Innovations and Products for the Aftermarket
beep&park/vision™ new technology
beep&park/vision™ is Valeo’s ultimate parking assistance system, which makes the most of the latest innovations. It combines a new rear camera with new reversing radars that send audible and visual signals every time the driver parks. It’s the ideal solution for adding optional equipment, whatever the vehicle.
Flat Blade Truck
Already successful on passenger cars, with 9 new vehicles out of 10 equipped with Flat Blade in O.E., Flat Blade technology is now a must-have. As N°1 O.E.M. supplier for wiper systems worldwide, Valeo has designed a Flat Blade specifically adapted to trucks. Truck drivers are now able to upgrade their original conventional blade and benefit from all the advantages of the Flat Blade.
optiPACK™ is the Valeo innovative truck brake pad solution developed for the Aftermarket. It has been designed to enable professionals to save time, minimize vehicle downtime and simplify ordering. This “all-in-one” kit includes the brake pads, accessories and wear indicators required to complete a secure brake pad replacement. optiPACK™ is an easy-to-sell, easy-to-store and easy-to-fit solution for all commercial vehicle segments, including light to heavy trucks, semi-trailers, buses and coaches. With only 57 part numbers, including 30 new in 2012, optiPACK™ covers 92% of all European trucks.
NU-LOK™ is the new generation of enhanced performance anti-noise shims, which provide a secure attachment to the pad plate. NU-LOK™ is specifically designed to cover all the contact points of the plate to caliper fit. Thanks to its geometry, the NU-LOK™ shim completely isolates the piston, avoiding even minimum steel-to-steel contact and then optimizing the anti-noise performance. In addition, thanks to the NU-LOK™ locking finger attachment system, the shim on the pad is self-attached, providing a secure attachment to the pad plate. On the road and during braking, the piston force makes the pad shift, and this tends to damage the traditional shim and compromises the integrity of the system.
Valeo smart packagings, QR-codes and rich media
Valeo offers a new interactive service to help users replace the main- tenance products on their vehicles, in the form of videos which guide them as they select, fit and use their Valeo products. They are accessible for free, on the packaging of an increasing number of Valeo products. With a smartphone or tablet, users can flash the QR-codes on the front of the pack and view these instructional videos, available in up to nine languages, as often as they like.
