JOST World at Automechanika 2016.
JOST World and its JOST, ROCKINGER, TRIDEC and Edbro brands will be exhibiting at Automechanika 2016 in Frankfurt from 13th to 17th September 2016. A first for Automechanika: Original spare parts now available for JOST and Mercedes-Benz axle systems.
JOST is the world's leading producer of vehicle connection systems, modules and components for truck & trailer. The safety of fifth wheel couplings, towing hitches, landing gears and other components for trucks and trailers will be the focus of the JOST trade fair presentation. JOST plans to use this leading international trade show for car parts, workshop equipment and accessories to introduce the original spare parts to the spare parts trade and workshop operators.
Even in components that do not appear related to safety, faulty spare parts can cause significant damage. That is why JOST recommends always using original spare parts when wearing parts are replaced.
To make sure customers do not accidentally counterfeit parts, JOST delivers all original spare parts in packaging that carries a hologram label. This serves as a seal for the spare parts kits and, if undamaged, guarantees the originality of the contents.
With production and development on all continents, JOST and its world-wide distributors offer a comprehensive range of services that also ensures an immediate supply of original spare parts.
From now trailer axles from JOST
JOST acquired Mercedes-Benz TrailerAxleSystems in early 2015 and now sells JOST axle systems. For the first time, the JOST stand will present the DCA Airmaster, which stores compressed air for braking systems and pneumatic suspension in the axle body, replacing the conventional compressed air tanks used on trailers and semi-trailers. Original spare parts for JOST and Mercedes-Benz axle systems are now available through the JOST sales network. The spare parts JOST supplies for the DCA series include not only new axles, but also spare parts for all Mercedes-Benz trailer axles manufactured before 2015.
The JSK 37, the robust cast fifth wheel coupling, will also be on display. The fifth wheel coupling can also be purchased or equipped with the LubeTronic-5Point automatic lubrication system, which ensures reliable lubrication of the fifth wheel coupling plate and lock jaw. This results in lower operating costs by reducing the number of relubrication operations and the amount of grease needed.
ROCKINGER – elected by German professional readers for the 12th time in a row for “Best Brand” in the category of towing hitches - presents its multifunctional alternating system VARIOBLOC for transporter, crosscountry vehicles and buses, in connection with pin hitch, hook trailer hitch and hitch ball. The VARIOBLOC enables various coupling systems to be changed and removed easily, thanks to the easy-to-access construction even when space is limited. This system is particularly suitable for towbar bracket systems and work devices.
The Edbro brand - also known as the founder of telescopic cylinders - will showcase the CS 15 cylinder with a tipping weight of 22 to 45 tonnes. The cylinders in the CS series are characterised by a unique tube design and laser welding techniques that further increase the Edbro weight advantage.
