ORGATEC 2018 (Oct. 23rd – Oct. 27th 2018, exhibition Cologne) TEAMOBILITY and WAGNER demonstrate their mobile office
TEAMOBILITY and WAGNER (a brand of TOPSTAR GmbH) present jointly UCCON with the slogan “Move your life”. In close cooperation, both partners created an innovative solution for the mobile office and tomorrow’s driver’s seat. It was demonstrated how ergonomic insights and experiences from the office sector have been incorporated into the design of a future, highly ergonomic and flexible driver’s seat. Cross-industry creativity and “seamless cooperation” were the decisive success factors for the design of the “moving office”. The great interest and the consistently positive response showed that such innovative “corporate solutions” meet the current and future needs of the market.
IAA Commercial Vehicles 2018 -> TEAMOBILITY presented UCCON!
The IAA 2018 has closed its doors. Together with its partners, TEAMOBILITY has successfully presented and discussed UCCON, a solution for the ultra-low-emission, and light commercial vehicle of tomorrow. The large and consistently positive response from various industries underlines that the time is ripe for the implementation of such a concept. A real eye-catcher at the IAA was the prototype UCCON design demonstrator. It was created with the participation and designs of FORM3 and designmanufacture and was realized by PROCEDA and WAGNER. Together with the technology partners CTC & CFK-Valley, STEP / G and above all GIF-E with the much admired world novelty, the IKV-AXMOT engine, accents were set far beyond sectors. A kind of real laboratory not only showed visionary concepts and innovative products, but also demonstrated prototypically industrialized system solutions. TEAMOBILITY’s platinum partner Hörmann Automotive in cooperation with Schaeffler and Röhling excellently demonstrated this successfully with the example of a LCV rolling chassis. It was also this broad variety that aroused great interest after the announcement of the planned IAA appearance of a consortium “From conception to the realization of new ways for urban mobility”.
