ZF – completion of the gearbox portfolio for mining applications and large construction machines

Since 1st December 2015 a total of 900 employees at the new ZF Industrieantriebe Witten GmbH have been reinforcing the world's leading engineering group in its Industrial Technology Division. The large gearbox section constitutes the new Business Unit ‘Industrial Drives’ with headquarters in Witten. The merger combines the expertise and the experience of both partners in the development and production of driveline technology.

ZF now has an unequalled, wide range of gearboxes for mining applications and large construction machines: Drive gearboxes with output torques of more than 2000 kNm for moving wheel-, track- or roller-driven machines with a weight of up to 800 tonnes. Swing gearboxes with a weight of up to eleven tonnes for positioning cranes with millimetre accuracy and for fast and reliable rotary movement on excavators. Winch gearboxes lift heavy components from high lifting heights and position them at a safe distance exactly on the intended spot. On large hydraulic excavators pump-distribution gearboxes simultaneously distribute power to many different hydraulic pumps.

ZF planetary gearboxes are characterized by their compact and space-saving construction and are extremely robust.

ZF will be presenting its expanded portfolio of gearboxes for mining applications and large construction machines at the ConExpo, South hall 4, booth S - 85029 from 7th to 11th of March 2017.
