Continental Highlights Future of Mobility at Automechanika

Continental Highlights Future of Mobility

Continental is highlighting sustainability efforts this week at Automechanika.

At the Automechanika show this week in Frankfurt, Continental presented innovations for belt drive components aimed at protecting the climate and environment.

Continental believes climate protection and sustainability is an increasingly important success factor in the replacement parts business and for workshops. Continental has got on board with this trend and is presenting solutions at the Automechanika show (Sept. 13-17, Frankfurt/Main, booth A03 in the Forum next to the Festhalle) that respond to the challenges at hand. The business area Power Transmission Group will unveil a trio of innovations for drive belts and belt drive components, as well as additions to its range of products.

Highlights of the press event included:

Digital direct vehicle acceptance: The SINDRI app completes a comprehensive vehicle scan plus checklist in just a few minutes, making direct vehicle acceptance faster and more customer-​friendly.

Sustainable material for drive belts: Continental is converting the material mix for drive belts to more sustainable materials – we explain exactly what’s changing. Our prototype study also shows where more potential for sustainable materials and processes exists.

New particle analyzer: This is the first time that Continental has presented such a device in its product range. The analyzer’s high-​precision, efficient measurement and its Bluetooth data transmission function make it ideal for the new diesel exhaust gas measurement method, which comes into force next year.

Video hotline: Our new video hotline enables Continental experts to communicate face-​to-face with workshop technicians and help them to master challenges.
