ZF Aftermarket will welcome customers on the web platform ‘ZF Aftermarket Live’ at Automechanika Frankfurt, September 14-16.
During the three-day online event, customers and workshop partners gain insight into the latest company updates and industry highlights.
Visitors can engage in networking opportunities and training offerings.
“With our format ‘ZF Aftermarket Live’ we will be able to not only share our vision for a green, sustainable and data-fueled aftermarket of tomorrow. But discuss the next generation of mobility with our partners in an interactive way. Visitors will have access to in-depth information about our latest: products, services and technologies, designed to support the transformation towards electrified, autonomous and connected vehicles;” says Philippe Colpron, Head of ZF Aftermarket.
“We want to take this opportunity to share expert know-how, exchange ideas with our aftermarket and fleet customers, and provide value-add services to our customer’s operations.”
Via ‘ZF Aftermarket Live’ the automotive supplier will present the latest highlights of its ‘Next Generation Aftermarket’ strategy featuring a live round-table discussion, keynote speeches and interactive training sessions.
The lead topics will focus on: Offerings for electric and autonomous vehicles, as well as an expanded product portfolio under its aftermarket brands: ZF, Lemförder, Sachs, TRW and Wabco and digital fleet solutions such as Transics.
Plus significantly expanded offering for the commercial vehicle market following the acquisition of automotive supplier Wabco.
New mobility services
Other highlights include spare parts and diagnostic solutions and autonomous vehicles for local public transport; the so-called ‘people movers’.
These vehicles contain cutting-edge ZF components and offer a tangible glimpse of the services of the future.
With their permanent digital networking, electric drive, and electronic monitoring of all assemblies, they serve as a technological blueprint for fully driverless vehicle services of the future.
The ZF Aftermarket Live program
Dr. Holger Hättich, Head of Customer & Strategy, ZF Aftermarket, comments on the concept of ZF Aftermarket Live: “Our digital presence represents much more than a virtual trade show booth: With ZF Aftermarket Live, we are launching a new, channel for digital knowledge transfer and networking within the global automotive aftermarket.”
The first show day will focus on the latest products and services for the passenger car market—e-mobility, autonomous driving and how the spare parts market could be made more sustainable.
Examples include ZF products i.e. brake pads which are produced following a carbon-neutral process and remanufactured replacement parts.
The next day, ZF will focus on the commercial vehicle market.
Fleet operators and managers will learn about ZF’s latest monitoring, networking and telematics solutions that enable better fleet control, remote diagnostics and predictive maintenance.
Under the motto “Best of Automechanika”, ZF Aftermarket Live will specifically address automotive workshops on the third day.
They can attend online training courses on the topics of high-voltage technology basics, retrofitting the Tailguard reversing assistance system for commercial vehicles, and electric power steering for passenger cars, for which participants will receive a certificate.
In addition, the ZF [pro]Points bonus program offers competitions and games in which participants can win vouchers for ZF workshop concepts and other prizes such as a Sachs e-bike.
