MAHLE Aftermarket presents solutions for the mobility of tomorrow at Automechanika 2018
- Reliable solutions for vehicles with internal combustion engines or electric drives - World premieres for the workshop equipment sector - BRAIN BEE acquisition completed
Stuttgart, August 6, 2018 - At this year's Automechanika in Frankfurt/Germany from September 11 to 15, 2018, MAHLE Aftermarket will present innovative products and solutions that help workshops to be successful. Visitors can discover the new products and brand at two stands (Hall 3.0, Stand A11/A20 and Hall 9.0, Stand D16/D36) for spare parts and workshop equipment.
"Workshops throughout the world expect comprehensive expertise from us in terms of solutions and service," explains Olaf Henning, Head of the Aftermarket business unit at MAHLE. "We offer them training, repair and maintenance information, innovative workshop equipment, and spare parts in original equipment quality. Our presence at Automechanika shows that our products and solutions complement each other perfectly and are geared toward the mobility of tomorrow."
The MAHLE Group's technological strategy is to continue optimizing combustion engines while also driving e-mobility forward. This dual approach is also reflected in the MAHLE Aftermarket range: MAHLE Aftermarket's presence at Automechanika in Frankfurt will center on products for vehicles with combustion engines as well as new control and power electronics products. In the future, MAHLE Aftermarket will focus more strongly on products for steering and power electronics to offer its customers an even broader power spectrum. "At Automechanika, we'll be revealing our concrete plans for this sector," said Olaf Henning. "Our visitors have a great deal to look forward to."
At the stand in Hall 3, visitors can also find out about the perceptible protection the MAHLE CareMetix® cabin air filter provides against outdoor odors. With five different filter layers, CareMetix® protects passengers from a variety of respiratory complaints, especially from nitrogen dioxide pollution.
Efficient vehicle diagnostics from MAHLE
MAHLE Aftermarket will be presenting several world premieres in the area of workshop equipment. One of the highlights is the new diagnostic tool from MAHLE. TechPRO® is an easy-to-use, highly efficient unit for vehicle diagnostics, available for workshops in Europe. At the time of its market launch in the first quarter of 2019, the new unit will already cover almost 90 percent of all passenger cars in Europe. A new generation of A/C service units with impressive ease of maintenance, intuitive operation, and connectivity options will be presented for the first time at Automechanika. The new product range of A/C service, fluid management and diagnostic solutions which has been greatly expanded after the integration of workshop equipment specialist BRAIN BEE will also be making its debut at the MAHLE stand in Hall 9.0, Stand D16/D36.
