Continental Introduces Floor Display For Commercial-Duty Wipers


Recommended Posts

Continental has introduced a new floor display as a part of its ClearContact commercial-duty wiper-blades program.

The display can accommodate an assortment of up to 70 wiper blades that can be selected by the retailer or service facility. Continental will help customize a product mix that best fits the customer’s sales and applications needs.

The ClearContact commercial-duty line includes 43 part numbers in lengths from 10 to 40 inches. The blades are specially engineered for commercial trucks, RVs, transit buses, school buses, motorcoaches and off-highway vehicles.

“This high-impact display is an excellent sales tool for service centers, truck stops and parts retailers for commercial-duty vehicles and RVs,” said Laura Huerst, Continental product manager. “It features a very small footprint of 18 inches long by 18 inches wide by 63.5 inches high and the display header card includes a QR code that links directly to an application guide, allowing customers to find the exact blades they need. This gives retailers the ability to stock the wiper blades they sell most often, maximizing coverage with minimal inventory.”

Continental’s ClearContact commercial-duty wiper blades are designed for a simple and fast installation and come with all the necessary hardware required to install. They feature a reinforced steel frame and precision-cut natural rubber wiper blade to ensure clear vision, edge-to-edge wiping and reliability in all weather conditions. ClearContact commercial-duty blades are available in four designs including flat, five bar, wide saddle and hook. They provide coverage for a wide range of vehicle applications on Class 1 through Class 8 trucks, buses, motorcoaches and Class A, B and C motorhomes.

      Continental announced that the NightViu premium line of professional driving and working lights will be made available to consumer markets, including off-road enthusiasts, recreational vehicles (RVs) and marine.
      Originally designed for use on construction, mining and off-highway equipment, “the NightViu lighting line provides a level of rugged design, durability and performance not normally seen in consumer-lighting products,” according to Continental.  
      Built to withstand extreme temperatures, vibration, dust and moisture, NightViu lights feature advanced LED technology that provides excellent lighting performance and exceptional energy efficiency, according to the company.  
      NightViu driving lights provide a focused beam of light for long-distance illumination. They’re ideal for applications such as desert/rally racing or any activity where maximum beam distance is required, Continental noted.
      NightViu working lights provide beams that are shorter but wider. This makes them suitable for applications such as rock crawling, lighting up pickup beds and sport fishing boats.
      “The NightViu line was created for some of the toughest applications you can imagine including mining, construction and agriculture,” said Edwin Betancourt Jr., product manager, Continental. “Some might consider them over-engineered for consumer applications, but we believe there are folks out there who simply want the best they can get for their lighting. That’s why we’ve decided to make NightViu available for off-road enthusiasts, RV owners, and others who want a professional level light source for their off-road activities. These lights can be used for ATVs, UTVs and SUVs, as well as Jeeps, snowmobiles, work trucks and even riding lawnmowers and go-karts. The build quality and housing seals make them suitable for marine applications as well including blue-water cruising and fishing.”
      NightViu working lights are available in a choice of ultra-wide, wide, flood and spot beam patterns.
      Each of the beam patterns is offered in a choice of 1,500, 2,500, 3,500 and 4,500 lumen performance for a total of 16 lights in the NightViu range of working lights.  
      NightViu driving lights are available in a variety of designs and configurations including five light bars, three multifunctional lights and two reversing lights. They provide up to 5,500 lumens and a beam field length of up to 440 meters. The lights feature free-form curved reflectors that direct the light beam exactly where it’s needed.
      NightViu Lights are built to withstand temperatures ranging from minus 40 F to 194 F and are rated IP68 for ingress protection (IP) from dust and water. They produce approximately 100 lumens per watt and have been designed to ensure that they do not create electrical interference that could affect the vehicles existing electronics.

      Epicor introduced two solutions that enable parts distributors and vehicle service/repair businesses to predict likely future demand based on sophisticated new data models.
      The new solutions, Epicor Predictive Inventory Assistant (PIA) and Predictive Maintenance Assistant (PMA), were on display at the company’s booth at AAPEX 2023 in Las Vegas.
      Epicor PIA and PMA leverage the power of the Epicor aftermarket product content engine and connected data network, which together provide visibility into more than 1 billion individual part transactions and more than 140 million vehicle repair events per year, according to the company.
      Epicor data scientists combined this channel visibility with predictive modelling and leading-edge deployment technologies to deliver real-time parts inventory and service/repair intelligence to two of the industry’s most important decision points.
      “These exciting new solutions harness the power of data to help customers not only have the right parts at the right place at the right time, but also to anticipate and address future sales and service opportunities,” said Tim Hardin, Epicor senior vice president of global automotive, data, and extend services. “The resulting ‘Insight Advantage’ empowers Epicor customers to think big and grow faster by being significantly more efficient and providing a great customer experience.”
      Epicor Predictive Inventory Assistant
      Epicor PIA is the industry’s first intelligent inventory-management solution, according to Epicor, providing stocking recommendations based on aggregated financial information from “stores like you.”
      PIA uses machine-learning technologies to intelligently cluster similar stores based on a variety of dimensions, such as growth score, size, local car parc and geographical location/urbanization level. PIA ranks part numbers and makes “add” recommendations of specific parts not currently in the user’s inventory, but which are driving revenue growth at other, similar stores.
      “Predictive Inventory Assistant adds an entirely new layer of intelligence to existing inventory modeling solutions by factoring in store and market characteristics that, until now, required detailed study and input from distributor and store personnel,” Hardin said. “PIA enables these businesses to continually and easily optimize their inventories to match emerging demand.”
      Epicor Predictive Maintenance Assistant
      Epicor PMA is the only solution that enables service and repair providers to predict future repairs for any popular passenger vehicle, according to the company. The solution puts real-time, AI-enriched forecasts at the fingertips of vehicle service professionals as they are writing estimates, interacting with technicians, and advising their customers.
      “Imagine taking your vehicle to a tire dealership for new tires and being informed that there’s a good chance you will experience a water pump failure in the near future. This holistic vehicle repair intelligence can help shops dramatically strengthen customer confidence and trust, and ultimately, accelerate profitable growth,” Hardin said.
      Epicor PMA uses web “listener” and MicroStrategy HyperCard technologies to generate vehicle-specific service ranking reports that are presented via the user’s mobile device or web browser. The service writer or other user can click on the HyperCard to access a comprehensive PMA service dossier covering replacement rate information for more than 100 part and service types specific to the customer’s vehicle year/make/model/engine.
      This instant repair intelligence offers value at the service desk, in guiding vehicle inspections, deploying repair reminders, selling extended warranties, and when consulting customers who are considering the purchase of a used vehicle, among other situations.
      “Because they have so many choices, today’s digitally enabled consumers often need additional reasons to return to and trust a vehicle service provider,” Hardin said. “Epicor Predictive Maintenance Assistant enables shops to differentiate themselves through data-driven intelligence that helps take the guesswork out of the car ownership and repair experience.”

      Continental has added eight new part numbers to its line of OEM knock sensors.  
      The sensors are the same part that the vehicle manufacturer uses and deliver the exact fit, form and function as the original part, ensuring an easy installation and long service life, according to Continental.
      The eight new part numbers provide application coverage for some of the most popular domestic, European and Asian makes and models on the road today. The expanded line covers Chrysler, Dodge, Ford, Infiniti, Jeep, Lincoln, Mercedes-Benz, Mercury, Nissan and Ram models ranging from 2000 to 2023. The new sensors provide coverage for 28.8 million vehicles in operation (VIO) in the United States and 2.4 million vehicles in Canada.
      “Our newly expanded line was developed to meet the growing need for reliable knock sensors on some of the most common vehicles on the road today,” noted Brendan Bachant, Continental product manager for engine management and fuel. “The original sensors can be prone to failure due to mechanical damage, excessive vibration, high engine temperatures, and corrosion. Continental has made these OEM sensors available to the aftermarket so that professional technicians can easily and confidently service the most common vehicles in the shop, like the Ford F-150 and Explorer, the Jeep Wrangler and the Nissan Maxima and Altima. Technicians can be confident when choosing the Continental knock sensor that they will avoid comebacks.”
      Knock sensors are designed to detect engine ping caused by pre-ignition and relay the information to the electronic control unit to adjust engine timing and help keep the engine running smoothly. These sensors are an ideal repair for a rough-running engine with a timing and knock-sensor fault code and will help shops to restore the performance of their customers’ vehicles to OE specifications, according to Continental.
      Continental knock sensors are built in ISO-certified facilities to deliver the highest level of dependability, the company noted.
