From the beginning of 2019, ZF will start the local production of travel gearboxes for mining applications and large construction machines in Beijing for the Chinese market. With this approach, ZF offers fast reaction times, short distances, tested and certified quality according to ZF global standards, as well as the audited processes and customer support tailored to local needs.
Starting with the travel gearbox, Chinese customers will be offered a comprehensive product portfolio from local Beijing-production. ZF's local Service Center will also offer the complete range of services for our gearboxes including inspection – and maintenance works, repairs, spare parts, documentation and field service.
ZF has an unequalled, wide range of gearboxes for mining applications and large construction machines: Travel 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, space-saving construction and are extremely robust. ZF will be presenting its portfolio of gearboxes for mining applications and large construction machines at the Bauma China, hall N5, booth 531 from November 27th-30th, 2018.
