Enabling better ergonomicsThe SKF steering unit is a solution that combines reliable encoder technology with the simplicity of “plug-and-play” component packaging. By enabling the steering wheel to be located where it fits best, operator efficiency can be increased due to improved ergonomics - e.g. no need for steering columns - and better overall working conditions.
For agricultural equipment manufacturers, major benefits include high design flexibility, easy assembly, reduced costs and enhanced vehicle performance. The fact that the steering unit is common to different vehicle platforms, and has a compact and robust design, makes modular design and vehicle assembly possible - and simple. The unit also is adaptable to various ergonomic conditions, from a finger steering wheel to a large steering wheel.
