Mahle Introduces ATX 150 Automatic Transmission Service Machine
Mahle Aftermarket Inc. has added the ATX 150, an entry-level automatic transmission service unit, to its FluidPro line.
Just like all operating media in the vehicle, the transmission oil ages over time. “Changing the oil regularly means you can enjoy driving with an automatic transmission for longer,” says Olaf Henning, corporate executive vice president and general manager.
“With the new ATX 150, we offer workshops a fast, low-cost, and precise service for automatic transmissions in passenger cars and delivery vans.”
The company says this new model in its proven FluidPro line allows workshops to carry out the oil service in accordance with Mahle Aftermarket’s E³ principle: environmentally sound, economical, and efficient.
Zero Cross Concept
“The Zero Cross concept is requested by numerous vehicle manufacturers and has already proven itself in our ATX 180. So the ATX 150 also has a unique service concept: guaranteed purity when changing the transmission oil type,” says Olaf Henning.
Oil types are changed by means of easily replaceable oil tanks. Using a specially developed hydraulic circuit linked to the software, the workshop can safely transfer the ATX 150 with minimal fresh oil to a new transmission and thus a new type of oil. This prevents mixing of different oil types.
Transmission Oil Filters
In addition, Mahle Aftermarket recently expanded its range of oil filters to include a number of additional filter Articles for automatic transmissions. The transmission oil filters remove abrasions from the transmission and provide effective protection against damage.
With these Articles and the ATX 150 and ATX 180 service units, Mahle Aftermarket says it is able to offer a comprehensive automatic transmission service from a single source.
