Discover, debate and discuss improving performance and lowering emissions from today’s industrial vehicle internal-combustion engines

Over 30 international speakers will present their findings and views on how to increase internal-combustion engine performance, while at the same time preparing to meet the forthcoming Euro VI emission standards

The Industrial Vehicle Powertrain Technology Conference recognizes that the compression engine is very much the mainstay powerplant for industrial vehicles as it is highly efficient, powerful and cost-efficient to manufacture. Numerous ‘bolt-on’ technologies exist that can not only improve performance, but also lower emissions. The conference program reviews and presents such technologies to an audience of senior-level engineers and R&D directors from OEMs and Tier 1 and 2 suppliers, engine manufacturers, and experts and research organizations.

The Industrial Vehicle Powertrain Technology Conference forms part of four highly targeted industrial-vehicle technology conferences including Autonomous Industrial Vehicle Technology Conference, the Electric & Hybrid Industrial Vehicle Technology Conference and the Industrial Vehicle Cab Design & Technology Conference. All four conferences take place at the same time in Köln Messe, and just one conference pass gives you access to all four events.

Topics Under Discussion

  • Ultra-low-emission powertrain design, configurations and technologies
  • Efficiency gains from driveline design and technology
  • Engine management systems
  • Hydromechanical and continuously variable transmissions
  • Hydrostatic transmissions
  • Torque converters
  • Lubrication
  • Thermal management
  • Exhaust gas management and particle filters
  • Energy recovery systems
  • Alternative fuels
  • Transmission control, power transfer and differentials
  • Axle systems
  • Gas engine development

One conference pass gives you access to four industrial vehicle conferences and the exhibition
