Ognibene Power SpA launches new HSBW system


Ognibene Power SpA, a leading company for hydraulic steering systems (actuators and steering units) for more than 60 years, will make its world premiere at the Agritechnica Exhibition 2017.

Its patented HSBW system (Hybrid Steer By Wire) for on-public-road use, designed to reach AgPL d/e or PL d/e performance level (ISO25119/ISO13849), will be presented at the German trade fair.

This new technology is placed over the traditional steering architecture of off-highway vehicles, decoupling steering wheel from steered wheels, improving manoeuvrability and enabling the use of GPS and autonomous driving systems without any external steering kit.

Thanks to the decoupling clutch, the driver is able to override the system through the steering wheel and keep full control, even in case of failure.

The main benefits are:

Synthetic boost curve Variable steering ratio and fast steering feature Improved manoeuvrability (high stability at high speed and low effort during maneuver) Direct integration with GPS Realignment of wheels in forward and reverse direction

Ognibene Group has production sites in Italy, Brazil, India and China, as well as a logistic site in the US and a commercial office in Japan. Its facilities ensure the production of steering systems to the world’s largest OEMs.
