Southco Launches A Unique Complete Rotary Latch System For Increased Security & Safety within The Off-Highway Industry

Southco Launches A Unique Complete Rotary Latch System For Increased Security & Safety within The Off-Highway Industry
Southco has developed a ‘complete’ rotary latch system solution - from actuation to latching - to meet the growing demands of the off-highway sector for increased security of machinery and construction equipment and enhanced safety of operators. The growing importance of driver safety and comfort and the overall security of construction vehicles are the most common areas of concern for off-highway equipment operators and constant areas for improvement for equipment manufacturers.
