Mahle Service Solutions Sponsors MACS A/C Training Event


Mahle Service Solutions is the sole sponsor of the Saturday, May 21, “Heavy Duty Vehicle A/C Clinic” at Miramar College in San Diego. The exclusive training event for heavy duty technicians is presented by MACS (Mobile Air Conditioning Society).

The MACS clinic will help service technicians better understand component design and integration, testing and replacement, along with recommended best service practices to get the job done right the first time. In addition, the clinic will include a hands-on demonstration in the afternoon of the Mahle Service Solutions ArcticPRO ACX1180C and a giveaway of the machine to one lucky technician.

The 1180C is the OEM heavy duty commercial version of the company’s popular ACX1180. The ACX1180C features an integrated printer, three temperature sensors, four pressure sensors, a micron sensor providing greater system diagnostic capabilities and is hybrid-certified. Loaded with a 50-lb internal cylinder and factory-installed heater belt, the ACX1180C produces faster service times and higher service accuracy for heavy duty OEM-style A/C servicing.

“The A/C market is constantly changing and we are proud to support MACS in its ongoing mission to educate and train the industry,” said Andreas Huber, general manager, Mahle Service Solutions. “Due to our development of equipment specific to the heavy duty market, we understand the demands and needs that commercial vehicle technicians face on a daily basis.”

Founded in 1981, MACS is the leading nonprofit trade association for total vehicle climate and thermal management. For registration information on the May 21 event, visit, phone 215-631-7020 or email:
