Schaeffler promises unique experience at Automechanika


Global technology giant Schaeffler is promising visitors a unique and unforgettable experience on its stand at the forthcoming Automechanika show in Germany.

The company will combine innovation, information and interaction on its 1200 m2 stand at Frankfurt where 3D technology will let visitors experience first-hand the LuK RepSet 2CT, the new FAG SmartSET for commercial vehicles and INA engine expertise.

In line with this year’s ‘discover more’ theme, Schaeffler – which is celebrating its 40th anniversary in the automotive aftermarket – will demonstrate its technical excellence, intelligent automotive solutions and outstanding services during the exhibition which is being held on September 13-17.

Visitors to stand 1, Level 0 in the Forum, will experience a virtual journey through three focus topics. Using 3D glasses, they will steer a small spaceship through the interior of a car engine to learn even more about the current engine components and repair solutions offered by INA, for example.

Michael Söding, President of the Schaeffler Automotive Aftermarket Management Board, said: “This kind of presentation gives us the chance to make increasingly complex technology understandable. Reducing fuel consumption and CO2 emissions, while increasing driving comfort, is also a topic of growing importance to the automotive aftermarket today.

“At Automechanika, we will show distributors and garages how they can participate and profit from our innovation by using products and repair solutions from Schaeffler.”

Automechanika is featuring a special exhibition called ‘Tomorrow’s Service & Mobility’, in which Schaeffler will be involved by exhibiting its mobility solutions of the future.

The ABT Schaeffler Formula-E race car, along with innovative system solutions for original equipment (OE) manufacture – like the E-Clutch, the E-Wheel Drive and the Schaeffler Hybrid Module – will be part of this special exhibition.

Schaeffler’s INA brand is playing an important role in shaping the mobility of tomorrow. The INA portfolio includes cross system know-how and repair solutions for key engine systems – for timing drives, front-end auxiliary drives, valve trains and engine cooling.

Schaeffler celebrated the global OE launch of its dry double clutch system in 2008. The repair solution for this in the automotive aftermarket is the unique LuK RepSet 2CT, which delivers a quick and professional repair when used with the accompanying specially developed tool.

Schaeffler will also be presenting the FAG SmartSET for commercial vehicles, a new, easy-to-fit truck hub repair solution. Developed especially for the aftermarket, the FAG SmartSET can be used to repair all commercial vehicles, buses and trailer axles that use standard tapered roller bearings. Pre-lubricated, pre-assembled and installed with pre-positioned tapered roller bearings at the factory; this new complete solution makes a vital contribution to reducing operating costs by allowing for quick and efficient repairs.

As well as products and repair solutions in all vehicle segments, the stand will also highlight Schaeffler’s REPXPERT brand. Technical trainers will be delivering hands-on demonstrations explaining the repair process, working on different products at six workbenches. They will also refer to the REPXPERT online portal, highlighting how it can generate added value to workshop professionals during their daily work.
