Schaeffler to star at Automechanika in Birmingham

Schaeffler (UK) Ltd is inviting members of its online workshop resource portal ‘REPXPERT’ to register for a free VIP Experience at Automechanika UK on June 6-8, which will include a VIP entry ticket, hospitality on the company’s stand, plus a goody-bag.

The REPXPERT VIP Experience is sure to prove popular so account holders are urged to log-in and register as soon as possible to guarantee their ticket.

If you are not yet a REPXPERT member, now is the perfect time to register at as Schaeffler will once again be taking centre-stage at Automechanika UK with a wide range of attractions.

Malcolm Short, Technical Services Manager for Schaeffler Automotive Aftermarket in the UK, said: “This is the second year we will be exhibiting at Automechanika UK and once again we have worked hard on putting together a wide range of attractions that highlight our leading position at the heart of the automotive aftermarket and also emphasises our original equipment (OE) pedigree.”

The global technology giant will be displaying a vast array of innovative technology on stand 19A50 at the show which is being held at the NEC Birmingham.

The renowned Schaeffler REPXPERT technical team will be giving practical hands-on fitting advice and hints and tips on the OE LuK clutch, INA tensioner and FAG wheel bearing brands as well as information on how the company works closely with the World’s leading vehicle manufacturers (VMs).

The theme this year is ‘Mobility for Tomorrow’ which showcases innovative Schaeffler OE technology including E-Wheel drive. This fully-electric system includes motors integrated into the wheel hub to create space saving, comfort and economy benefits.

Reinforcing the theme of future mobility, Schaeffler will also be showing and explaining its E-ARC (Electromechanical Active Roll) stabiliser which helps to balance cars on roads and around corners.

The system works where the car remains flat and balanced when it would normally dip to one side and the innovative design can be found in many cars produced by VMs who include BMW, Porsche, Land Rover and Audi.

The third main exhibit on the stand will focus on Thermal Management. Schaeffler’s thermal management module uses sensor-controlled rotary slide valves to precisely regulate the temperature balance in the vehicle’s drive train and allows the ideal temperature window for the engine and the transmission to be reached rapidly. This has an effect on both the energy efficiency and the life of the drive train’s components.

As well as these aspects, Schaeffler will have its REPXPERT team on-hand to answer any questions/queries that may arise.

REPXPERT now has an official Facebook account. on Facebook provides quick and easy access to vehicle manufacturer instructions and specifications as well as OE know-how from Schaeffler experts, supplying everything workshops need to carry out a professional repair at the click of a button.
