Driven by Efficiency”: Voith presents award-winning drive and braking systems for buses, trucks and coaches at COMVEX 2016
From May 21 to 24, 2016 Voith will present its wear-free retarders, fuel efficient air compressors, and the epitome of the modern economical automatic transmission – DIWA.6 – at the 5th Commercial Vehicles, Bus and Components Expo (COMVEX) in Istanbul Tuyap Exhibition Center. Voith drive and braking systems will be showcased in Hall 1240/A, booth 12.
Voith Aquatarder SWR – winner of European Transport Sustainability Award and ECW Innovation Label Award is the world’s first secondary retarder that uses water for braking. It is eco-friendly with 80% less brake dust emissions, low weight, compact design – 50% less installation space than its predecessor and 35kg lighter. Voith Aquatarder SWR does not require oil or coolant changes as it uses the engine’s own coolant as its operating medium, and therefore is completely maintenance free.
DIWA.6: The Best Choice for City and Long-Distance Buses
As Turkey continues to adopt European emission limits – now EURO 6 standard is mandatory for all new vehicles in Turkey registered from 1st January 2016 – the demand for eco-friendly and fuel-efficient vehicles continues to rise as well.
The new DIWA.6 automatic transmission is the response for even the strictest emission requirements.
Over 200,000 buses worldwide, 3,500 of them in Turkey, drive with DIWA transmissions from Voith. Compared with its predecessor model, the DIWA.6 can save almost another five percent fuel thanks to its combined automatic shift into neutral (ANS) function with an intelligent start-up management: It prevents starting against the active service brake, the transmission stays in neutral for longer and starting on level routes is more comfortable. Low fuel consumption, low noise and CO2 emissions, up to 50% fewer gear shifts compared to other transmissions and higher driving comfort convinced bus operators around the world to choose DIWA transmissions.
Voith Retarder 123+ braking safely, economically and comfortably
Voith Retarder – a synonym for wear-free continuous braking in trucks and buses. It provides maximum safety and high braking performance at any speed range.
Numerous additional advantages, such as low maintenance, reduction of vehicles operating cost, comfort driving and low dust, low noise and CO2 emissions make it a safe and high-performance endurance braking system.
Voith Retarder Clutch VIAB – Maximum Benefit without Compromise
Powerful start-up and safe braking, maneuvering, standstill, creep speed or driving with loads up to 250 tons – Voith Retarder Clutch VIAB offers maximum benefit without compromise.
It is a completely new wear-free start-up and braking system with a fill-regulated, hydrodynamic fluid coupling as the main component. The VIAB combines the functions “hydrodynamic starting” and “hydrodynamic braking” into one system.
High comfort, high availability, one VIAB model suits various engine versions.
Air Compressors from Voith – energy efficient on all roads
Voith air compressors shown on the exhibition stand are also suitable for the new EURO-6 engines. Produced with aluminum lightweight design, the two-stage compressors are a series feature of Daimler, MAN and Volvo coaches. Voith air compressors provide extended duty cycles up to 85%, low emission operation, allow higher pressure level in excess of 15 bar and save up to 1 liter of diesel per 100 kilometers.
