Aesthetics, function and price of the construction were the leading factors during the development of the coupler. In sharp contrast with the original welded construction the investment casting connects seamless to the other components of the steering system. Additionally the wiring can be easily concealed inside the assembly.
This console is a repeating element from an agricultural machine. The old construction had many problems with fatigue failure and warping due to welding. These problems were successfully eliminated during the engineering of a new, optimised sand casting. The price and weight reduction were mere additional advantages that are of good use in the agricultural sector.

EDS-Casting & Forging developed this casting on its own initiative. This single casting replaces five separate parts and simplifies the adjustment of the construction during use in the field. This casting made the assembly faster and the construction easier, lighter and less expensive.
The development of the steering knuckle was a complicated project that featured synergy analyses, topology optimisation and a high performance material that was unknown to the client. Through all machining and welding the old construction was heavy and expensive. The new solution integrates three variations into a single high strength ductile iron sand casting
The pin block is an upgrade for a fully machined aluminium and stainless steel assembly in an electro mover. By reconstructing this product into a precision investment casting the weight and the costs were halved. Additionally the clients logo could be cast into the product without adding costs, thereby adding value.
