Bendix schedules Tech Talks for MATS

March 24, 2014

Attendees looking to sharpen their truck preventive maintenance skills in areas ranging from brake maintenance and air treatment to diagnostic techniques will benefit from attending the 2014 Bendix Tech Talk Series at the Mid-America Trucking Show. In its fourth year, the popular Tech Talk Series features Bendix product and service experts offering how-to demonstrations, interactive question-and-answer sessions, and discussions of the issues and technologies shaping the commercial vehicle industry.

The 15-minute Tech Talks, open to all show attendees, begin at 10:30 am, Thursday, March 27, and extend through the final session scheduled for 12:30 pm, Saturday, March 29. All 15 scheduled Tech Talks will take place at Bendix’s booth, Number 32305, in the South Hall.

The Bendix Tech Talks address a variety of subjects, including top-of-mind topics such as keeping your vehicle safe with RSD friction; how automatic slack adjusters impact CSA compliance and profitability; and air disc brake maintenance and inspection techniques. 

“In each 15-minute session, vehicle operators can hear from the experts and ask the questions important to them,” says Barbara Gould, Bendix director of communications. “With a mix of trucking hot topics and how-to sessions, what they learn can help their bottom line, whether they are drivers, fleet operators, original equipment reps, or maintenance technicians. The industry is constantly changing, from advanced technologies to government regulations, and people from every corner of the trucking business can help themselves stay educated and informed through the Tech Talks.”

Shortly after the close of the Mid-America Trucking Show, the Bendix Tech Talk sessions will also be available as a part of the growing curriculum on, the Bendix on-line training site. The tool allows users to advance their education on their own terms, from the site’s 24/7/365 accessibility to its new level of training flexibility and customization featuring the most current topics.
