In the industrial vehicles market, operating conditions are usually harsh. In addition, safety is an important factor. Vibrations, extremes of temperature and heavy mechanical loads present serious design challenges.
Plastics, often in (chemical-resistant) versions, are frequently used as shielding for moving parts and panels. Various operating and control elements are also enclosed in impact and vibration resistant plastic housings by which design and weight reduction are realised.
In addition to functional requirements, other important preconditions for new designs include the reduction of assembly costs and the service-related exchangeability of components. Pekago uses a list of requirements for control of the development/engineering process, which enables early recognition of critical or risky situations. If applicable, the FMEA method is used during the engineering phase.
