One of the more eye-catching displays at the 2018 Automechanika trade show in Frankfurt, Germany, was Schaeffler’s glass car, which provided a futuristic view of the company’s technology.

The glass car showcased 40 Schaeffler products and systems, including the E-Clutch, the electromagnetic roll stabilizer, the thermal management module and the electric axle.

During the show, technical experts from Schaeffler demonstrated how mixed-reality glasses can provide interactive support for the real-time replacement of a dual-mass flywheel and a timing chain.

Schaeffer, whose LuK, INA and FAG brands serve the automotive aftermarket, used augmented reality to educate visitors on the company’s core competencies. By holding their tablets in front of one of the three augmented-reality displays, attendees were able to view virtual information about the company’s intelligent repair solutions.

At five workbenches, technical experts demonstrated how the company’s products and repair solutions can support garages with their work today. The workbenches also gave attendees a look at Schaeffler’s REPXPERT online portal, which enables users to find and procure the right spare parts easily and quickly, and receive optimal support for professional repair. In addition, they can access installation videos, technical brochures, service information and other materials for Schaeffler products.

Another eye-catcher was the Audi e-tron FE04, currently being driven in the Formula-E series. The fully electric-powered race car, which was on display near the entrance to Schaeffler’s exhibit, demonstrates how Schaeffler technology has proven itself even under the toughest racing conditions.
