Moving people with expert engineering
In Europe, buses and coaches cater for 55 per cent of public transport requirements. Every minute of every day, in countless towns and cities around the world, there are thousands of passengers depending on bus or coach services, for social, commuting and business purposes.
Passenger vehicles undertake long journeys, through turbulent weather and carrying varying weights, and the steering systems for these vehicles have to be designed and manufactured with this in mind. Pailton’s bespoke steering systems, from sliding steering shafts to suspension links, are tested against these relentless conditions, ensuring the vehicle is agile and nimble when driving at speed, changing lanes and manoeuvring.
Testing to the limits
We carry out in-house validation testing to determine endurance and maximum load, testing against incidents such as curb strikes and pot holes that a bus or coach will face from time to time. Environmental testing is also undertaken to ensure a large steering system is protected sufficiently from moisture, temperature fluctuations and humidity variance.
The technical team is available to advise any bus or coach OEM looking for a coach or bus steering parts manufacturer, and can be reached on +44 (0) 24 7668 0445. You can also e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
