Timken Launches New Training Material Resources For Automotive Technicians


The Timken Company announces the launch of four new training videos and multiple TechTips focusing on light vehicles during Automotive Aftermarket Week. Timken will reveal all of its new technical training materials at their booth (#3018) at Automotive Aftermarket Products Expo in Las Vegas from Nov. 4-6, 2014.

Two of the training videos support the Timken online predictive analytics inventory optimization solution, Demand Insight. The solution provides distributors a quick and easy way to identify and stock an optimal inventory mix that corresponds with their local customers’ current and future demand. Timken designed Demand Insight to support its distributors with valuable programs and technology designed to help them grow sales and profits.

“Demand Insight helps us understand county-specific demand for Timken parts in our market,” said Alena Van Cleave, market analysis manager for A & Jay Automotive Warehouse, Inc. “Since we know what to stock, we are capturing sales we might have lost to the competition while reducing our inventory.”
This year, Timken added medium-duty vehicle aftermarket demand into Demand Insight, which provided more functionality to existing automotive customers and introduced the system to commercial vehicle customers. More than 300 distributors and sales representatives take advantage of Demand Insight, which includes more than 4,000 parts with vehicle applications, to help stock their shelves.

Timken also will release two videos – one on active seal encoders and the other covering super duty hub assembly. In addition to viewing all the videos at the Timken AAPEX booth, you can also go to https://www.youtube.com/user/TheTimkenCompany.

Rounding out its technical support services, Timken announces the launch of Timken TechTips in the light vehicle market. These tips offer proper bearing handling advice and maintenance topics for light vehicles. Use these tips to minimize return rates, learn accepted maintenance practices and get the most out of your Timken products. TechTips can be found exclusively at Timken.com/techtips.
