Knorr-Bremse TruckServices recently added turbochargers to its product portfolio
Knorr-Bremse, company operating in the field of braking systems and supplier of other rail and commercial vehicle subsystems, is expanding its product portfolio for the aftermarket. From January of this year, customers can order turbochargers for vehicles from all the major OEM brands.
Peter Laier, member of the executive board of Knorr-Bremse and responsible for the commercial vehicle systems division, said: «Engine air management is key to ensuring low real-world driving emissions for diesel vehicles in long-distance operation. Our exhaust valves offer precision control of engine air circulation and reflect Knorr-Bremse’s extensive experience in this field. Now, by expanding our aftermarket portfolio to include turbochargers, we are taking this expertise a logical step further».
Turbochargers harness the exhaust energy to force compressed outside air into the combustion chamber. This boosts the engine output and makes for cleaner combustion.
Together with turbochargers comes an extensive service
Knorr-Bremse is offering turbochargers from the renowned OEMs on the market. They will come within the Knorr-Bremse packaging and in most cases with the corresponding mounting kit. The turbochargers also have the Knorr-Bremse service concept to cover their back, providing an overall package for customers.
Knorr-Bremse’s logistics network will be in charge of the management of the supply. While a returns system for used turbochargers will be integrated into the existing core management program. Aftermarket services by TruckServices are available for all the products, including regularly updates of multilingual product documentation for turbochargers. Customer requirements will be in the hands of the local sales teams and of the sales support and technical hotline. Specific training programs for turbochargers are already under development.
EconX turbochargers for repairs
In line with the Knorr-Bremse TruckServices Lifetime Efficiency principle, almost all turbochargers will also be available as remanufactured EconX products. This will allow Knorr-Bremse to offer sustainable, cost-efficient repair solutions also for older vehicles.
