Pailton is a design lead company providing full technical and engineering support from concept, through design and test, to production.
We utilise the latest 3D modelling CAD systems and in-house test facilities to ensure full compatibility with customer requirements, including:
With 50 years’ experience of supplying parts for the most demanding of environments, we understand that every component in the steering system is safety-critical and our teams of experienced Design and Production engineers work closely with each customer to ensure we convert your requirements into a fully tested and approved production-ready part.
To support product quality we utilise internationally recognised external test houses in addition to our own well-equipped laboratory where we can measure a range of requirements including; load, cycles, tensile strength, fatigue, salt spray and accelerated durability.
Over the past 50 years we have developed numerous internal test specifications but we can also accommodate bespoke customer performance requirements, for example we created a 56-week environmental test programme where our Generation 3 Bevel Boxes operated, fully submerged in salt water and grit, to ensure they conformed with ingress procreation and standard IP66 and IP67.
Pailton Engineering has invested in a purpose-built staking rig, to ensure the highest level of accuracy in the universal joint staking process.
