Steering

The challenge

The management of steering axles is a core issue for the latest generation of commercial vehicles, and a key factor in ensuring active safety. Sonceboz offers a range of actuators and electric motors that serve as the active components in your electrohydraulic system. Whichever system you choose, we can offer you a mechatronic solution that includes functions such as built-in redundancy, intelligent monitoring and recognised quality over the long term

Steering of commercial vehicles

The Sonceboz approach

To overcome the challenges of steering, Sonceboz can offer a dedicated technology: a compact power motor. This is a brushless permanent-magnet synchronous motor with a power range of 0.5 kW to 6 kW, or even more upon request. It integrates an EC motor and an optimally tuned controller. You get a fully integrated drive solution with an electric motor, the controller. Our technology is already at work!
