The Manufacturing Process, for an Electric Golf Buggy
Golf Buggy Engineering
You have probably heard through friends or other golf buggy owners, the do’s and dont’s of owning a golf buggy.
EMG golf buggies have seen and heard and tested it all, we know what makes an electric golf buggy tick, so to help you make it through every game we have built a buggy stronger, more reliable and practical than anyone else.
We are not here to make a quick buck, we are here to design and manufacturer a golf buggy that will last and satisfy our customers for many years, so the following imformation is of our quality golf buggies and components v the rest of the buggies supplied throughout Australia and the rest of the world.
1. Golf Buggy Frame Material
EMG chooses to use aircraft quality Australian Made Ullrich Aluminium Newcastle.
- Aluminium has excellent strength qualities.
- Overall, weight is kept to a minimum.
- Aluminium does not rust therefore if sand or water enters any of the structural components no deterioration will occur, guaranteeing product longevity.
2. Golf Buggy Frame Strength
To achieve the strength needed for our golf buggy the Chassis of our buggy has to be able to complete all courses day in day out and not break through fatigue like so many other poorly designed but fancy looking electric golf buggies.
EGB assesed the best aluminium material type and strength, then looked into how much bracing you need throughout our structure, so we could compliment our world class tig welding.
The EMG chassis is a product of extensive testing that is carried out both on and off the golf course.
Examples of our off course testing;
- repetitive motions such as moving up and down stairs simulating steps and gutters
- Rough surfaces found in and around golf courses.
The EMG Australian designed and construted frame has the fundamental principals of load bearing directions in mind.
Extreme loads that a motorised golf buggy experiences, is when the user pulls backward and down on the top t-handle lifting the front wheel off the ground.
The lower frame or “chassis” that is contact with the axle housing, has to tolerate the weight of several items at once, the golf bag (up to 20 kilograms) battery (10 kilograms) and motor/gearbox assembly.
The EGB design ensures that all loading pressures from this common movement are evenly distributed throughout the entire chassis via structural plates that embrace the axle housing, sump and main frame, rather than the handle being welded to the axle housing alone.
Most manufacturers have assistance bracing from the handle to the chassis, due to undersized tubing they need extra help to stop the handle from folding under weight from the bag and the pressure from turning the buggy from left to right and to get over objects such as gutters etc and they also spoil the look of a golf buggy.
Other manufacturers choose not to brace at all, which inevitably leads to the axle housing fracturing away from the chassis.
3. Golf Buggy Welding
The welding of any component is very important whether it is a golf buggy, lawn mower or competition racing car.
The method that EGB uses is “TIG” welding, a world class form of welding used on competition vehicles, including Formula 1, V8 supercars WRC rally cars all over the world.
Many factors work together with “TIG” welding as it is a precise temperature controlled process. Aluminium has to be at the right temperature before the filler rod can be added ensuring that penetration of both components has taken place.
Once the welding process is completed on components our buggies, no further preparation of the welds is needed (ie grinding smooth for a finished look hence lose of material and strength) before being sent off to the final phases of production.
Other welding processes are suited mostly to fast production of components, this is usually achieved using “MIG” welding, which is a good welding process, but can often have inconsistent penetration, therefore is not suited to intricate component welding that is found in our golf buggies. Imported buggies are a classic example of fast production welding and inferior metals are used, the result is an old cliché “you get what you pay for.”
4. Golf Buggy Drive Assembly
A to C explains the difference between 3 types of gearbox available and why EGB chose a worm – helical combination, taking the strength of a worm and efficiency of the helical.
A. EGB Unique Gearbox
EGB is aware of the benefits and failures of both worm drive and helical configured gearboxes.
Our solution has been to take advantage of the strong points of the worm and helical.
EGB opted for a worm – helical combination, taking the strength of a worm and efficiency of the helical. The EMG gearbox has only a pinion gear and main gear, this lends itself directly to be able to achieve the maximum diameter main gear with a massive 4mm tooth depth.
This depth is only comparable to those found in your motor vehicle.
EGB is extremely confident with the design and a 2 year warranty is provided.
B. Helical Gearbox
The helical configured gearbox primarily used in motor vehicles. This gearbox when configured correctly has only 1 tooth in mesh and is very efficient with minimal drag.
The problem that manufacturers of motorised golf buggies have is restrictive size gearbox housings.
Configurations using up to 4 gears to acquire final drive ratios have to be used which in turn eliminates all efficiencies due to the fact 4 teeth are in mesh.
Manufactures are forced to use small diameter plastic gears with delicate .08 of millimetre fine-pitched teeth, which often fail through normal wear and tear.
C. Worm Drive Gearbox
The worm drive, designed primarily for use in heavy engineering, was initially conceived in the 1800’s. The main problem associated with this gearbox is drag or friction.
A worm drive gearbox has 3 teeth in mesh at any one time, which in turn causes excessive drag, therefore the motor has to work harder to compensate.
A motor working harder than necessary causes increased strain on the battery, which in turn leads directly to much shorter battery life and less power to make that final tee off.
5. Golf Buggy Wheels
EGB 5 spoke injection rear wheel with rubber overlay, designed for strength and durabilty for rough courses. The spokes are a + design to give extra strengh from forward and sideways motions and bumps that occur on fairways and paths in between.
The wheels are produced from a 2 part process. Bearing hub area(Wheel Centre) and spokes are moulded in the same process for strength. Once this procedure is complete the wheels are put through a process which is manual.
The injection moulding operator puts each individual injected carcaus into the machine for the rubber to be injected to the outside. This leaves no consumable plastic or rubber sleeves to replace, or possibility of delamination like a worn out car tyre.
7. Golf Buggy Batteries
EGB use a standard 24amp/hr full deep cycle battery. The 24amp/hr battery supplied is for the golfer that plays 1-2 days a month playing 9- 18 holes.(6 months Warranty)
EGB have an optional upgrade to a 24 – 28amp/h Sonnenschein Gel battery at a small additional cost.
Sonnenschein are the world leaders in Gel battery technology and it also helps our buggy travel further than your standard 18 holes on hilly courses.(12 months Warranty)
Testing has brought about results such as on very hilly golf courses the EGB had ample battery power still in reserve, which allows the buggy to continue well past 18 holes.
Why Electric Golf Carts?
The inevitability of golf carts in a golf course has made the manufacturers to think about inventing new and sophisticated golf carts that meets every golfer’s demands during the play. Carrying the accessories and walking round the course playing every hole makes the golfer lose stamina mentally and physically. To those golfers suffering from knee and hip problems really is a tiring job. Here comes the significance of golf carts.
There are mainly two kinds of electric golf carts – electric golf cart and remote control electric golf carts.
In the electric golf cart the golfer controls the movements manually by walking behind and pressing the speed control buttons. But in remote control electric golf cart the golfer start or stop, increases or decreases the speed using a small handset.
The remote control electric golf carts are lightly framed and can be moved to all four directions using the control pad.
The folding design makes the cart more comfortable hence can be easily collapsed and rebuilt. This feature enhance the transporting of carts to and fro, and can be easily stored anywhere even in car’s trunk.
Some models have a programmed distance control button that can receive signals up to 120 yards. The cart stops automatically if it doesn’t get any signals from golfer for 25 seconds. Also emergency stop and reverse functions are possible.
As it runs on a high power engine and battery, it is non pollutant and runs smooth and noiselessly.
Other features include strong and sturdy wheel alignments that give excellent traction on any terrains. Also score card holders, bag and cup holders, and lot more features can be added in on demand.
Batteries are highly powered, once charged it will last long throughout the entire play. Some models have indicators that show the battery charge levels. Even if battery runs out of charge, these carts can be pushed or pulled along the golf course easily.
Normally, the remote control electric golf cart’s battery lasts for minimum 27 or 36 holes of golf course on full charge.
For the senior golfers suffering from physical and mobility disorders, the remote control electric golf cart is really a blessing to resume to their golf course. They need not push or pull the cart along the course, instead using a remote control they can easily transport the golf accessories and completely enjoy the game.
