In direct response to the growing Asia Pacific vehicle parc equipped with Common Rail and EUI technology, Delphi Product & Service Solution (DPSS) have created a training school at the China Technical Centre (CTC), Shanghai, to support the increased number of authorised Delphi Service workshops.
During week commencing 8th June 09, the first training course at the new training school, took place and was attended by 19 delegates from the Delphi Service network. The 5-day training covered the foundation of Hartridge test equipment operation, All Makes test of Common Rail and EUI technology, and Delphi authorized Common Rail pump and injector test & repair were separately introduced by Stuart Justice, Technical Support Engineer from Hartridge UK and Guojun Wang, Service Director from DPSS Diesel China. The attendees also had the opportunity to practice what they had learned and discuss the problems they encountered.
“I am impressed by the event with excellent arrangements”, said Mr. Jiancheng Li from Taiwan COE after getting his certificate of training,” It provides a very good platform for us learning and communication. We are confident to cooperate with the world’s leading auto parts supplier like Delphi and looking forward to attending such event next time.”
The networks in China and Taiwan are keen to understand the detail of CR pump and injector testing and the procedures necessary to generate new product performance codes (Delphi C2I coding) to ensure that the repaired/tested product maintains performance in accordance with the manufacturers’ specification. Keith Payne – Hartridge UK – who is responsible for the Far East region was also present to advise the delegates on All Makes testing of Delphi, Bosch, Denso and Continental products.
This training is crucial in ensuring that the centres of technical excellence (Tier one service workshops) equipped with the Hartridge AVM2-PC test stand, lead the China market in the testing of new technology. Keith Payne confirmed “we were particularly impressed by the enthusiasm of the delegates attending this event. Their energy and willingness to embrace what is at times a complex, technical subject was commendable”.
As technology advances with new operating pressure thresholds and the introduction of piezo technology, the need for clear and focused training will be paramount.
The new Delphi Training School will meet these requirements over the coming months and years underpinning Delphi Diesels OE growth expectations in the region. “Delphi Diesel National Distributor is the preferred Hartridge franchise to provide the comprehensive Diesel Fuel Injection System test solutions to the market“, said Guojun Wang, Service Director, DPSS Diesel China.,” We will continually bring our expertise to support the growth of industry by providing the innovative products, technical support and training.
Delphi, Denso & Continental partner exclusively with Hartridge for the supply of their Common Rail pump and injector, test and calibration solutions.
