World's leading trade fair now even more international – Proportion of trade visitors up
Held from 22nd to 29th September 2016 in Hanover, this year's IAA Commercial Vehicles developed even more into a professional specialist trade fair for decision-makers: with the proportion of trade visitors rising to 86 per cent (2014: 84 per cent). The total number of visitors increased to 260,000.
Alongside its diverse product range of components and systems for truck and trailer, JOST presented new innovations and developments at IAA Commercial Vehicles 2016.
Highlights of JOST's presentation at IAA also included trailer axles engineered by Mercedes-Benz, which were displayed for the first time under the JOST brand. The JSK 34 sensor coupling version of the ultralight JSK 34 fifth wheel coupling, which was especially developed for tankers and silo trucks, was presented for the first time at IAA in Hanover. As well as axles and fifth wheel couplings, the most comprehensive range of landing gears was also exhibited, and the new electric landing gear Modul E-Drive was launched.
The tried-and-tested, multi-award-winning towing hitches under the ROCKINGER brand were also represented at the JOST Group's stand.
TRIDEC, JOST World's brand for trailer axle steering systems and single wheel suspensions, presented the new EF-S steering system for trailers, which offers entirely new options for driving, manoeuvring and safety.
The particularly lightweight CS 17-5 tipping hoist cylinder for semi-trailers was the highlight among the hydraulic systems presented at IAA by Edbro.
The New Mobility World innovation stage provided a chance to experience the automatic KKS Comfort Coupling System and TRIDEC's EF-S steering system live.
We were delighted with the many expert discussions we held and the interested audience we met. You can find some pictures of the IAA trade fair stand here
