Delphi Technologies showcases expertise for next-generation vehicles at this year’s Automechanika Birmingham
Delphi Technologies will exhibit its latest aftermarket solutions and new and improved packaging on its new-look stand - hall 18, stand U140.
The company, a sponsor of the Automechanika Garage of the Year Awards, will also present a technical seminar on hybrid and electric technology and provide on-vehicle pass-thru diagnostic demos.
WARWICK, UK, April 15, 2019 – At Automechanika Birmingham (June 4-6), Delphi Technologies will show how it’s helping distributors and garages prepare for servicing new vehicles with a range of innovative solutions, including the Excalibur GDi test bench, the latest addition to its GDi service program, and DS-Flash pass-thru tool. Visitors to the Big UK Garage Event will be able to see the company’s bold new packaging, and receive free hybrid and electric training and on-vehicle diagnostic demos from Delphi Technologies’ technical experts. As a sponsor of the Automechanika Garage of the Year, it will also present the Outstanding Achievement Award at a separate event on Wednesday June 5 at the National Motorcycle Museum.
Julian Goulding, UK Marketing Manager, Delphi Technologies Aftermarket says: “The growth of new vehicle technologies such as gasoline direct injection and powertrain electrification represents a significant opportunity for the aftermarket, but only for those with the right parts, tools and know-how. At this year’s Automechanika, we’ll be demonstrating how we’re helping garages service these increasingly complex, electronically controlled vehicles and take advantage of the high-value business that they generate.”
GDi service program
Delphi Technologies’ new GDi service program is just one example of how the company is using its deep understanding of the latest vehicle technologies to help its independent aftermarket customers. With OE parts, diagnostic tools, training, test and cleaning equipment, distributors and garages will be able to take advantage of one of the fastest growing areas of vehicle repair.
Latest diagnostic and test capability
The increasing electronic content will also require new diagnostic and test competencies. Visitors will be amongst the first to see its new Hartridge Excalibur GDi Master, enabling the testing of GDi and PFi systems in as little as five minutes, alongside its Sabre CRi Expert, an ultra-high-pressure Common Rail injector test machine. The company will also provide on-vehicle demonstrations of its DS Flash pass-thru device, offering dealer-level diagnostics.
Hybrid and electric vehicle seminar
Understanding the latest vehicle technologies is equally key, and as part of the Workshop Training Hub, Delphi Technologies will provide a technical talk (11h45 to 12h15, June 4 in the Technical Theatre), offering aftermarket professionals best practice advice on servicing hybrid and electric vehicles, and how with the support of an OE provider, they can capitalize on this growing market opportunity.
Enhancements to core aftermarket portfolio
Delphi Technologies will also demonstrate how its core aftermarket portfolio is providing technicians with high-quality service parts. New additions include a full-service solution for steering with all the parts needed for right, first-time fitment in the box, first-to-market brake pads, new OE ignition coils and significant new-to-range sensors including a new line of exhaust gas temperature and diesel exhaust pressure sensors.
Refreshed brand and premium packaging
The show will also provide a platform for the company to present its vibrant new aftermarket packaging to the UK market. Featuring the Delphi Technologies logo and colorways, the new packaging comes in both a wallpaper print and a retail design for products such as brakes, steering and ignition. A new design, using higher quality materials, will offer better protection during transit and storage, whilst optimizing space on the distributor’s shelf.
