Scha­ef­fler a hit with dis­cov­er­ers

Motor Equipment News - - NEWS -

Scha­ef­fler re­ported very pos­i­tive re­sults from Au­tomechanika 2016. The Au­to­mo­tive Af­ter­mar­ket busi­ness di­vi­sion of the Scha­ef­fler Group ex­hib­ited at the world’s largest lead­ing trade fair for au­to­mo­tive spare parts un­der the motto “dis­cover more.”

On nearly 1,200 sq.m of stand space, the com­pany gave in­sights – some of them in vir­tual re­al­ity – into its prod­ucts for pas­sen­ger cars, com­mer­cial ve­hi­cles, and trac­tors, pre­sented the re­pair so­lu­tions that go with them and demon­strated its com­pre­hen­sive ser­vice pack­age for garages.

And not only that, Scha­ef­fler used this year’s Au­tomechanika to cel­e­brate its 40th an­niver­sary in the Au­to­mo­tive Af­ter­mar­ket with cus­tomers, part­ners, and em­ploy­ees.

A ma­jor at­trac­tion at the stand proved to be the jour­ney through Scha­ef­fler’s high­light prod­ucts in vir­tual re­al­ity that al­lowed vis­i­tors to ex­pe­ri­ence them first-hand. In a sim­u­lated re­pair garage, vis­i­tors could re­place a dry dou­ble clutch us­ing the LuK RepSet 2CT re­pair so­lu­tion all by them­selves, and steer a minia­ture space­ship through the in­sides of a pas­sen­ger car en­gine to learn more about INA en­gine ex­per­tise.

Cel­e­brat­ing its premier at the Au­tomechanika was the FAG SmartSet, which was de­vel­oped ex­clu­sively for the Af­ter­mar­ket. All of the com­po­nents of this ready-to-in­stall re­pair so­lu­tion for com­mer­cial ve­hi­cle wheel bear­ings could be ex­pe­ri­enced vir­tu­ally as well.

Also in fo­cus at the trade fair ex­hi­bi­tion was the ser­vice brand Repx­pert, whose added value for garages was demon­strated at six work­benches. Tailor-made to vis­i­tors’ re­quests, Scha­ef­fler Repx­perts not only showed prac­ti­cal re­pair pre­sen­ta­tions, they also ex­plained the com­pre­hen­sive port­fo­lio di­rectly at the stand us­ing the roughly 50 ex­hibits, along the way giv­ing a lot of use­ful tips for as­sem­bly and dis­as­sem­bly.

The stand at­tracted vis­i­tors from all over the world, in­clud­ing Aus­tralia, New Zealand and New Cale­do­nia who all en­joyed the wealth of in­for­ma­tion on the stand and its fea­tures. A high­light for these vis­i­tors was a ride in Scha­ef­fler’s E-Wheel drive con­cept car.

“This year’s Au­tomechanika was a suc­cess in many re­spects,” said Dan Fouracres, sales man­ager Scha­ef­fler Aus­tralia. “We were able to im­press our cus­tomers on the ex­tent of Scha­ef­fler’s ex­per­tise and ser­vices. It also pro­vided a view into the fu­ture for our Aus­tralasian af­ter­mar­ket cus­tomers.”

“As mo­bil­ity for the fu­ture is get­ting in­creas­ingly com­plex, it was im­por­tant for us to present cur­rent and fu­ture top­ics in a way that was un­der­stand­able, in­for­ma­tive and com­pe­tent,” said Michael Söd­ing, pres­i­dent, Scha­ef­fler Au­to­mo­tive Af­ter­mar­ket.

“Dis­trib­u­tors and garages re­ceived de­tailed in­for­ma­tion about how they can profit from our prod­ucts and re­pair so­lu­tions.” Michael Söd­ing then con­cluded, “We are also elated with the over­whelm­ingly pos­i­tive feed­back and the best wishes on our 40th An­niver­sary in the Au­to­mo­tive Af­ter­mar­ket.”
