Steering rack is a very important part of the car. One of those who is directly responsible for our safety. And underestimating steering gear malfunctions can be critical.
We will show some information on how the steering gear is built, how its support is solved, show the most common faults and explain how to fix them. In this article we will focus on one of the types of support – it will be a fully electric solution.
EPS – Electric Power Steering.
Electric power steering systems are devoid of hydraulic parts. The specific and precisely required support moment is generated thanks to the work of the electric motor. The place of its installation can be a steering column (EPSc systems) or a gearbox.
How does electric power steering work?
The driver by turning the steering wheel raises sensors that measure the degree of steering.
The sensor communicates with the controller system, and these, by assessing parameters, among others vehicle speed and steering wheel speed, control the electric motor. The engine supports the movements of the transmission or column, depending on the solution used, which are already transferred to the movement of the strip in the transmission itself.
Everything seems complicated, and yes it is. And in case of failure, it can be expensive. Expensive if we talk about exchange. But power-assisted transmissions can be professionally remanufactured.
Turbo-Tec’s remaufacturing offer includes electrical assistance systems.
Remanufacturing, i.e. regeneration at the factory level, using genuine parts and using manufacturers’ procedures allows for completely safe and trouble-free regeneration, and a hundred percent improvement of damaged elements.
In the case of electrically-assisted steering gears, remanufacturing in Turbo-Tec consists of detailed inspection and replacement of damaged mechanical and electronic components.
Professional remanufacturing in Turbo-Tec ends with an equally professional test to make sure that you mount the element completely safe. During the test of the electric assistance systems regenerated in Turbo-Tec, the operating conditions of the assistance system are simulated for various road situations, from prosaic maneuvers in the parking lot, through heavy driving in urban conditions to fast driving on the highway.
