“Powered by your needs”: MAHLE at the 2016 Automechanika in Frankfurt
Stuttgart, August 2016 – Under the motto “Powered by your needs”, MAHLE Aftermarket is showcasing its latest products and services for repair shops and trade at Automechanika in Frankfurt from 13 to 17 September 2016. This time, MAHLE can be found at two locations: As in previous years, MAHLE is presenting itself as a solutions provider in Hall 3, at stands A11 and A20. The company is also exhibiting its innovative service and diagnostic tools at stand A69 in Hall 9.
“Powered by your needs” is characterized by customer and market requirements and allows the spare part and service specialist to showcase its entire range of solutions for repair shops and trade. Air conditioning compressors from MAHLE will be presented for the first time at the main stand in Hall 3 of the international trade fair. Numerous vehicle manufacturers have placed their trust in the group’s technology and are already using millions of MAHLE’s air conditioning compressors. As of 2017, they will be an integral part of the MAHLE Aftermarket product portfolio, providing the independent spare parts market and repair shops with greater access to MAHLE’s original equipment competence in the specialist field of vehicle air conditioning.
What’s more, at the main stand, MAHLE Aftermarket will be giving visitors an overview of its extensive product portfolio for trucks and passenger cars. “Applications for commercial vehicles, special oil filters for turbocharged engines, and cylinder liners: the MAHLE Aftermarket product range now covers a wide spectrum and is continuously being expanded in line with market requirements. It is no coincidence that our products can be found in around 50,000 different engines and over 340,000 vehicle models from all vehicle manufacturers worldwide”, explains Olaf Henning, Member of the Management Committee and Managing Director of MAHLE Aftermarket GmbH. “Spurred on by the needs of both customers and the international markets, not to mention the constantly changing technical requirements, MAHLE Aftermarket has evolved from a supplier of classic components into a future-oriented solutions provider. Our comprehensive, global range of technical services completes the portfolio.”
MAHLE Aftermarket is also expecting a visit from the tuning world on 13 and 14 September: video blogger Jean-Pierre Kraemer—aka JP—will present one of his latest tuning projects at the MAHLE stand in Hall 3.
Solutions covering all aspects of diagnostics, air conditioning, and fluid management
This year, the trade fair will have a special focus in Halls 8 and 9: exhibitors will be devoting more attention to the growing digitization of service processes. MAHLE Aftermarket GmbH will also be taking part for the first time, where it will present its newest product division MAHLE Service Solutions and the corresponding portfolio of services in Hall 9.
MAHLE Service Solutions specializes in the development, production, and distribution of services, tools, and repair shop equipment. On the basis of over 25 years of expertise and experience that has been accumulated from the three business divisions—Automobile Maintenance Devices and Repair Shop Equipment, Climate Management (MAHLE Behr), and Test and Diagnostic Systems (MAHLE Test Systems)—MAHLE Service Solutions offers advanced solutions such as A/C service units, fluid exchange systems, and test systems for both repair shops and vehicle manufacturers.
One of the highlights at the MAHLE stand in Hall 9 is the recovery-only unit. Using this innovative technology, contaminated refrigerants can be removed efficiently, economically, and safely from vehicle HVAC systems. This recovery-only unit has an impressive new safety concept, which also specifically protects the operator. This unit is a self-contained, lightweight, portable device that can be universally connected to all known A/C service units.
