Modern Development of Mechanical Spring Truck Seating 670044

Through continuing and realistic innovations in concept, design, and testing, mechanical spring seating in trucks has vastly improved in recent years. Development of modern truck seats begins with the original seat package layout derived from the cab package. Then the details covering seat frame design are worked out so that prototype models can be received by the truck manufacturer at least a year in adfance of model production in order to provide adequate test, development, ride, and refinement time. Numerous and comprehensive laboratory and road vehicle tests are conducted to insure that the best seat is made available for the intended truck, with comfortable seating for the occupant at an economical cost.
