ZF is enhancing its portfolio of gearboxes and couplings/clutches for marine and offshore applications

ZF now has an unrivalled range of gearboxes for marine and offshore applications: Swing gearboxes with an output torque of up to 750,000 Nm (545,000 ft lb) and a weight of up to eleven tons for positioning offshore-cranes with millimeter accuracy. Winch gearboxes lift heavy components from high lifting heights and position them at a safe distance exactly on the intended spot. Specialized gearboxes for jack-up systems lift offshore platforms and work boats to the required heights. Highly elastic couplings and clutches dampen torsional vibrations and ensure smooth operation. Torsional stiff couplings ensure fast and reliable declutching where torsional vibrations in the power transmission system can be neglected.

ZF planetary gearboxes, couplings and clutches are characterized by their compact and space-saving design and are extremely resilient and robust.

ZF is presenting its expanded portfolio of gearboxes for marine and offshore applications to the experts at the OTC in Houston from May 01 – May 04, 2017. ZF booth location: Open area, booth 11515, 1200 sqft / 111 sqm
