WABCO’s newest AMT solution increases fuel savings through optimized gear shifting. It also differentiates by helping vehicle operators to significantly reduce mechanical wear, lower maintenance costs and decrease vehicle downtime. In addition, WABCO AMT technology has been engineered to reduce fuel consumption consistent with the industry’s most stringent standards.
First to market in 1986 with AMT control technology for commercial vehicles, WABCO is the global market leader with 3.5 million AMT systems sold. WABCO’s world-class engineers and global supply chain are in close proximity with major vehicle and transmission makers worldwide. WABCO’s AMT system also differentiates through reduced component weight, more compact design and simplified assembly processes, resulting in lower installation and manufacturing costs.
