Mahle Aftermarket: Supporting tomorrow’s vehicle professionals
Mahle Aftermarket is presenting its service and solutions expertise for digitalised workshops and a wide range of drive types at Automechanika Frankfurt this week. The company says the focus of its presence at the trade fair is efficient and intuitive solutions that save workshops time and money.
“The workshop of the future is connected. We already offer workshop professionals the products, services, and solutions they need to work efficiently and successfully now and in the future,” said Arnd Franz, member of the Mahle Group’s Management Board with responsibility for Automotive Sales and Application Engineering as well as for the Aftermarket business unit. “Whether it’s vehicle diagnostics, air conditioning service units, or calibration tools for driver assistance systems: the highlights of our workshop equipment range are mutually compatible and always automatically updated. This saves workshops time and – most of all – money, because they can use the solutions for many years.”
The new Mahle TechPRO diagnostic tool has been presented to the public for the first time in Frankfurt (Hall 9.0, D16/D36). Mahle says the solution is ready to use within just seven seconds, and as an open system it offers particular flexibility in terms of operating system.
Another world premiere is the patent-pending TechPRO ADAS solution: This tool allows workshops to adjust and calibrate driver assistance systems quickly and easily – using just a digital calibration panel. Mahle comments that its solution “saves time and money.” The tool is continuously updated online and expanded to cover more vehicles. With this solution, Mahle believes it is “setting new benchmarks in this promising product group.”
Mahle Aftermarket’s new generation of air conditioning service units rounds off its set of world premieres. The company says that with six new units each from the Mahle and Brain Bee brands, workshops benefit from significantly shorter service times, lower service costs, and an added measure of safety. And there is another advantage for workshop professionals: both the ADAS tool and A/C service units are compatible with TechPRO.
The right solution for every type of drive
Mahle states that it is also bursting with innovation when it comes to spare parts in original quality. “Mahle is committed to shaping the mobility of the future,” explained Franz. “We are therefore pursuing a dual strategy in terms of drive types: continuing to optimise the combustion engine while also working on making e-mobility more widespread.” At Stand A11/A20 in Hall 3.0, Mahle will therefore present control and power electronics products as well as the Mahle Group’s new range of thermal management solutions that will be available from Mahle Aftermarket as of 2020. “Now and in the future, thermal management will be strategically important for us. This is not only true in the OE segment but also in the aftermarket, regardless of the type of drive,” stated Franz. “So being able to offer the full range of OE expertise for engine cooling and air conditioning to our aftermarket customers from 2020 will be a milestone for Mahle.”
