We recently completed a particularly gratifying application, as we retrofitted wheelchair lifts that are located on commuter buses.
Our client manufacturers transit wheelchair lifts, which enable commuters of all abilities to access public transportation. The lifts are attached to commuter busses, and enable wheelchair commuters to roll onto a flat ramp at street level and be lifted to bus level, before the ramps fold back into position. Our client noted their bronze bearings were causing vibration that hindered the lifts from a smooth deployment. They needed to replace the poorly-designed bronze bearings to ensure a safe ride from sidewalk to bus.
