ZF sees many advantages and possibilities of knowledge transfer across divisions, as almost all technologies from the automotive sector also can be used in trucks, buses and off-highway vehicles, according to Dr. Klaus Geißdörfer, EVP of the Industrial Technology Division.
VCMS II, the next generation of vehicle control and power modules from InPower, are fully programmable to provide maximum control, flexibility and value, whether part of a networked system or as stand-alone units.
The two-piece magnetic Hall-effect variable gap sensor from PIHER Sensors and Controls S.A. maintains stable electrical output and specified linearity on mobile shafts, despite radial and axial movement.
Increasingly stringent anti-idling laws continue to exert pressure on the off-highway industry to minimize the release of CO2 emissions and diesel particulate matter into the environment, notes Webasto's Don Kanneth.
Aerospace technologies provide solutions that help off-highway manufacturers to meet increasing heat-management requirements that stem from stricter emissions standards, explains Bruce Kaplan of Thermal Structures.
OEMs can satisfy both increasing emissions requirements and keeping up with new product innovations by focusing their attention on the areas of the equipment that impact the operator experience on a larger scale, says Southco's Bob Straka.
