The Challenge

The customer also supplies pneumatic wheels for airport carts. Their search for a suitable specialized bracket led them to Blickle. We were faced with the challenge of designing a connection point for the tie rod (which ensures positive steering) that would need to be added to the swivel bracket. Our design had to guarantee that the bracket would not collide with the tie rod.

Our Solution

Due to its high load capacity, a LS heavy-duty bracket was the only option. We worked with the customer to determine their individual requirements and sort out the details of the connection points. A plate with attachment points (bolts) was added to the swivel fork. The tie rod is fixed to these points. Two 30x45° chamfers were fixed to the bracket to prevent the bracket from colliding with the tie rod.
