Angka-Tan Motor Sdn Bhd, recently held roadshows themed ‘Technology Leading Into The Future’ for dealers and business associates in Johor Baru and Klang.
To introduce the new Foton Auman and Aumark commercial truck series, distributor Angka-Tan Motor Sdn Bhd, a subsidiary of Warisan TC Holdings Bhd, recently held roadshows themed ‘Technology Leading Into The Future’ for dealers and business associates in Johor Baru and Klang.
The roadshows, which were also held in Kuantan and Malacca, were co-hosted by TC Truck Sales Sdn Bhd, a subsidiary of Tan Chong Motor Holdings Bhd.
Angka-Tan Motor Senior General Manager Danny Ng Kiat Seng, Foton International Trade Co Ltd Vice President Gao Ming and TC Truck Sales Senior Manager (Product Head) Lui Tai Sum were present to welcome guests. Beiqi Foton Motor Co Ltd (Foton) is the leading commercial vehicle manufacturer in China.
Upcoming roadshows would be organised in Butterworth (2nd Oct) and Ipoh (16th Oct).
The Foton Auman EST (Energy Super Truck) heavy-duty trucks are known for using technology from global suppliers, thus resulting in a workhorse that delivers superbly on power, fuel saving, reliability, safety and comfort as well as low TCO (total cost of ownership). This heavy-duty truck is offered with 11.8-litre ISG Cummins engines in two states of tune; one with 380hp and 2,000Nm of torque and the other, a higher-powered unit with 430hp and 2,200Nm of torque. Available in 4x2, 6x4 and 6x2 configurations, it is fitted with premium ZF gearboxes (16-speed manual or 12-speed AMT - automated manual transmission).
A highlight is the optional high-performance ZF Intarder, integrated in the transmission, which provides up to 600kW brake force (800hp) and could relieve the service brakes by up to 90 per cent. This results in less wear and overheating on the brakes, and better safety. Depending on need, drivers could also select drive modes such as crawl and sensitive drive.
The Auman EST is also designed with fuel saving technologies that include the ISG Cummins engines, which use ultra-high pressure fuel injection and lightweight materials, and could provide fuel savings of two to three litres per 100km. Its aerodynamically improved truck body design improves drag coefficient by 5 per cent, thus lowering fuel consumption by 2 per cent.
Meanwhile, the ZF Traxon gearbox, which is an AMT, could provide fuel savings of up to 6 per cent compared to the ZF manual gear shifter. It also has a gliding function during coasting for more fuel savings, and is designed for 66 per cent more gear changes and clutch durability of up to 300 per cent compared to the manual transmission.
“The ZF Traxon (AMT) enables a smooth drive and the driver could concentrate on the road, while the advanced steering system enables precise control,” said Ng.
Noteworthy safety features include disc brakes on the front axle as well as a cabin that meets EU regulation (ECER29 - 03) for crash situations and could move backwards 200mm in a collision. Standard safety features include Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS) and Anti-Slip Regulation (ASR). The Auman EST also has the iBrake engine braking system with a maximum force of up to 370hp to reduce stopping distance by 30 per cent. It features a large cab that matches European competitor trucks, with low interior noise level (pass ECER51-03) and ergonomic switches and controls.
For greater comfort, the Auman EST A 4x2 variant could come with rear air suspension.
Other features include the air suspension seat, electric tilt cabin, double sleeping berths, electrically adjustable rear view mirrors, 70-degree cabin tilt angle and automatic greasing system.
The driver only needs to pump grease to the propeller shaft and front brake camshaft. A manual grease pump and driver training would be provided by Angka-Tan Moto. The Auman EST is designed for a service life span of one million kilometres and built using components from top American and European suppliers, thus ensuring state-of-the-art reliability and quality.
“Low prices for parts and after-sales service ensure best costs and vehicle uptime,” said Ng.
The Auman EST has service intervals of 40,000km and comes with a 4-year unlimited mileage warranty.
Also featuring ZF transmissions across the range, the Foton Aumark light-duty trucks are powered by the Cummins ISF 2.8-litre and 3.8-litre engines. These engines are 10 to 20 per cent lighter with 10 per cent more power than the competition, and are easily matched with any driveline to provide a maximum speed of 115kph, which is 30 per cent higher than rivals.
They are described as very torquey and could meet B20 diesel suitability without any change to the service intervals.
Compared with the competition, fuel consumption is said to be 8 per cent lower and the engines use a modular design that results in the number of parts being reduced by 40 per cent. This greatly lowers weight and maintenance cost.
Models include the Aumark BJ1041 that has a GVW (gross vehicle weight) of 5 tonnes and exhaust brakes. Powered by the Cummins ISF 2.8-litre engine mated to a 5-speed ZF transmission, the Aumark BJ1041 output is 130ps at 3,200rpm and 310Nm at 1,600 to 2,700rpm.
There is also the Aumark BJ1061 that has GVWs of 7.5 or 9 tonnes and is fitted with a full air braking system. It is powered by the Cummins ISF 3.8-litre engine mated to a 6-speed ZF transmission and output is 156ps at 2,600 and 500Nm at 1,200 to 1,900rpm.
The Aumark trucks have service intervals of 15,000km and come with a 4-year or 200,000km warranty.
