Auto components India - - CONTENTS -

WABCO, has en­tered into a new long-term agree­ment to sup­ply au­to­mated man­ual trans­mis­sion (AMT) valve tech­nol­ogy for a ma­jor global man­u­fac­turer of trucks and buses, which is head­quar­tered in Europe.

In a new tech­no­log­i­cal de­vel­op­ment for heavy-duty trans­mis­sions, WABCO will sup­ply its lat­est gen­er­a­tion of tai­lored AMT valves. WABCO will sup­port fu­ture se­ries pro­duc­tion as the sole sup­plier, pri­mar­ily in Europe and South Amer­ica. Fur­ther dif­fer­en­ti­ated by its global in­fra­struc­ture, WABCO pro­vides pro­duc­tion and sup­ply chain ca­pa­bil­i­ties that are close to the sites where this ma­jor cus­tomer plans to pro­duce new gear­box and trans­mis­sions.

WABCO’s in­no­va­tive AMT tech­nol­ogy en­ables ef­fi­cient, cost-ef­fec­tive au­to­matic shift of gears and con­trols clutch ac­tu­a­tion for com­mer­cial ve­hi­cles. In ad­di­tion, this ad­vance­ment can im­prove fuel econ­omy through op­ti­mized gear shift­ing. WABCO AMT so­lu­tions also dif­fer­en­ti­ate through re­duced com­po­nent weight, more com­pact de­sign and sim­pli­fied as­sem­bly pro­cesses, re­sult­ing in lower man­u­fac­tur­ing and in­stal­la­tion costs.

“This sig­nif­i­cant sup­ply agree­ment rep­re­sents new in­cre­men­tal busi­ness for WABCO and re­flects the value our cus­tomers glob­ally place on AMT. WABCO’s tech­nol­ogy lead­er­ship in AMT of­fers mul­ti­ple ben­e­fits to our clients, in­clud­ing a re­duc­tion in fuel costs and in­creased safety and driver com­fort,” Jorge So­lis, WABCO Pres­i­dent, Truck, Bus and Car Orig­i­nal Equip­ment Man­u­fac­tur­ers Divi­sion, said.

WABCO AMT so­lu­tions can en­able drivers to fo­cus their at­ten­tion on road and traf­fic con­di­tions, re­sult­ing in in­creased com­fort and safety.

With AMT, ve­hi­cle op­er­a­tors can re­duce me­chan­i­cal wear on gear­boxes, lower main­te­nance costs and de­crease ve­hi­cle down­time.
