UK-based engineering and technology company Titan has announced a new high-tech steer-by-wire system designed for bespoke and lower-volume manufacturers. With its origins in motorsport, the company has four decades of manufacturing experience, and its new steering system was designed, developed, and manufactured completely in-house.
The next-generation steer-by-wire system features bespoke electric motor and electronic control system, biased to 48-volts. Both systems enable optimum performance and infinite tuneability.
“Titan’s flexibility and in-house expertise means we occupy a unique position in the marketplace versus more traditional large Tier 1 suppliers, which do not cater for the specific needs of lower-volume makers when it comes to electric steering systems,” said George Lendrum, CEO of Titan. “Thanks to our focused engineering structure and motorsport ethos, we can provide a manufacturer, whether a new EV start up or established OEM, with a completely bespoke by-wire steering system incredibly quickly. And one that is completely tuneable by the customer to the specific needs of their vehicle – be that an electric hypercar, delivery truck or an automated vehicle.”
The new by-wire system is also scalable and optimised for particularly challenging packaging requirements. Titan’s experience in precision manufacturing means it can create anything from a first prototype to a final production run with unparalleled quality at lower volume.
“This new by-wire system builds on the reputation Titan has forged in designing, developing and precision manufacturing the world’s leading electric steering systems for the auto industry,” said Lendrum. “This advanced, state-of-the-art system, combined with our inherent flexibility, uniquely positions Titan as the go-to lower-volume steering supplier for manufacturers of next-generation vehicles, whatever the application.”
