Ziv-Av designs bus structure based on Mercedes Automotive System for Merkavim
Merkavim an Israeli bus company needed a new design for a bus structure based on the automotive system of Mercedes City Bus 405.
Merkavim approached Ziv-Av to design a bus structure that would be highly cost-effective and feature the glued windows –a first in Israel.
Ziv-Av engineers designed a robust, cost-effective design, meeting all of the customer’s requirements.
While the automotive system used was of Mercedes 405, Ziv-Av designed all else including a glued-windows design –a new concept at the time in Israel – adding robustness to the structure.
Ziv-Av was able to provide a design which was twice as robust than the existing one.
With Ziv-Av’s cost-effective design, the number of parts and weight was reduced by half, while achieving twice as robust construction.
With glued windows, a much better sealing, a more elegant design was achieved, a feat that was one of a kind in Israel.
Ziv-Av’s design made it possible to reduce structural elements by 50% – saving production time and cost by 50%.
