WIX Filters Launches VarioPleat Technology


Recommended Posts

WIX Filters, a division of MANN+HUMMEL, has launched WIX VarioPleat technology, allowing the company to provide air-filter technology to meet the needs of heavy-duty and industrial customers.

Available early next year in North America, the advancement allows WIX to provide exact-fit replacement parts for buyers that have varying-sized applications. The innovative technology will cover many applications, for both on- and off-road machines, according to the company. Containing variable and deep pleats, the advancement offers a high filtration capacity that comes in several different shapes to meet aftermarket standards. 

Additionally, the rugged containment molded frame contains built-in handles, allowing for easy filter removal. The technology is highly efficient and offers a robust design for a wide range of customers that have specialty filtration needs, according to WIX. 

“At WIX, we understand the need for various-shaped materials and products to fit the wide range of applications that are available,” said Donald Chilton, director of product management at MANN+HUMMEL. “The development of this new line gives heavy-duty and industrial machine owners the option to get all of their parts from one place.”

WIX has 11 facilities in eight different countries and manufactures more than 210 million filters annually. Focusing on innovation and quality, WIX meets or exceeds OEM standards for fit, form and function and has partnered with companies across the country to also offer price-competitive products, according to the company.

      Australian clutch manufacturer Clutch Industries is launching two versions of its UniClutch system in the United States.
      UniClutch and UniClutch Sport will be the first iterations of the system to launch in the United States.
      UniClutch’s dual-core technology significantly boosts torque capacity without compromising drivability, according to the company.
      “Its one-of-a-kind, patented and adaptable design fits a multitude of vehicles, simplifies inventory management, expedites clutch replacement time, and lessens common installation problems,” Clutch Industries said in a news release.
      Compared to UniClutch, UniClutch Sport offers 15% more torque capacity and a sport-tuned pedal feel for more serious enthusiasts, the company noted.
      “We’re thrilled to introduce UniClutch to the United States after seeing strong early success in the Australia market,” said Brad Davis, CEO of Clutch Industries. “Auto repair shop feedback has been very positive, especially from technicians praising a faster and easier installation process. It’s also been our experience that shops can carry 20 times less inventory without impacting their ability to service any vehicle. We feel confident that UniClutch has the potential to redefine the performance clutch market with this revolutionary design.”
      Clutch installation typically is an expensive, complicated and lengthy process. UniClutch’s sealed design eliminates the need for flywheel machining, while the Flex Fit technology and pre-alignment allows for hassle-free “bolt-on” installation in minutes. The patented modular technology adapts to different engines and transmissions, greatly reducing installation times and empowering technicians to quickly service a wider range of vehicles.
      “For parts distributors, UniClutch’s patented Flex Fit technology will be transformative in inventory management, simplifying thousands of product variations to just a few,” Clutch Industries said. “This creates a solution for the complex ordering process for distributors, avoiding the challenges faced by an ever-changing supply chain. With UniClutch, parts distributors can provide consistent service to customers with a better return on investment.”
      A unique QR code found on every UniClutch contains manufacturing and performance specifications for each unit.
      At launch, UniClutch will retail exclusively at select NAPA Auto Parts stores across the United States and is available for purchase online via

      KYB recently unveiled the KYB Parts Catalog app.
      While most mobile catalog apps only ask for the year, make and model when searching for part numbers, KYB said its app dives much deeper, requesting information such as engine size, trim package and drivetrain type when applicable.
      The additional levels of detail provide “an accurate and much narrower list of recommended shock-and-strut applications and part numbers,” according to the company.
      With the app, service writers and technicians can quickly search for the part they need without accessing a computer. The app also provides recommended part numbers for performance-upgrade shocks and struts, strut mounts, boots and bumpers if available.
      The app can recommend the closest retailer or wholesaler from which to order the part, KYB noted.  
      “The new KYB Parts Catalog app quickly provides repair shops with the right part number, helping to reduce repair time and opening repair bays quicker,” the company said in a news release.
      Those who were using the KYB Shocks app will be automatically updated to this latest version, KYB said. New users can download the KYB Parts Catalog on The App Store and Google Play.
