press release

In the commercial sector, for transporters, heavy trucks, buses and trailers, reliability is essential. Every breakdown or unplanned repair leads to down­time and costs money. For this reason, Bosch is constantly expanding its product range and offers customers a comprehensive selection of diagnos­tics and workshop equipment for the repair and service of commercial vehicles as well as spare parts and services from a single source.

Diagnostics for Commercial Vehicles with KTS Truck
Technical systems in commercial vehicles are becoming ever more diverse and complex. Customers are more demanding and want an answer to their problems as quickly as possible. Bosch offers the KTS Truck control unit tester with the associated Esitronic Truck software package specifically for the needs of commercial vehicle workshops. This software contains data on over 90% of the transporters, trucks, buses and trailers currently avail­able on the European market. In addition to control unit diagnosis, the Esi­tronic Truck software features technical information such as circuit dia­grams, service and repair instructions, and system information, as well as spare parts catalogues.

Comprehensive Workshop Equipment for Commercial Vehicle Work­shops
In addition to control unit diagnostics, the Bosch program covers a wide range of workshop equipment, tailored to specific requirements. Bosch offers state-of-the-art test equipment for chassis analysis, emissions analy­sis, battery and A/C servicing. Using vehicle system analysis, components and systems can be systematically tested without having to be removed. The heavyweights on offer are lift platforms for transporters, tire balancing and assembly systems, and brake testing even for heavy trucks.

Diesel Components in Original Equipment Quality
Bosch supplies diesel systems as original equipment for all major commer­cial vehicle manufacturers. The range of spare parts, for current common rail and pump-nozzle systems as well as for classic diesel components, is also correspondingly comprehensive.

Nitrogen oxide emissions (NOx) from diesel motors must generally be re­duced to comply with the Euro 5 standard. Therefore Bosch has developed the Denoxtronic exhaust gas after-treatment system for original equipment. For the retrofitting of commercial vehicles, Bosch offers the Denoxtronic2 retrofit system, which reduces nitrogen oxide emissions by up to 90 percent. The retrofit solution also pays off from an economic point of view, as the De­noxtronic system reduces fuel consumption by up to 5 percent and commercial vehicles that comply with the Euro 5 standard also save two cents per kilometer on German freeway tolls.

Value Repairs with the Bosch eXchange Program
With its eXchange parts program, Bosch offers an alternative for the cur­rent value oriented repair of commercial vehicles, at around 30 percent less than the cost of a new part with the same two-year guarantee. Over 800 remanufactured products are available for diesel injection systems alone; even for modern high-pressure injection systems. Additionally around 350 types of remanufactured starters and alternators are on offer.

Durable Wearing Parts and Accessories for High Mileage
Bosch offers a broad range of spare parts and accessories for commercial vehicles. The parts available range from drive belts and batteries to horns, filters, bulbs, sensors, wipers and auxiliary lights. All Bosch commercial ve­hicle parts are designed to meet the specific requirements of commercial vehicle use.

One current program extension for commercial vehicles are high-perform­ance ribbed V-belts, which are made from modern types of synthetic rub­ber and high-tech cords that can withstand extreme stress. They are spe­cifically designed for economic use in heavy trucks and buses as well as for high engine performances.

Service Training and Hotline Support
In order to prepare associates in commercial vehicle workshops for the re­quirements of the latest vehicle technology, Bosch offers a wide range of service training courses in Europe, with special training courses for com­mercial vehicle technology, which are continually expanded. In addition, the Bosch technical hotline specialists provide support for workshops on any difficult technical questions.

Diesel Repairs with Bosch Diesel Experts
A network of professional diesel experts takes over service and repair of all diesel components on site. In the Bosch Diesel Centers and Bosch Diesel Ser­vices, Bosch expertise on diesel repairs is bundled. There are around 3,800 of these specialist centers across the globe, including 90 in Germany. All kinds of diesel systems are checked, serviced, repaired and configured by specially trained associates.
