AVL DiTEST received 8 Innovation Awards and presented various new products
Automechanika, the international meeting place for automotive aftersales, is definitely back. 78,000 visitors from 175 countries came to the leading industry platform in Frankfurt to experience products from workshops, industry and trade live. At its appearance, AVL DiTEST focused on the two main areas: e-mobility and emission testing. As part of the desired Innovation Awards, all 8 submissions from AVL DiTEST received awards.
8 Innovation Awards
Every year, Automechanika honors pioneering innovations in the industry. This year, the expert jury was spoiled for choice more than ever and had to select the most innovative products and solutions from a record number of 133 applications in 9 categories. AVL DiTEST submitted 8 applications this year and was awarded the desired Innovation Awards for all the products - 3x as a finalist and 5x as a nominee. The topics submitted were particularly diverse and ranged from electromobility to diagnostic applications and services. AVL DiTEST is thus once again demonstrating its innovative strength, which is well known in the industry.
Well prepared for the future with e-mobility
The technological change in the automotive industry is in full swing. The complexity and diversity of electric and hybrid vehicles in particular are increasing significantly. As a result, the demand on the associated tools is also increasing. Based on more than 15 years of intensive research in the field of e-mobility, AVL DiTEST develops tools for the entire repair process of traction batteries and presented currently available test tools at the Automechanika. The range included products for independent workshops and testing organizations as well as tailor-made solutions that were developed in close cooperation with vehicle manufacturers. Interested visitors could test the measuring and diagnostic devices live on a demo battery module.
Reliable particle counting for new legislation
The second main topic of AVL DiTEST at Automechanika was how to measure the number of particles in diesel vehicles. The basis for this is the new, stricter AU legislation for measuring particles during the recurring technical inspection, which will be mandatory in Germany from January 1st, 2023. AVL DiTEST experts dealt intensively with the different measuring methods at an early stage and developed the AVL DiTEST Counter - a device for precise particle counting that can be used continuously throughout the day. This device is based on the diffusion charging principle and is characterized by rapid measurement availability without equipment. Due to the particularly short measurement procedure, the Counter ensures an efficient measurement process and is therefore ideally suited for use in test centers and workshops.
