Eaton launches a new line of special tools for repairing transmissions


June 16, 2014: Eaton, the global power management company, has expanded its portfolio for the automotive market again.

Focusing on Aftermarket, the company launched a complete line of special tools for repairing all models of its transmissions available in Brazil.

A total of 180 items comprise the portfolio presented in a 60-page catalogue. Among them, there is the extractor/installer of components such as seals and bearings, supports in general, sliding hammer, and support bases. Independent mechanical workshops in Brazil will have access to tools through the company suppliers network, one of the largest in the country.

Resulting from market search, the promotional material enables the mechanic to quickly find the right tools with ease, in order to fix each transmission. The query to items can be performed through a registration part, which provides the image of the tool and a picture of its mode of operation, and also through the visualization of a matrix comprised of models of transmissions and their respective tools.

This new strategy aims towards contributing for the training of professionals of repair and, consequently, for the improvement of service in Brazilian mechanical shops. “Currently, its common to see mechanics using universal tools that are not suitable for fixing Eaton transmission, and, because of that, they demand more time and may damage components. The use of suitable tools enables the progress of quality of this kind of service”, explains Fabio Fernandes, sales manager of Eaton spare parts. The catalogue with tools is going to be available in mechanical shops from July this year.
