Sidem introduces new torque optimizing technique

Torque optimization for complete range of axial joints

As an awarded OEM producer of steering and suspension parts, Sidem has developed a new torque optimizing technique. The goal of the new technique is to reduce and stabilize torque, resulting into smooth driving and safety on the road. Being an aftermarket specialist, Sidem is now also taking the lead in torque optimizing in this market and is implementing the technique on its complete range of axial joints. 


Smooth steering

As the axial joints transfer steering motion to the wheels, the right responsiveness of these parts is crucial for smooth steering. Axial joints have a thick wall housing that is closed during the assembly process by cold forming. The cold forming  process leads to a lot of stress into the system. This results into higher and instable torque. As a consequence, cars with high torque axial joints installed are very likely to risk heavy noise and excessive wear or damage to the steering system. Sidem’s new torque optimizing technique relieves this stress in the system and ensures that axial joints are installed with the correct tension on the part.

Optimized range

Sidem recently introduced their new torque optimizing technique. This unique technique is now applied on the complete range of axial joints. Find all axial joint references in Sidem’s catalogue: catalogue.sidem.be
