Schaeffler to demo workshop of the future at Automechanika Frankfurt


Date: 17-Aug-2018

Schaeffler is to look to the future with a range of innovative mixed and augmented reality exhibits at Automechanika Frankfurt in September.

To illustrate how technicians could be working in the future, a team of Schaeffler REPXPERTs will guide visitors through a LuK dual mass flywheel replacement and an INA timing chain overhaul – all carried out live on-stand and in real-time using interactive support.

Schaeffler will also unveil its latest ‘glass car’ concept, in line with the ‘tomorrow’s service and mobility’ theme at this year’s Automechanika.

The new exhibit highlights around 40 Schaeffler products and technologies, including the e-clutch, intelligent anti-roll control stabiliser, thermal management module and electric axle.

Mike ‘Rocky’ Rockenfeller’s Schaeffler-sponsored Audi Sport Team Phoenix RS5 DTM will also be on display outside Hall 0.

Visitors will be given a personal, step-by-step tour of how to maximise the benefits of REPXPERT in their workshop, whilst also developing their knowledge of LuK transmission, INA engine and FAG safety critical chassis systems.

Mark Dolloway, sales director at Schaeffler (UK) Ltd, said: “We want our visitors to engage and get involved with the exhibits, not just be spectators.

“Our motto is ‘get more – be part of it’, so we want visitors to get ‘more’ out of their Automechanika experience by getting stuck in.”
