Remanufacturing of Hydraulic Power Steering has played a significant and important role for OES and the automotive parts aftermarket industry over the last thirty plus years. With the technological advancements in vehicle systems and the shift to Electronic Power Steering (EPS), the viability of EPS remanufacturing is called into question.
Digital disruption is migrating out of Silicon Valley and out onto America’s concrete arteries. It’s likely your company is already investing in connected car technology – but are you applying it to your suspension systems? Should you?

Cost-Effective Skyhook Control for Semiactive Vehicle Suspension Applications
Skyhook control, which is now widely applied to vehicle suspension control, requires two sensors to measure sprung mass acceleration and relative displacement, respectively. In the practical implementation, these two measurement signals are converted into corresponding velocities; then per the skyhook control policy the velocities are employed to Read more
