Bosch to unveil latest innovations in diagnostics, spare parts and services at Automechanika 2010

Published September 14th, 2010 - 10:49 GMT

Robert Bosch GmbH has announced that it will unveil its latest range of vehicle maintenance solutions during its participation at this year's Automechanika, being held in Frankfurt am Main from September 14 to 19, reinforcing the company's reputation as the only "single-source supplier of diagnostic expertise and spare parts."

During the exhibition, Bosch will launch the new FSA 050 handheld tester, which has been developed specifically for working on high-voltage systems and communicates wirelessly with the basic series 7 FSA vehicle system analysis devices. Bosch will also unveil its new and efficient technical hotline — set up to help workshops that use the Bosch Esitronic workshop software pack­age. In the future, if the technical diagnostic process is proving difficult, the Bosch hotline experts will be able to use a remote program to access Bosch testers directly and perform vehicle diagnostics via the Internet.

"Bosch reaffirms its leadership in the global market with the launch of its new range of vehicle maintenance technology and services at Automechanika 2010. The latest innovations will likewise help consolidate our market share in the Middle East and reinforce our strategy of providing greater value for our clients in all aspects of vehicle maintenance," said Guido Gring, Sales Director of Automotive Aftermarket Division, Robert Bosch Middle East FZE.

Bosch will also in­troduce its new maintenance and repair program for commercial vehicles: the Bosch KTS Truck and KTS Truck 800 test­ers for commercial vehicle diagnostics. The control unit diagnostic tool KTS Truck and the associated Esitronic Truck software package have been de­veloped specifically to address the needs of commercial vehicle workshops and complete the comprehensive Bosch portfolio of spare parts and test­ing technology for vans, heavy-duty trucks, buses and trailers.

Bosch pro­duces two different versions of the new control unit diagnostic tester for commercial vehicles: A KTS module for use with a PC or laptop already present in the workshop, and the KTS 800 Truck complete solution with Diagnostic Control Unit (DCU) — a powerful tablet PC also recently devel­oped by Bosch.

The new EPS 708 diesel test bench for testing common-rail injection pumps and injectors produced by Bosch and other manufacturers will also be demonstrated for the first time at the trade fair. A warranty rating is also possible for Bosch components. An integrated cooling system, elec­tronic injection quantity measurement and a comprehensive self-diagnostic system help workshops to work with convenience and professionalism and are a simple way to get started with testing common-rail injectors using piezo technology.

Another innovation to be presented is the Denoxtronic 2 Retrofit, a special retrofit solution for diesel-drive vehicles that is unique in the aftermarket. The sys­tem can reduce NOx production by up to 90 per cent.

Bosch workshop concepts such as Bosch Car Service and Auto Crew will also be presented at Automechanika. A full-scale Bosch Car Service work­shop setup in the outdoor area in front of Hall 8 will demonstrate the minimum requirements that Bosch sets for future partner centres. This area will also be used to present the AutoCrew and AutoCrew Truck & Trailer workshop concepts and all that they entail. These concepts for pas­senger vehicle and commercial vehicle workshops are being presented as Bosch workshop brands for the first time at this year's Automechanika.
