Created to demonstrate the differences between the Active Seat and standard air suspension seats, the Active Seat platform simulates tractor bouncing with a variable displacement up to 3 inches peak-to-peak and a variable frequency of 0-4 Hertz. The Active Seat uses air suspension and electro hydraulic technology to minimize vertical motion of the tractor seat, while a position sensor and an accelerometer linked to a hydraulic system repositions the seat. This results in a smoother ride for the tractor operator by eliminating 90% of the vertical inputs to the tractor. In creating the Active Seat, we worked with the client to develop a workable concept and complete engineering design, fabrication, and machine assembly within the three-month time constraint. Being portable and adaptable to European and U.S. standards, the Active Seat is ideal for use in trade shows and training programs and has been exhibited in the U.S., Australia, and Europe.

Our combined engineering, design and building capabilities allow us to provide a complete service. We can identify problems, outline solutions, and recommend action. We can design the product, machine, or system, and we can build and test machines and prototypes. We will handle any phase of a project, or we can do it all.

We have provided technical services since 1982. Over the years, we have employed or developed relationships with people having the breadth and depth of experience to work on a wide range of problems from special diagnostic analysis to comprehensive system design.

Your project is in the hands of well-trained, experienced professionals, from the concept stage through prototype build and test. Visit our PROJECTS page to learn more about the work we do, then CONTACT US to discuss how we would handle your problem.
