Varied 19th Choice Tech Seminar


On Saturday 17th of September over 120 rebuilders were gathered to learn more on a variety of transmission subjects at the 19th Choice Tech Seminar.

While at the background visitors browsed the Automechanika, guest speaker Wayne Colonna from ATSG invited his attentive listeners to the world of Can Bus Communication Diagnoses. This is for sure an important but tricky subject for every rebuilder of automatic transmissions, but Wayne provided them a steady base

With subjects as the Mercedes 7G-tronic and 9G-tronic, plus the 8L90; 6R60; ZF8HP55; Nissan RE5R05A; Toyota A761E/AB60E; Toyota U660-E/U760-E, one could say the update session of Wayne comprised a fair variety of gearboxes.

Bob Warnke from Sonnax showed some practical steps in working with valve bodies. The day was concluded by a presentation of Markus Hofmann from ZF. The participants were introduced to the Hybrid ZF 8 speed transmission. He stated on the importance of awareness; better make sure to be prepared because it is a development which is bound to literally arrive into your workshop. 
Next to this the ZF 9 speed 9HP was discussed. Markus had brought several parts with him and gave tips on (dis)mantling. The presence of the camera made it possible for the entire room to see his steps in detail.

Overall we can look back on a successful seminar; the room was filled with serious participants; the reviews were positive and useful in comments and we were able to share technical knowledge once more. 

With this enthusiasm in mind we are already looking forward to the next Choice Tech Seminars, which will take place on Saturday 20th of May, 2017 in Bristol and on Saturday 17th of June, 2017 in Amsterdam. Keep an eye on our website for more details shortly. 

We like to thank our wonderful guest speakers and our valued customers for another successful Choice Tech Seminar!
