JOST successful at the IAA 2018

2,175 exhibitors from 48 countries, 250,000 visitors – and JOST was in the midst of it all. Every other year, the IAA Commercial Vehicles trade fair marks one of the most important dates in the JOST trade fair calendar. Many months of preparation were necessary before the first visitors could be welcomed at the more than 700-square-meter stand in Hanover on 20 September.

The four JOST World brands were represented with their proven product range and several innovations. For the first time, JOST presented a biodegradable high-performance lubricant for fifth wheel couplings, the Optima – a new landing gear for long-distance transport – and sensor solutions for the ultralight JSK 34. In the field of axles, the weight-optimised DCA-T7 disc brake, the JOST Plug & Play solution for tyre filling systems and the JOST Twin Lift were premièred at the trade fair. 

TRIDEC presented the new EF-S steering system, which offers entirely new possibilities for driving and manoeuvring. The new, double-acting CD cylinders from Edbro were the highlight of the hydraulic systems specialist’s presence at the IAA. ROCKINGER showcased its award-winning and diverse portfolio of towing hitches. 

At the innovation stage, JOST impressed the trade fair visitors several times a day with a demonstration that allowed them to experience the automated KKS coupling system in action with the TRIDEC EF-S steering system. The interaction of the two smart solutions provides a glimpse of the future-oriented technology from JOST World – on the road to the autonomous docking system (ADS).
