Watch a Scania R 730 V8 Streamline come to life
This time-lapse video shows a Scania R 730 Streamline being built from the
ground up and subsequently delivered to the customer in Germany.
Scania trucks are built using a modular product system. This allows Scania
to build nearly any type of truck from a limited number of building blocks.
The system ensures customers get exactly the right vehicle for their
transport needs. It also means they have access to parts, as well as fast,
reliable service, no matter where they are in the world.
As soon as a truck is ordered, a number of processes begin. At Scania's
various production units, work begins on the axles, cab, engine, frame and
gearbox. Once these components are completed they are delivered to the
chassis assembly line closest to the vehicle's final destination. Scania
chassis assembly lines are located in Södertälje in Sweden, Angers in
France, São Bernardo do Campo in Brazil and in Zwolle in the Netherlands.
This video, shot on location in Zwolle, shows the assembly of a R 730 V8
truck. The process typically takes seven hours and involves some 500 people
located at 65 stations along the assembly line.
Once a truck leaves the assembly line, the process of adding any extras
items -- for example, options requested by the customer -- can begin. This
can take anything from a couple of hours to several days. It generally
takes only eight weeks from the time a truck is ordered to the time the
completed vehicle is delivered to the customer.
Here at the Nuremberg plant, the MAN Truck & Bus Competence Center, we
develop and manufacture engines for advancing mobility. For almost 100
years, trucks and buses bearing our brands have been travelling the world's
roads - powered by engines made in Nuremberg.
HTZ T-150KM with Scania DS14 V8-diesel starting -4 degrees.
I installed Scania engine in Harkov T-150K last winter because the old
engine was leaking coolant to engine oil. There's self made adaptor plate
between engine and transmission case. Scania DS14 engine was bought from
junk yard. I made it only minor repairs to the engine like replaced one
broken cylinder liner with new one and installed new nozzles.
DC16 Scania diesel running on an Adaptronic Super ECU
I made a small movie of an DC16 Scania diesel normally running on a S6
This engine dos not have a cam sensor so I programmed the 1280ECU in a way
that it is able to sense acceleration making it possible to place a cam
reset running in full sequential injection mode.
The Adaptronic ECU system can be used for tractor/truck pulling race
applications and many other applications like engine testing and
