The Technology and Maintenance Council will observe its 50th anniversary during its 2006 Annual Meeting and Transportation Technology Exhibition, set for Feb. 14-17 at the Tampa Convention Center in Florida.
The anniversary will include a presentation on the evolution of truck technology. Mack Truck President and CEO Paul Vikner and Mack Executive Vice President Steve Homcha will chronicle the evolution of truck design and maintenance from the 1950s to the present, as well as offer their insights into future vehicle technology.
The meeting also will feature a three-part primer on what fleet managers must know about 2007 diesel-powered trucks. The opening session will focus specifically on new powertrain specifications and how they will impact fleet maintenance operations. Two related technical sessions will detail diesel particulate filter technology and new sensor technology relative to 2007 diesel engines.
In addition to a wide variety of technical sessions and study group meetings, there will be a display of vehicles representing TMC’s first 50 years.
