We celebrate our 25th anniversary!

Auto Comercial Monedero was founded in 1998, and if we look back… who was going to tell us! What began as a small equipment repair shop has become over the years a large company, which operates nationally and internationally and with more than 50 workers.

The location: strategic, yes indeed.

Located in Motilla del Palancar, a strategic location near Madrid and Valencia, Monedero represents the dream of the family whose surname gives it its name.

Today, we export to more than 70 countries, we are present on all continents and we represent quality and excellence with each product we launch on the market.

Passion for work and effort has always represented us, and last September 14 we had the opportunity to celebrate everything with our workers, clients, suppliers, partners, friends and family. What a celebration!

The Casas Colgadas and the San Pablo Bridge in Cuenca were unparalleled witnesses of the event we organized at the Parador. We had the opportunity to show that Cuenca… is unique, and that Monedero is also unique.

More than 200 attendees had the opportunity to learn in depth the values that characterize us, and that we always abandon. Proximity… is there something that best defines Auto Comercial Monedero?

 

Welcome, round tables and speeches

A large part of the #TeamMonedero took the stage to make themselves known better by all attendees. Elena Cervera, our Marketing Director, opened the event by thanking all attendees for her presence, and made it clear that “we are not afraid to continue celebrating birthdays.”

In addition, we were able to enjoy the interventions of the Commercial Department: Jorge Reyes (Central-South Commercial Delegate), José María Darriba (Central-North Commercial Delegate), Juan Martínez (Export Director) and Miguel Ángel Domínguez (Commercial Director). They conveyed to us their close relationship with clients, collaborators and distributors, the importance of the brands that have trusted Monedero to distribute their products nationwide, and the powerful combination that all of them represent.

Also the interventions of the Purchasing Department: Óscar Meneses (Head of Spare Parts), Jorge Alberto Cerdán (Project Manager) and Carla Martínez (Purchasing Manager). They told us about the new developments (ambitious, we are not going to say otherwise) that will arrive at the end of this year and that we will be able to see on the market very soon.

We closed the event with the speech of our CEO, Daniel Monedero, who wanted to thank all attendees for their presence and briefly tell them how Monedero started and how they have managed to become a benchmark in the automotive sector.

Monedero and its values, the best inheritance

Daniel transmitted to us his closeness, characteristic of the entire Monedero family and also of the entire #TeamMonedero. Furthermore, all the values that have become the best heritage generation after generation, and thanks to which today, we can celebrate this anniversary, which will be the first of many more.

What is clear is that for Monedero, 25 years… taste like little!

Axle 12XE de Meritor

The Meritor brand and what it stands for

Meritor is one of the world’s leading suppliers to original equipment manufacturers. It occupies a privileged position in the after-sales market, in the transport and industrial sectors.

The origins of the brand date back to 1909, when Timken Detroit Axle was founded. Nearly a century later, the company renamed its automotive spin-off Meritor. Since that year, its logo has practically remained unchanged.

It should be noted that in 2022 Cummins Inc. announced the total acquisition of Meritor. This will position Cummins as a leading provider of integrated powertrain solutions. Especially in internal combustion and electric power application. All this, thanks to the integration of Meritor’s people, products and capabilities in axle and brake technology.

The vision of the company

The company has more than 100 years of history. Meritor has stood out for its innovative spirit, its strength in decision-making and its values.

Meritor’s vision is to become the world leader in providing advanced solutions. For what exactly? Transmission, mobility, braking and after-sales for industrial and commercial vehicles.

  • Anticipate the needs of your customers.
  • Develop innovative products with superior energy efficiency and reliability.
  • Fulfill your commitments.
  • Being socially and environmentally responsible.
  • Bet on teamwork, recognize the power of collaboration and respect different opinions.

Meritor’s “bull”

If something characterizes the brand, it is its bull logo, accompanied by the slogan “Run With The Bull”.

The Meritor logo is divided into two parts. On the one hand, the pictorial part made up of a winged bull on lightning, which is directed towards the lower right corner. On the other hand, the name of the brand ‘Meritor’ is shown in large, in white -on a black background- or in gray -on a white background-.

In this way, when the logo is displayed on the black background of the corporate website, the colors stand out. In this way, the symbology of courage, decision, speed, strength, energy and authority of the brand is reinforced.

Finally, it should be noted that the logo is usually accompanied by the slogan “Run With The Bull”. Which according to the brand itself is: “A symbol of power”. A symbol of not getting in the way because we will not stop for anything. When you run with the bull, it means something more than being farsighted. It means acting forward. Run With The Bull it’s a compromise.

Now that it is clear to you that we are Meritor Distributors, and that you can obtain the spare part you need through us… Don’t forget that we offer you a wide range of Meritor brand spare parts, such as braking system components, axles, differentials and their exploded view, among others.

Hydrogen trucks, fact or fiction?

Hydrogen is proposed by the European Union as a good alternative to gasoline or diesel, but doubts arise as to whether it is applicable to all types of vehicles.

As we mentioned in the previous blog post, in recent months there has been a heated debate on measures to achieve climate neutrality in the EU by 2050. For this reason, the European Parliament is in the midst of negotiations to bring forward a law banning the manufacture of combustion cars from 2035.

This law is causing controversy because the leading countries in the manufacture of combustion vehicles, such as Germany and Italy, are opposing it.

Among the various alternatives to diesel or gasoline is green hydrogen, a non-polluting gas obtained through the use of renewable energies. The characteristics of green hydrogen include the fact that it is the lightest chemical element in existence, can be stored and is sustainable.

The main use of green hydrogen is to be a clean fuel for vehicles and transport of all kinds, however, it is also used in other sectors and practices. It should be noted that Spain is a major producer of green hydrogen, since the largest plant in Europe is located in our country, specifically in Puertollano (Ciudad Real).

Therefore, it would be necessary to take into account the economic advantages that this could mean for Spain, because, as the gas can be stored, it can be sold to other countries. Consequently, this could benefit the national economy, while collaborating in the ecological transition of other territories.

Hydrogen engines

It appears that diesel engines may have a second life, as engineers at the University of New South Wales in Sydney have developed a system to make a diesel engine run on hydrogen. Among the advantages of this system are that the engine produces 85% less carbon dioxide emissions and is 26% more efficient than a diesel engine.

But is this applicable to all types of vehicles? To date, the vast majority of scientific tests have been carried out on passenger cars, which may lead one to think that this system may not be equally efficient in its application in heavy commercial vehicles or trucks.

Trucks with hydrogen engines?

As mentioned in the previous section, most studies to date have considered passenger cars. Therefore, doubts arise as to whether trucks could be efficient with hydrogen as fuel, since they make long-distance trips with a large load.

Although we still cannot give a clear answer to this question, some studies and projects seem to shed light on this issue.

Mercedes-Benz GenH2

At the IAA in Hannover in September 2022, the prototype of the Mercedes-Benz GenH2 truck was exhibited and, in addition, tests were carried out with customers selected by the brand. At that time, green hydrogen obtained from the Shell station near the fairgrounds was used to observe the vehicle’s operation.

Months later, in November 2022, Daimler Trucks conducted more extensive testing of its hydrogen-powered trucks on public roads, at high altitude and fully loaded.

The hydrogen truck successfully crossed the Brenner Pass, which is one of Europe’s main freight arteries. Daimler is working to demonstrate the viability of the Mercedes-Benz GenH2 and is aiming for a range of more than 1,000 kilometers.

So far, the tests have yielded several conclusions. First, that the performance is comparable to that of a conventional diesel truck. Secondly, that the truck using liquid hydrogen has a longer range than those using gaseous hydrogen. The reason for this last characteristic is that liquid hydrogen has a higher energy density, relative to volume, than gaseous hydrogen. And so trucks using liquid hydrogen do not have to be refueled as frequently.

Among Daimler Trucks’ objectives is to continue to conduct further tests in mountainous terrain during 2023, with the aim of improving its trucks and starting series production as soon as possible.

Ocean’: Toyota innovation

Toyota’s North American subsidiary has developed, together with the US-based Kenworth Truck Company, an electric truck powered by hydrogen fuel cells. The truck is a Class 8 T680 FCEV based on the Toyota-Kenworth T680 FCEF truck.

The results have shown that this system is comparable in terms of efficiency and range to diesel engines. It was found that it achieved a range of almost 500 kilometers with a full tank and a full load without refueling.

Thus, there are indications that this new technology can replace fossil fuels in trucks and, in this way, achieve the objectives in the fight against climate change and pollution.

The ‘Keyou’ truck

German company Keyou has converted a combustion engine of an 18-ton truck to use hydrogen as fuel instead of diesel. Behind this project is the former BMW engineer, who has experience in R&D projects to use hydrogen in BMW cars.

In addition, Keyou announces total costs close to those of diesel, with a useful life of more than 700,000 kilometers and a range of 500 kilometers, all without CO2 emissions.

Nikola’s trucks

While in the case of cars, efforts are focused on battery electric vehicles, the use of hydrogen fuel cells seems to be increasingly gaining ground in freight transport.

However, hydrogen still faces a number of challenges, from production to storage. To meet these challenges, Nikola is proposing a possible solution to this problem: mobile hydrogen generators capable of refueling other fuel cell vehicles.

In this way, Nikola has announced a hydrogen truck that feeds other fuel cell industrial vehicles thanks to a mobile hydrogen feeder.

Conclusions

The latest projects and studies seem to indicate that the use of hydrogen fuel cells is a good alternative to the use of fossil fuels, as they maintain their efficiency and autonomy. However, there are still barriers in terms of production, storage, logistics and infrastructure.

Firstly, for hydrogen to be an environmentally friendly solution, it must be green hydrogen, i.e., produced from renewable energy, which is rare.

On the other hand, there are limitations in terms of distribution and storage of hydrogen, because it is a highly flammable gas with a very low density.

Finally, there is the problem of logistics, since hydrogen refueling sites would have to be created every 100 km. In addition, everything seems to indicate that refueling time would be longer than for diesel. The latter could delay the delivery of goods and lead to the need for a larger fleet to carry out the journeys.

In conclusion, we are getting closer and closer to the changeover, but we must continue to work on minimizing the drawbacks. The main objective is to make transportation as sustainable as possible in the future, without losing efficiency or vehicle autonomy along the way.

Vehicles in the transport of goods

Discover which vehicles are used in the transport of goods, as well as their main characteristics… And become an #ExpertoMonedero!

Light vehicles, heavy vehicles -commercial and passenger cars-, special and agricultural vehicles… among others! We are sure that on more than one occasion you have doubted when classifying them, as it is sometimes difficult to differentiate them and remember which characteristics define them.

In this post we will focus on the types of vehicles used for the transport of goods and we will talk about their characteristics and functions. Are you interested? read on!

What they are, types and classification

Vehicles used to transport goods have an engine and at least four wheels. In addition, they can be of different types and have different characteristics. They can be light or heavy vehicles -depending on their load- and are: the truck, the van, the van, the vehicle derived from the passenger car and the adaptable mixed vehicle.

Before advancing in the article, it is important to remember what a light vehicle and a heavy vehicle are. The Ministry of Transport, Mobility and Urban Agenda defines them as follows (2023):

  • Light vehicle: “A motor vehicle specially equipped for the transport of goods whose maximum authorized weight does not exceed 6 tons, or which, even when exceeding this weight, has a payload capacity not exceeding 3.5 tons”.
  • Heavy vehicle: “It is a motor vehicle specially equipped for the transport of goods whose maximum authorized weight exceeds 6 tons and whose payload capacity exceeds 3.5 tons. Tractor units shall be considered as heavy vehicles when they have a towing capacity of more than 3.5 tons of load”.

Classification

Vehicles for the transport of goods are classified in CATEGORY N, which includes vans and trucks. These are motor vehicles specially designed and manufactured for the transport of goods by land.

Thus, the classification they receive according to their weight is as follows:

  • N1. With Maximum Authorized Mass (MA)M of 3,500 kg -including fuel, driver, passengers and merchandise-.
  • N2. With MAM between 3,500 and 12,000 kg.
  • N3. Over 12,000 kg.

In addition, it should be mentioned that the category corresponding to trucks that use both trailers and semi-trailers is CATEGORY O. However, on this occasion, we will not emphasize these, even though they can also transport goods, since trailers and semi-trailers do not have an engine.

Truck MAM

Among its characteristics we can highlight that it has a cabin with a capacity of up to 9 seats, which is not integrated in the rest of the bodywork. Depending on their load, they can be classified as N1, N2 or N3 and can be light or heavy vehicles.

Depending on their structure, trucks can be rigid, articulated, road train and mega-trucks. Thus, depending on the type of goods they transport, we can speak of canvas trucks, open platform trucks, refrigerated trucks, heat trucks, tank trucks, closed trucks, car carriers and cage trucks.

Van

It is a four-wheeled automobile whose cab is integrated into the rest of the bodywork, unlike the previous truck. It is intended for the transport of goods and can be a light or heavy vehicle, depending on its load.

Vans have a rigid separator made of sheet metal, which divides the part where the goods are housed from that of the seats. Removing the separator is considered a major reform in this type of vehicle, so it must be considered by a specialist to avoid accidents or problems due to the load.

Inside these vehicles there can be no bolted furniture and all cargo has to be secured with pulleys to avoid unforeseen events.

Examples of vans or vans for goods transport: refrigerated or isothermal vans, delivery vans, parcel vans, etc.

Tourism derivate

This motor vehicle is derived from the passenger car, of which it retains the bodywork, but is intended for the transport of goods. Thus, it should be noted that it has a single row of seats.

The vehicle derived from the passenger car has a separation panel between the load and the seats, the rear part being exclusively for the transport of material or goods.

Adaptable mixed vehicle

This type of vehicle is prepared for the transport of goods and people, either simultaneously or not, although they must be properly separated from each other by a safety grille when carrying the load.

The safety grille must be easy to put on and take off and it is not compulsory to wear it when going for the ITV inspection. In addition to this, the load must always be secured with straps to avoid unforeseen events or accidents.

The vehicle can only carry a maximum of 9 people, including the driver. Thus, it should be noted that in this vehicle it is possible to replace the load, either partially or totally, by people, by adding a seat.

The aftermarket sector is boomming

The spare parts distribution grew 15% in the first quarter of 20

The National Association of Equipment, Parts and Accessories Dealers (ANCERA) highlights in its survey of the first quarter of 2023 the significant increase in independent parts distribution. In addition, the report highlights that around 95% of the spare parts dealers have reported to the association to have increased their sales during that period.

This is positive news for a sector that is currently being affected by the shortage of raw materials, rising energy and logistics costs, as well as the war in Ukraine. These factors are causing a lot of uncertainty in the aftermarket.

Do you want to know all the news in the aftermarket sector? Don’t miss our post and become an #ExpertoMonedero!

What is aftermarket?

First of all, a clear and concise definition of the term aftermarket should be provided, as sometimes even professionals may have doubts about what it covers.

The term aftermarket refers to the secondary market for vehicle parts and accessories. This sector covers everything from the manufacture and installation of components to their distribution and sale.

Thanks to it, vehicle owners can maintain and customize their cars with high quality parts, but at a more economical price than that of the original car manufacturers.

Now that you know what the aftermarket is and what it comprises, you may wonder… What are the short and medium-term prospects? Read on!

Trends

As we highlighted at the beginning of this post, spare parts distribution grew by 15% during the first quarter of 2023. Likewise, all forecasts seem to indicate that this growth will continue throughout 2023, but in a much more moderate way.

The ANCERA study forecasts that the sector will grow by 8% during the second quarter and end the year with an increase of 7%. However, these figures can only be confirmed once this period has elapsed. Even so, everything seems to indicate that 2023 will be positive for the aftermarket sector.

During the meeting held at the end of March by the Spare Parts Commission of the Spanish Association of Automotive Suppliers (SERNAUTO), the trends and opportunities in the aftermarket sector were analyzed. At the meeting, Harpreet Singh, partner of L.E.K. Consulting, presented the trends affecting the aftermarket in the medium and long term.

According to Harpreet Singh, the following factors could be decisive for the coming months in this market:

  1. The penetration of electric vehicles and Advanced Driving Assistance Systems (ADAS).
  2. The rise of connectivity.
  3. The change in consumer preferences.

In turn, during the workshop held at the SERNAUTO meeting, other trends for the aftermarket were analyzed such as:

4. Synthetic fuels.
5. Distribution through e-commerce platforms.
6. The importance and need for training as a tool for brand positioning in workshops.

Will these macro trends be implemented? Everything seems to point to yes, however, due to the uncertainty in the aftermarket, the business opportunities proposed for the medium term are being reconsidered for the long term.

As we mentioned at the beginning of this blog, the aftermarket sector is suffering great uncertainty due to several factors such as the shortage of raw materials, the increase in energy and logistics costs, as well as the war in Ukraine.

Where we come from?

But… What factors and trends have led us to the current situation in the aftermarket world? The McKinsey report, announced in 2017 what would be the trends for the coming years in the sector, which have been (and will continue to be) fulfilled in the medium term. These are:

  • The rise of the Asian market, which is characterized by rapid development and very competitive prices.
  • The importance of connectivity and data exchange.
  • Independent after-sales. Increasingly, manufacturers are working towards having their own independent distribution networks.
  • Increase in online services. Thanks to the development of new technologies, companies in the sector can offer their services through digital channels, streamlining processes.
  • Increased price competitiveness, due to the growth of the sector and the development of business in Asia, a country that offers very competitive prices.

Conclusion

Everything seems to indicate that the growth of the first quarter will continue throughout the year, albeit more slowly.

Thus, the macro trends that will affect the distribution of spare parts have been analyzed and it has been possible to foresee that there will be a slowdown of these due to the situation of uncertainty that the sector is suffering.

Monedero has developed, through reverse engineering processes, Caterpillar C18, C15 and C12 application cylinder heads, which are highly demanded by the market.

In addition, in the b2b web platform of Auto Comercial Monedero you can find the Caterpillar C18, C15 and C12 application cylinder heads both in their bare and complete version -assembled in our own facilities-.

 

  • The Caterpillar C18 cylinder head has the following references: 22012000016 for the naked version and 22012100001 for the complete one. These are equivalent to the original part number.
  • The Caterpillar C15 application cylinder head has these part numbers: 22012000015 for the naked version and 22012100002 for the complete version. Both are equivalent to the original part numbers 2454324 | 2811640 | 2811640 | 2811640 | 2811640 | 2811640 | 2811640 | 2811640.
  • The Caterpillar C12 application cylinder head has as part numbers: 22012000017 for the bare version and 22012100004 for the complete version. These are equivalent to the original part numbers 0R8883 | 10R8884 | 1323208 | 1482133 | 1482144 | 1482145 | 2166951.

They apply to C18, C15 and C12 engine types respectively. These cylinder heads manufactured by Monedero are designed for industrial diesel engines with application on Caterpillar machinery or engines.

Application

Caterpillar C18 engines are indicated for mechanical earth drilling applications, due to their power. Here we could highlight the Caterpillar MD600 Drill, ideal for application in mining, quarrying and heavy construction works.

Thus, Caterpillar C15 engines has a wide application in various industries such as agriculture (agricultural tractors, harvesters, irrigation equipment), construction (cranes, paving and transport equipment, shovels and draglines), mining, etc. Thus, this engine is one of the most popular and versatile of the brand.

As in the previous case, Caterpillar C12 engines can be used in various industries. Among these, the Cat C12 marine propulsion diesel engine brand stands out, which, thanks to its technology, becomes a high-performance ecological engine and allows excellent fuel economy. As a curiosity, it is worth mentioning that this type of engine can also be applied to recreational or commercial vessels.

Trucks

Regarding the application of C18, C15 and C12 engines in trucks, we can find a great variety of brands and models. All of them are especially used in the United States where they have a great importance in the automotive sector. In the following, we will name some of the examples of application in the most popular trucks of the sector.

Kenworth W900 TurboMs Cat C18

Cat C18 engines are used in Kenworth trucks, which are mainly used in Mexico, where they are manufactured, and in the United States. One of the models that uses this engine is the Kenworth W900 TurboMS. The Kenworth W900 models are a true trucking legend, since their creation in the 1960s, they have occupied a very privileged place in the lives of U.S. and Mexican haulers.

The Kenworth W900 model is the favorite of North American trucks drivers. For this reason, it has been impossible to withdraw it from the market, despite the company’s efforts to offer the most updated versions. Thus, it has been decided not to completely end its production, but to do so in limited units.

Kenworth T600 6NZ Cat C15

The Cat C15 engine is also widely used in Kenworth trucks. One of the best known models in which it is used is the Kenworth T600, which is one of the most popular models among Americans.

The Kenworth T600 began to be manufactured during the 80’s, representing a breakthrough for the industry as it became the first aerodynamic model. Among its advantages, it can be highlighted that, due to its sloping hood, it was 22% more fuel efficient than those with conventional straight hoods.

In 1994, this model received the National Award for the Advancement of Motor Vehicle Research and Development from the U.S. Department of Transportation. This award recognized the T600’s advances in safety, energy savings and reduced environmental impact.

In the wake of this truck, the company has developed new versions such as the acclaimed T680, T680 FCEV and T680E.

Mechanical drilling machinery

As mentioned in the previous sections, Kenworth trucks are used especially in the United States and Mexico, but not on the European continent.

Thus, in Europe, the C18, C15 and C12 cylinder heads are used applied to their respective engines in mechanical drilling, agriculture, mining, forestry, etc. machines.

In the following, we will talk about one of the most modern and powerful drilling machines of the Caterpillar brand, which uses the C18 engine.

 

MD6200 Drill

The new MD6200 drill is designed to offer maximum efficiency in bench drilling from 10 to 12 meters, standing out because it allows the application of the drilling angle for blasting with augers. This makes it the ideal drill for mining, quarrying or heavy construction applications.

Among the advantages of the MD6200 drill is that it occupies a much smaller transport space than similar drills in its category, which means that it can be transported by road with the mast installed. Its compact design allows it to be moved more easily and quickly, reducing travel time between holes.

In addition, it withstands the most demanding working conditions and is optimized for single-pass drilling.

Types of engine pumps for heavy industrial vehicles

In this post we explain the different pumps that you can find in the engine of your industrial vehicle or truck, as well as their functions and some possible breakdowns.

The world of mechanics is very wide, because the automotive sector is constantly evolving as new products and innovations are constantly being introduced. Therefore, if you work in this sector, you must be continuously training.

In this post we will delve into one of the vital components for commercial vehicle engines: pumps. If you want to know the types that exist and the breakdowns that can arise… this is your article!

In #ACMonedero we are experts in the automotive sector and the #EquipoMonedero is here to solve your doubts… Keep reading and become an expert!

Types of pumps

In this post we will focus on the different types of pumps used in a industrial vehicle engine, their functions and the breakdowns they can suffer. It is important to specify this because not all vehicles have the same types of pumps in their engines.

In a industrial vehicle engine we will find: the oil pump, the water pump, the injection pump (in the engine), the AdBlue pump and the clutch pump.

Oil pump

The oil pump is responsible for lubricating all the internal parts of an engine. Due to its importance, manufacturers strive to ensure that they are long-lasting to avoid breakdowns, so it is quite difficult for them to fail.

Even so, it is important to emphasize that, in order to help it function correctly, it is vital to always maintain the correct oil level.

Water pump

The water pump, also known as antifreeze pump, circulates the antifreeze in the engine. A failure in the water pump would lead to excessive heating of the engine of our vehicle. In the most serious cases, this would result in engine failure due to overheating.

Injection pump (on engine)

The electronic air injection pump is responsible for sending air to the injection system. If this part suffers a failure it would manifest very noticeable symptoms, because the vehicle would start to shudder and would give error in the system or V2.

Hydraulic pump

The hydraulic pump is responsible for keeping the steering wheel steering “smooth”. If this component were to fail, the driver would quickly notice it, because there would be a lot of noise when turning the steering wheel. In the most severe cases, the steering wheel could even become stiff and the steering wheel would become immobile, making it impossible to move.

AdBlue pump

The AdBlue pump is a device in the anti-pollution system that is responsible for administering the AdBlue additive to the exhaust gases to ensure compliance with the European Euro6 pollution standard.

When this pump malfunctions, a fault code can be displayed on the light display. The consequences can be diverse, but the most common is that the vehicle expels too many polluting fumes to the outside. This, in turn, could result in a penalty for non-compliance with European regulations.

Clutch pump

The clutch pump is located in the clutch pedal system and is responsible for making the clutch pedal “smoother” and therefore easier to shift gears.

If the clutch pump malfunctions, this can cause problems when shifting gears. Feeling the clutch pedal slack and hearing an unusual noise in the engine are some of the indications that something is wrong with your clutch pump.

To avoid premature wear of the clutch pump, some measures should be taken such as shifting gears smoothly, not leaving the clutch halfway in and avoiding frequent acceleration of the engine.

Auto Comercial Monedero: 25 years of history

Monedero celebrates its quarter century with the largest investment in its history in the development of new products.

Auto Comercial Monedero was born in 1998 in Motilla del Palancar as a small repair shop for engines, gearboxes and differentials. At that time, the team consisted of two mechanics, an apprentice and a spare parts salesman.

At the beginning, the workshop was managed by José Luis Monedero, father of the current manager, Daniel Monedero, who took over the management in 2004.

Brand distribution

In 2005, with the evolution of the company, they moved to renovated facilities (where they still are today, although after several renovations and extensions). Furthermore, Monedero decided to travel to trade fairs and try to work with alternative brands, the first one being Kaçmazlar. It was in 2009, when this manufacturer gave him the exclusive distribution of its products for all of Spain, which was a before and after regarding this line of business.

In 2010, when Monedero became the official distributor of Meritor, the first OEM brand. In addition, we managed to be among the top distributors of the brand, which strengthened Monedero as a distributor of spare parts nationwide.

Official ZF Service

In the year 2017, Auto Comercial Monedero is established as an Official ZF Service, which involves not only the distribution of official ZF spare parts, but also technical service, repair, training, etc. From this point on, not only the distribution, but also the after-sales service is taken over.

Thus, Auto Comercial Monedero has access to manuals, programming and technical training. Daniel Monedero emphasizes that “thanks to being an Official ZF Service, they provide technical assistance and maintenance to their customers, which translates into increased confidence on their part”.

The rise of Monedero products

Over the years, Monedero begins to offer its own products to nearby countries under a stronger strategy. Thus, in 2014, the first Monedero product was launched: a conical pair.

For the development of this reference, a significant investment was made, which was amortized shortly after, resulting in a complete success for the brand. The fact is that all brands had products that broke down and often there were no spare parts for these products on the alternative market. Therefore, this was an important competitive advantage for the company with respect to its competitors.

Auto Comercial Monedero relies on ITECAM, the technology center of Castilla-La Mancha and the Industrial Technology Park of the University of Albacete for the development of its products. Its commitment to investment in reverse engineering has led it to develop a wide range of its own products.

Among them, we can highlight the launch of the Scania DT12 application Monoblock in 2018 and the MAN D2066 application monoblock engine cylinder head in 2019. Of the latter, more than 1,000 are marketed per year… making it a great success and paying off its investment in the first year!

Internationalization

Due to the unstoppable success of Monedero products, it was decided to carry out an internationalization strategy. Trade missions began in 2013, visiting countries such as Colombia, Chile, Peru, Romania, Cuba, Ecuador and Morocco to publicize its own products abroad and establish synergies. In addition, a commitment was made to international trade fairs, the first one being in 2016.

It was in 2017, when the export department was created with the aim of defining strategies and giving importance to the internationalization process within the company.

Currently, thanks to the establishment of effective strategies, Auto Comercial Monedero operates in the five continents and is in more than 70 countries.

Future objectives

Monedero is starting to include other product segments for passenger cars or vans, with the aim of continuing to focus on expanding its portfolio of brands such as V.I.L. cylinder heads and industrial application products. For this reason, in 2023, coinciding with the celebration of its 25th anniversar, it will make the largest investment in the development of new products in its history.

At the same time, it is committed to investing in R&D to make a major technological change, because it is working on the development and digitization of warehouses.

Its eagerness to follow the latest technological trends led it last year to the creation of the new platform and online store for professionals (B2B) and among its goals is to increase sales through this channel, to work for the automation of processes.

All this thanks to the work of the #TeamMonedero, qualified professionals who bring their talent to make you go far.

Discover the differences between long block and short block

Become an expert and master the characteristics and differences of the different engine blocks.

If you work in the sector, or you are passionate about mechanics, you have surely heard about the long block and short block. These have a relevant role in all vehicles and, although you may know them in broad strokes, you may still have some doubts about their differences and characteristics.

But… don’t worry! The #TeamMonedero explains in this post the main differences so that you have it clear. We are experts in components for heavy and light commercial vehicles, special vehicles and buses. In this section, we will tell you everything you need to know, keep reading!

What they are, differences and characteristics

The engine block is a cast iron or aluminum structure in which all the parts of an engine are located. Thus, when you order a block (also known as a naked block) in the workshop, you should know that you are only getting the structure and, on it, you will have to assemble the rest of the elements to complete the engine.

However, when we talk about short and long blocks, the main difference lies in the number of parts included in each of them. Do you want to know more? Don’t miss the following sections!

Short block

The short block or short block engine is the lower part of the engine. It includes the cylinder block, where the combustion chambers are located, and has different individual parts such as the crankshaft, the camshaft, the engine equipment (piston + cylinder liners), the bushings, the cooler and the oil pump.

Among the advantages of a short block we can highlight that its initial price is cheaper and that it allows greater customization. However, among its disadvantages, we can highlight that it requires a longer installation time, since the different components must be checked and assembled by the customer.

Below, you can see a picture of one of the most sold short blocks: the Mercedes Benz OM651 short block with reference 10010300061, which you can find in our b2b web platform.

MB OM651LA short block with reference 10010300061.
MB OM651LA short block with reference 10010300061.

Long block

The long block engine includes both the short block, which is the lower part of the engine, and the upper part.

Thus, the long block will include components such as the cylinder head and sometimes camshaft plus rocker arms. Even so, it should be noted that the engine would not be complete, because it would still have to add some components such as the fuel system and the intake and exhaust manifolds, among others.

Among the advantages of a long block we can highlight that the parts included are already adjusted, which also saves time. However, it has some disadvantages such as, the initial price is higher and you can not customize it, which may lead many to prefer the short block.

Below is a picture of one of the best-selling long blocks: the MAN D2676 long block with reference number 20010400018, which you can find on our b2b web platform.

MAN 2676 long block with reference number 20010400018.

Conclusion

Now that you know what they are, their characteristics, advantages and disadvantages, you will have the opportunity to make better decisions. You will be able to evaluate what you prioritize when buying an engine block, if you prefer it assembled or if you prefer its customization. In addition, you will take into account the time you have available, as well as your budget.

Crankshaft OM471LA Mercedes Benz application

Monedero launched the crankshaft in 2021 and since then it has become one of the brand’s TOP products.

Crankshaft OM471LA

In 2021, Monedero launched a first version of the OM471LA crankshaft, a product in high demand in the aftermarket. Until then, no aftermarket company could offer an alternative to the original references, which was really up to customers’ requirements.

Monedero, through reverse engineering processes, uses exhaustive analysis to ensure the highest quality and efficiency of its products. The objective is to provide its customers with new launches and exclusive references with the quality of the original parts, but at a very competitive price.

For these reasons, and through collaboration with OEM manufacturers, the best alternative to the original Mercedes crankshaft was launched on the market. The launch was a complete success, becoming today one of the TOP products of the Monedero brand; being one of the most sold references in the year 2022.

Equivalent references

The reference OM471LA crankshaft coin box is 10011000051. This is equivalent to the original Mercedes Benz references: A4710300101, A47110300201 and A4710300401.

The engine types in which the crankshaft can be applied are: 471900, 471902, 471906, 471909, 471919, 471922, 471926, 471937, 471944, 471945, 471946, 471951 and 471961.

Finally, it should be noted that the OM471LA crankshaft for Mercedes Benz application can be mounted on the following vehicles: Actros MP4/5, Arocs and Antos… Want to know more about them? Here’s why they are so special!

Mercedes Benz Actros truck

The OM471LA crankshaft for Mercedes Benz application is compatible with Actros MP4/5 trucks, the latest versions of the classic Astro heavy truck series.

The first model was launched in 1996, coinciding with the 100th anniversary of Daimler’s first truck. Its success has been such that, over the years, the model has endured and new versions of it have been launched, in line with new market needs.

Over the past 27 years, the truck series has won numerous awards, with each generation of Actros being named International Truck of the Year. In this way, it has become the truck series that has received this distinction the most.

Today, the five generations of Actros are an example in the truck industry, because they have set a benchmark in the development of electronic, efficient and modern trucks.

The OM471LA crankshaft can be mounted on the MP4 and MP5 series, which represented a radical change with respect to the previous series. These trucks incorporated more innovative designs, which established the basis for the design of these trucks. They inspired the entire truck program of the brand during the following years.

Hydrogen engines: the future of transport?

The European Parliament is in the midst of negotiations to push forward the law banning the production of combustion cars after 2035.

In recent months there has been a heated debate about the end date for light-duty combustion vehicles in the European Union, with the aim of achieving climate neutrality in the EU by 2050. While a couple of weeks ago, the European Parliament passed this initiative with 340 votes in favor, 279 against and 21 abstentions, now Germany is paralyzing the law.

The misgivings of Germany, the leading automobile manufacturer in the European Union, were more than evident in the negotiations. In turn, the rejection of the law has been supported by Italy, a country that is also a major player in the sector.

Both countries want to approve additional safeguards to protect the future of cars that use clean synthetic fuels in their engines. That is, fuels produced with water and CO2, which do not generate a carbon footprint. So, finally, Germany and Italy have achieved the commitment that in 2026 the European Commission will prepare a proposal so that in 2035 vehicles with combustion engines can be registered, as long as they are made of synthetic fuels with zero polluting emissions.

Among the various options, we find a gas that can be used as a fuel, becoming the alternative to diesel: green hydrogen. So, at this point in the article you may have some doubts… what is green hydrogen and how is it obtained? What are its advantages? Read on and #BecomeExpert!

Hydrogen as a fuel

Hydrogen is proposed by the European Union as a good alternative to gasoline or diesel. This is the first element of the periodic table, making it the lightest chemical element that exists. Among its characteristics, it can be highlighted that it can be stored and does not generate polluting emissions, which makes it a very good option as a fuel.

Due to its nature, this chemical element is never found alone, but is mixed with other chemical elements such as oxygen or carbon. For this reason, the human being cannot take hydrogen directly from nature, having to manufacture it. It is precisely the manufacturing method that determines whether hydrogen is polluting or not, hence the distinction between gray hydrogen and green hydrogen.

What is green hydrogen?

The so-called “green hydrogen” is that which is generated by renewable energies. This makes it a clean and sustainable fuel that could be key to the future of the automobile industry.

Among the main advantages of green hydrogen we can highlight its sustainability, since this gas, being generated by renewable energies, does not pollute in its production process. Something that must be taken into account in the generation of “gray hydrogen”.

Its production follows the following steps:

  1. The raw material is seawater, through which hydrogen is produced by electrolysis.
  2. Secondly, the electricity produced by renewable energies breaks down the water molecule.
  3. The electrolysis process separates the molecular components, including hydrogen.
  4. The gas is stored in special containers for later use.

The main use of green hydrogen is as a clean fuel for vehicles and transport of all kinds. However, it can also be used as an explosive, fertilizer, synthetic fuel and industrial heat. In addition, surplus hydrogen can be exported to other countries, earning an economic benefit, while facilitating the transition of those territories to a more sustainable life.

At present, the largest green hydrogen plant in Europe is located in Spain, owned by Fertiberia. It is located in Puertollano (Ciudad Real) and has become the largest plant on the continent by size, which will generate 100% clean and renewable energy.

As we mentioned at the beginning of this post, the European Parliament intends to pass a law banning the manufacture of combustion cars from 2035 onwards. Moreover, this type of engines will not be allowed to be used from 2050 onwards.

What will happen to my vehicle? Will I have to buy another one or will I be able to adapt it? Well, according to several studies, everything seems to indicate that diesel engines may have a second life.

As some specialized articles report, engineers at the University of New South Wales in Sydney have discovered a system to make a diesel engine run on hydrogen. It should be noted that with this system the engineers have managed to make the engine produce up to 85% less carbon dioxide emissions. This is mainly thanks to the development of a hybrid direct fuel injection system, which allows hydrogen and diesel to be injected into the engine. Therefore, although it does not completely eliminate the use of diesel as a fuel, it would reduce its use by 90% and, therefore, it would pollute much less. Thus, with this hybrid system, efficiency is improved by more than 26% compared to the diesel engine.

Finally, it is also of vital importance to emphasize that, thanks to this system, less pure hydrogen is used, which translates into hydrogen that is much cheaper to obtain.

The future of hydrogen as a fuel for vehicles is still full of challenges, but nevertheless, researchers are still working to commercialize this system in the coming months.

Monedero launches new oil pans

Auto Comercial Monedero launches two new oil pans, compatible with Mercedes Benz and Scania brands.

The leading company in the automotive sector has developed two oil pans, references that are among the most demanded in the sector in recent months. One of them is for Mercedes Benz 0M936 application and the other for Scania D13-DC16 application.

Both have been developed and manufactured by #EquipoMonedero, under the strictest quality standards. Thus, offering a more economical price to customers compared to original parts.Interested? Read on for more information.

Mercedes Benz OM936 application

Auto Comercial Monedero has developed an oil pan for Mercedes Benz application, specifically for the OM936 engine and compatible with its versions: 935912, 935913, 935914, 935915, 935916, 936910, 936912, 936916, 936972 and 936973. Therefore, it can be applied to Actros, Atego and Arocs vehicles.

The reference is 10016300011 and the equivalent references to the Mercedes Benz originals are A9360102313 and A9360103713.

Application Scania D13-DC16

Another product developed by Auto Comercial Monedero is the Scania application oil pan, for the DC13 or DC16 engine.

This can be used in the P/G/R/T series trucks (since 2003) and trucks with the L/P/G/R/S series (since 2016).

The oil pan part number is 40016300001, the equivalent of the original Scania part numbers 2102851, 2840476, 2362030 and 2840476.

The oil pan

If you’re passionate about mechanics, you’ve probably wondered at some point what an oil pan is, what functions it has and what kind of breakdowns it could suffer. So… Keep reading and become an #ExpertoMonedero!

The oil pan is a sheet steel or aluminum alloy component, which is located under the crankshaft and connecting rods. It closes the engine block. This part has a concave shape, which is very useful for collecting the oil that lubricates the mechanical components in motion.

It is important to note that the oil sump is used in four-stroke engines. However, it is not present in two-stroke engines, because in these the oil is supplied together with the gasoline.

Functions

The oil sump has three main functions. Firstly, it collects the oil from the engine and ensures optimum lubrication of the vehicle’s moving parts. Subsequently, the oil is sucked by the oil pump and returns to the engine, repeating this process cyclically.

Secondly, the oil pan helps to cool the oil. This is vitally important, as it allows the oil to cool before repeating its path again, preventing overheating.

Finally, the oil pan is responsible for providing rigidity to the engine block. This is because the crankcase houses the connecting rods, pistons and crankshaft, preventing these parts from coming into contact with debris.

Possible failures

The oil pan must be of good quality and maintained in good condition, otherwise it may fail.

Due to its location in the lower part of the engine, it can suffer cracks or ruptures and, consequently, oil leaks. In addition, if it were to break, the engine could run out of lubricant and overheat due to the friction of the parts.

Another of the most common breakdowns is when the seals, which join it to the rest of the engine components, fail and leakage occurs.

It is also possible that, if the temperature of the oil increases excessively, gases may be produced, which would contribute to an increase in the pressure inside the oil pan and cause leaks. To avoid this, the most modern engines have a built-in depressurization or breathing valve.

Finally, it should be added that if it is not possible to remedy the faults described above, the crankcase should be replaced with a new one. Although this is a simple task, it must be carried out by a professional, because the bolts must have a specific tightening torque indicated by the manufacturer, and the gasket must be installed with precision. In this way, we will avoid problems in the engine and, consequently, in the vehicle.

B2B web platform

Monedero’s new B2B web platform has more than 1 million references. Through it, you can consult the references you need, since the search engine allows you to search both the product name and the original and OEM reference number.

Monedero improves the block for Scania DT12

Auto Comercial Monedero has developed a new version of Scania’s DT12 block with the purpose of increasing its strength and durability.

The leading company in the automotive sector has optimized one of the best-selling in its catalog, the Scania’s DT12 engine block. This new version is characterized by a new engine block cover, which softens the curvature of the previous version, increasing the resistance and life of the product!

The new release can be found on the Auto Comercial Monedero B2B web platform by searching for the Monedero reference number: 40010000001. This reference is equivalent to the original Scania references: 1424706, 1540323, 1851982, 2027585, 1425318, 1720096 and 2055383.

The new version of the block is compatible with Scania P/G/R/T series truck models, Irizar PB and Century buses, as well as Scania K/F/N series buses.

The bench cover

Scania’s first DT12 block was launched in 2018 and has been in constant evolution ever since. In the latest version, it debuts a new design of the engine bed cover, in which the curvature of previous models is softened, resulting in greater strength.

The engine main cover is one of the most relevant elements in the lubrication circuit. It is located just below the engine block, but always above the crankcase. The crankshaft is also located inside the part.

Among its functions, we can highlight the solidity it offers to the engine and the containment of the force generated by the crankshaft rotation. It also acts as a retaining wall for the oil.

Due to the important role it plays within the engine mechanism, it is of vital importance that it is resistant to avoid as much wear as possible due to the forces and high temperatures.

Although it is not usual, it can suffer breakdowns due to the passage of time or due to factory defects, such as the loss of liquids responsible for lubrication and cooling of the engine. This could lead to engine failure.

Monedero, we have what it takes to take you far.

 

Do you know the types of gearboxes?

Become an expert and master the characteristics, differences, advantages and disadvantages of the gearbox.

If you are an automechanics enthusiast, you have surely been interested in gearboxes at some point. You may wonder… Which one is better? What breakdowns can they cause depending on their typology?

Don’t worry because at Monedero we are experts in components for heavy and light commercial vehicles, special vehicles and buses. And in this section, we will tell you everything you need to know about one of the most important parts of your vehicle’s powertrain: the gearbox.

 

The gearbox

We know it is very important, but few people really know how it works or the wide variety of typologies, not to mention the advantages and disadvantages of each one!

We could define the gearbox as a system that takes care of transferring the engine torque to the driving wheels in an effective way. This means that the rotational speed of the engine is transcribed into different speeds for the wheels of the vehicle.

Gearbox types for trucks and buses

One might think that all vehicles can have the same types of gearboxes, but this is not the case. While it is common for buses, coaches and trucks to have a similar gearbox mechanism, in the case of passenger cars things are different.

For this reason, in this post we will talk exclusively about those used in trucks. These are: mechanical, automated and automatic.

 

·      Mechanical gearbox:

A truck with a manual gearbox requires the driver to change the gear ratio. This is done when the driver depresses the clutch and moves the gearshift in order to adapt the power of the truck to the speed at which it is traveling.

Therefore, they need the clutch pedal to disengage the truck from the gearbox. In this way, the motive power is disconnected with the gearbox. If this were not the case, when shifting gears, the pinions or synchromesh could break.

Today, it is still quite common for passenger cars and light vehicles to use manual gearboxes. However, when it comes to heavy vehicles, automated or automatic gearboxes are the most common. In recent years, automatic gearboxes have become very popular, due to all the advantages they offer… Do you want to know more? Keep on reading.

    • Advantages of the mechanical gearbox

Because there are still many more used manual gearboxes, it is easier to find a replacement if you do not want to buy a new one. Therefore, the buyer will have a wide range to choose from and the purchase is likely to be more economical.

 

    • Disadvantages of mechanical gearboxes

Mechanical gearboxes are prone to more breakdowns than automated and automatic gearboxes. Among the most common breakdowns we find the breakage of synchronizers.

The synchronizers are responsible for braking the shafts so that they do not wear out and break. This failure is a great danger, since it can cause that “the gear does not engage” or “a gear remains engaged” and cannot be removed. This could lead to more mechanical breakdowns and therefore a loss of safety for the driver and the truck driver.

Mechanical gearbox MERCEDES BENZ G155-G180
Mechanical gearbox MERCEDES BENZ G155-G180
  • Automated gearbox (also known as piloted or robotized):

The automated gearbox has a similar physical structure to the manual gearbox. However, it is controlled by a computer that makes gear changes possible without the driver’s intervention.

Automated gearboxes have an electro-pneumatic control unit that is responsible for carrying out the gear changes requested or programmed by the driver. This same control unit is responsible for clutch engagement and, therefore, there is no need to depress the clutch. As a curiosity, it should be noted that they do not have a clutch pedal, however, they do have an internal clutch managed by the electro-pneumatic control unit.

    • Advantages of the automated gearbox

What has it meant for a truck driver to switch from a manual to an automated gearbox? We have the answer: comfort and lightness.

Drivers no longer have to shift gears, so the truck shifts gears as needed, which makes driving easier and aids fuel management.

For example, when the truck is climbing a hill and is heavily loaded, it automatically downshifts one gear or even two gears at once. By not having to depress the clutch, the shifting time is reduced and therefore the truck does not miss a beat, it climbs with more power. This results in less strain on the engine and far fewer breakdowns than with manual gearboxes.

·        Automatic gearbox:

A truck with an automatic gearbox adapts the gears by itself. Automatic gearboxes are usually hydraulic, with hydraulic disc packs that are mechanically governed by pressure. However, the most modern ones operate electronically.

Among the advantages of this type of gearbox we find, mainly, comfort. Drivers do not need to be aware of adapting the gear to the speed, since they use only the accelerator and the brake, without the clutch.

 

    • Advantages of the automatic gearbox

Automatic gearboxes offer greater driving comfort. In addition, they break down much less than mechanical gearboxes and are nowadays, due to their popularity, readily available.

Moreover, contrary to popular belief, automatic gearboxes are not more dangerous than mechanical ones, nor can they lose control going downhill. They adapt to the required speed, braking (or using the intarder) when going downhill. Moreover, even without a clutch pedal, the driver can reduce speed with the brake.
