A GLOBAL SOLUTION BUILT FOR COMFORT CHALLENGE EvoBus was looking to upgrade their current headrest designs to overcome limited vertical adjustment movability and to allow passengers to effortlessly position the headrest according to individual preferences. SOLUTION Southco implemented a solution featuring an asymmtric torque cartridge embedded hinge that enables the passenger to easily pull the headrest wings forward, yet still supports the full head weight. VALUE The new headrest design not only offers maximum passenger comfort but also requires zero maintenance or readjustment throughout its life cycle. COMPANY: EvoBus GmbH WEBSITE: INDUSTRY: Transportation - Bus and Coach In order to differentiate its premium bus seat offering, EvoBus, a leading German bus manufacturer and wholly owned subsidiary of Daimler AG, was seeking a solution that would allow the passenger to position the headrest according to their own individual preferences and have it remain firmly in place during use. This search for an innovative product solution led EvoBus to turn to Southco who implemented a solution using Southco's ST Torque Cartridge Embedded Hinge Series featuring an embedded constant torque hinge within a plastic overmoulded headrest.
