Workhorse has released the W-15 E-REV pickup truck dedicated to the light-duty fleet truck market. To meet customers needs nationwide, Workhorse partnered with Ryder System for distribution and service.
Designed to meet the future needs of global markets, the 13.6-L engine from John Deere Power Systems offers customers increased efficiency, installation flexibility and power in a more compact package.
Federal-Mogul Powertrain’s (Southfield, MI) new process for ranking the corrosion resistance of diesel cylinder liner materials will enable it to supply even more durable components for the most challenging applications.
The newly redesigned 2-pole DEUTSCH connector (MDC06-2S) from Murrelektronik, Inc. is an extremely compact connector—18 mm (0.71 in) long when plugged in—making it easier than ever to make connections, even in confined spaces.
The off-highway sector includes many niche markets, for which diesel power historically has been the preferred choice—but a combination of factors is leading some to switch to natural gas-fueled engines, requiring spark ignition, notes Federal-Mogul Powertrain's CTO, Gian Maria Olivetti.
Many autonomous driving plans call for deploying a handful of solid state Lidar sensors on each vehicle, but the Lidar modules used on today’s prototype vehicles are all mechanical systems with moving parts. That’s prompted huge interest in solid-state Lidar, with OEMs and suppliers racing to invest in non-mechanical technologies.
OEMs can’t wait until the end of the process to think about how the machine and engine will be supported in the field. For attentive suppliers, that means innovations in modern diesel engines cannot be restricted just to combustion and emissions technologies any longer, says Perkins' Oliver Lythgoe.
