Hella to display modular concepts and lighting innovations at Busworld
One of the Hella’s product highlights is LED headlamps, which the company has put into series production for the new G8 coach series of the Brazilian bus manufacturer Marcopolo.
At this year's Busworld 2023 in Brussels (October 7-12), automotive supplier Hella, which operates under the umbrella brand FORVIA, will be presenting modular concepts as well as specially developed, customer-specific innovations for city buses and coaches. Held every two years, Busworld is the world's largest and oldest trade exhibition for the bus industry. HELLA will be located in Hall 6, Stand 634.
Headlamps for new Marcopolo G8 series
One of the highlights of Hella's presence at the trade fair is LED headlamps, which the company has put into series production for the new G8 coach series of the Brazilian bus manufacturer Marcopolo. So far, the headlamp has only been showcased in the South American region; it will thus be presented to a larger audience for the first time at Busworld 2023.
The headlamp features Hella's largest one-piece LED reflector. This makes for a striking appearance, as the headlamp is not composed of several individual parts, but appears to be cast from one piece. Special features are also the efficiency and luminosity, which are particularly noticeable when driving at night: It reduces driver fatigue and thus increases safety, while glare for oncoming vehicles is reduced by around 80 percent. In addition, the LED headlamp is extremely sustainable: Compared to the conventional halogen version, it reduces the CO2 footprint by around a third over its entire service life.
Full LED rear combination lamps
At Busworld 2023, Hella will also present full-LED rear combination lamps used by a German premium bus manufacturer. On the one hand, they show how good security can look: Large in size and at the same time energy-efficient, the rear combination lamp with five light functions is visible from afar and sets striking design elements. The LED rear combination lamp also implements a modular and thus economical concept approach. Customer- or brand-specific differentiation is ensured in particular by the different colour schemes of the rear combination lamp as well as by different printings on the light curtain.
As the first rectangular light module in the Hella portfolio, the SlimLine Bi-LED headlamp follows a highly topical design trend that is also becoming increasingly popular in the bus sector.
SlimLine Bi-LED headlamp: first rectangular light module
The SlimLine Bi-LED headlamp is not only powerful and robust, but above all sets new standards in design language. As the first rectangular light module in the Hella portfolio, it follows a highly topical design trend that is also becoming increasingly popular in the bus sector. In addition to these new distinctive design options, the headlamp bezels can also be customised in shape and colour or branded with a logo. The SlimLine module combines low-beam and high-beam headlamps in a single module. Thanks to its excellent performance, the module's light is very similar to daylight and thus increases safety and driving comfort, especially during long journeys in coaches.
