FARMINGTON HILLS, Mich.

MAHLE has developed a diagnostic tool to make the job of servicing today’s computer-controlled engines easier and more efficient.

MAHLE’s TechPRO™, designed by the company’s Services Solutions division, is a versatile Cloud-, PC-, or tablet-enabled device that will help service technicians analyze, diagnose and repair sophisticated powertrains faster and more accurately, according to Scott Bolt, chief engineer for MAHLE test systems.

“The TechPRO is considered the most advanced technology available for professional service technicians,” said Bolt.

He noted that TechPRO technology is based on years of MAHLE’s research and development that has gone into the creation of an advanced diagnostic tool for direct use by the company’s OEM customers.

MAHLE now has adapted that same technology for use in dealership service departments and independent garages.

“Our experience as both a major supplier and creative partner to the world’s major auto manufacturers will allow us to deploy TechPRO to the dealership networks on a global basis,” Bolt said.

MAHLE Service Solutions is a division of MAHLE Aftermarket which specializes in the development and manufacturing of automotive maintenance equipment and tools, including:

  • Air conditioning service;
  • Refrigerant recovery;
  • Fluid exchange, and
  • Nitrogen tire inflation systems.

MAHLE Aftermarket Inc., leverages its expertise from the production of parts for OEMs to provide products to trade, repair shop and engine repair professionals.
