There are many components used in a steering system for today’s modern commercial vehicle. As an alternative to a rack and pinion steering system, the steering drag link (or centre rod) is used to ultimately allow the vehicle to be steered in the direction required.
Commercial vehicle engineering covers a wide range of manufacturing processes and products, from drive shafts to exhaust systems. Each has its own particular set of requirements and expertise which is why many companies specialise in just one part of the vehicle. Here, we take a look at the steering system side of commercial vehicle engineering.
Collapsible steering columns were introduced to reduce the number of serious injuries caused by the impact of the steering column and wheel on the driver’s body in the case of a frontal impact collision whilst driving. Since the first vehicle was produced, the typical way to steer the vehicle was through a single piece steering […]
It seems that every day there are new technological advancements in the automotive industry. For commercial vehicle manufacturers, it is essential to keep pace with these developments. This is why you need an automotive system engineering company to help you stay ahead of the market.
