Lev Krylov from Diesel Market hosted a seminar of diesel specialists from mainly Central Russia last April. All participants were members of Dieselist.ru online forum, founded back in 2006, which gives all diesel specialists a great opportunity to exchange views, opinions and advice and share their experiences.
The event was also attended by Katsuyuki Adachi, Denso Service Manager, Artur Nigmatullin, Denso Service Engineer and Vladimir Yanchevski, who represented Hartridge Ltd.
It was an opportunity not to be missed for Denso to present their developing plans of a Diesel Repair network in Russia, with a network structure and authorisation requirements for different categories as well as the advantages of becoming a Denso authorised diesel service. Denso also introduced the DST-PC package - a must have diagnostic tool for Denso Service specialists.
Hartridge presented their full range of latest technologies available to the independents and authorised diesel specialists, from test benches to various kits to test CR pumps and injectors.
Diesel Market provided participants with detailed knowledge on Common Rail and the advantages of becoming an authorised CR Diesel Service workshop, with specific requirements regarding the equipment, OEM cleanliness standards, and a list of spare parts currently available from the manufacturers to repair injectors.
During the afternoon, the delegates were invited to visit a company diesel workshop, equipped in accordance with Denso and Delphi CR repair requirements. They had a chance to see the testing of Delphi CR injectors in All Makes and Delphi authorised modes on a Hartridge AVM2-PC test bench using the Delphi interface and Ocres software. The Denso representatives held a demonstration of the DST-PC package diagnostics capabilities on a Toyota Avensis.
The event was a great success; all delegates and OEM’s agreed unanimously that it was a meeting worth repeating as it gives everyone a chance of getting “first-hand” information about the latest products and technologies available in their specific markets.
