MAHLE Aftermarket Expands Range Of Starter Motors, Alternators For Heavy-Duty Vehicles

In total, 11 new starter motors and nine new alternators will complement the existing range for commercial vehicles in Europe, Africa and the Near East.

By the end of 2018, MAHLE Aftermarket will have significantly expanded its product portfolio in terms of starter motors and alternators for heavy-duty commercial vehicles. In total, 11 new starter motors and nine new alternators will complement the existing range for commercial vehicles in Europe, Africa and the Near East.

Starter motors and alternating current generators for heavy-duty applications face many challenges: humidity, dust, mud, vibration, high and low temperatures, or aggressive liquids. At the same time, a long service life is essential, especially for products for trucks and other heavy-duty commercial vehicles.

“Thanks to MAHLE’s many years of experience in development and production, we’re also able to provide the truck sector with high-performance starter motors and alternators that are designed for a long service life,” said Olaf Henning, corporate executive vice president and general manager, MAHLE Aftermarket.

MAHLE’s range of starter motor and alternator products grew significantly last year. For the 10 largest manufacturers of heavy-duty commercial vehicles, MAHLE’s products cover around 80 percent of the vehicles currently in service.

The company says that in addition to the new starter motors and alternators, workshops can rely on MAHLE’s corresponding range of spare parts. MAHLE Aftermarket offers spare parts and complete repair kits for everything from voltage regulators and flow redressers, bearings and slip rings for alternators through couplings, transmissions and switches for starter motors.

All of MAHLE’s starter motors and alternators meet OE specifications and are designed for a long service life even in harsh environmental conditions. MAHLE says high quality and outstanding operational reliability are assured by continuously optimizing the products for use in different operating conditions and thanks to numerous validations in MAHLE’s own laboratories and in vehicles. The design of the starter motors and alternators fulfills international guidelines and standards, including the Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) Directive.
