Sears Seating, a manufacturer of off-road and over-the-road truck and tractor seating, has introduced the next generation of truck suspension seating with the Atlas II ActiveVRS Suspension Seat. The seat system uses Magneto-Rheological (MR) fluid technology to provide an advanced magnetic ride.
A position sensor reads the suspension travel 750 times per second, and depending on damping needs, instantaneously increases or decreases the strength of the magnetic field to stiffen the damper and absorb shock. The result is significantly lower driver exposure to Whole Body Vibration (WBV) —up to 65% less exposure—which reduces fatigue and promotes driver health.
Sears Manufacturing Company is a privately held global corporation based in Davenport IA, with operations in North America, South America, Europe and Asia. Established in 1855, the company has built its reputation on innovation, product quality and reliability and is a leading supplier of suspension and non-suspension seating for the agriculture, construction, industrial and over-the-road vehicle markets worldwide.
