Making light work of exhaust systems
The increasing weight reduction in the automotive industry requires the use of lighter, higher strength materials. Prototechnik is the Eberspächer Group’s competence center for light-weight construction and specializes in the development and construction of exhaust systems for increased performance, and exclusive acoustic design, for high-performance sport vehicles. In the in-house titanium production area, the light-weight construction experts combine excellent craftsmanship with high-quality industrial production. High-quality materials such as titanium and inconel are subjected to special welding processes in order to meet the high requirements for mechanical resilience, stability, durability and optics of the exhaust systems.

Major order for Suetrak in Saudi Arabia and Qatar
Eberspaecher Suetrak has procured two new orders in Saudi Arabia and Qatar with EARADAT and Nasser Bin Khaled (NBK). The two transport service providers are fitting a total of 102 of their EvoBus buses with the powerful AC 644 air-conditioning system, which is adapted specially to the harsh desert conditions. Suetrak developed it on the basis of the successful AC 136 G3 model. Fitted with a special blower and motors, this air-conditioning system ensures draft-free, well-distributed air conditioning throughout the passenger compartment, despite the high temperatures outside. With such a major order, Eberspaecher Suetrak is strengthening its reputation as a global system fitter for bus air-conditioning systems and is developing its connections in the Arab region.
Electronics for efficient engine management
The Automotive Controls Division specializes in powerful, customer-specific electronic solutions. A main focus: control devices for modern, efficient engine management. With Glow Plug Control, Automotive Controls offers an efficient glow plug control unit for 4 and 6 cylinder diesel engines. This optimizes performance in the cold start phase and has the option of further optimization through the activation of the fuel filter heater. In normal operation it provides the ideal temperature in the combustion chamber and ensures a quiet and clean running engine. The innovative closed-loop regulator ensures with ceramic and steel glow plugs an exact temperature at the glow plug. This allows higher temperatures to be achieved in the combustion chamber which in turn leads to improved exhaust emissions. A redundant shutdown also increases safety.
