole thing in a box, that will satisfy your problem statement.
