Integral hydraulic power steering gears, similar in concept to those used on current passenger cars, are now being used on heavy and extra-heavy trucks. This integral gear concept combines the steering gear, the control valve, and the hydraulic power cylinder into one durable and reliable assembly.
This paper describes how such a gear was especially designed for this application, how the design was proven by qualification tests, and how product integrity is maintained. It is shown how this integral hydraulic power steering gear satisfies the needs of the heavy truck industry.
