DEUTZ to introduce augmented reality-based maintenance tools at CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2020
The company will also be presenting its sustainable off-highway drive systems and digital service solutions
Showcasing equipment for highly efficient, conventional internal-combustion technologies and for a zero-carbon off-highway sector, including diesel, gas, hybrid, electric, and hydrogen-based technologies, DEUTZ will also display innovative e-services that have been developed to ensure maximum dependability of drive systems. These include mobile engine diagnostics using telemetry and ground-breaking maintenance tools that use AR.
DEUTZ customers can use the Advanced Configurator to select from the Company's modular range of innovative drive systems. Using the customer's performance specifications and relevant emissions requirements, DEUTZ configures the ideal combination of conventional and electric drive components. The results will be on show for CONEXPO visitors in the form of an all-electric JLG G5-18A telehandler which utilizes a split drive with two 40 kW electric motors and a battery capacity of 42 kWh.
Also newly introduced is the new DEUTZ D-1.2 hybrid engine. This highly compact three-cylinder engine with a capacity of 1.2 liters plus a 48 volt electric motor is the ideal solution for low-load applications. Moreover, DEUTZ will be teaming up with Futavis to showcase a battery system that is now ready for pilot production.
In the service business, DEUTZ will be presenting its innovative Advanced Repair approach, which encompasses various digital service concepts for ensuring that machinery and equipment can be deployed safely, efficiently, and conveniently. For example, end users can use DEUTZ's telemetry solution to run mobile engine diagnostics, immediately send the results to the nearest service center, and book the necessary maintenance work. To enable maintenance to be carried out even more efficiently, DEUTZ offers an augmented reality app for tablets that supports mechanics directly while they are carrying out the required work on an engine. Visitors to the exhibition can try out the app for themselves at the DEUTZ stand.
