At bauma in Munich, hall A4 booth 213/312, ZF is presenting the latest product highlights from April 11-17, 2016; ERGOPOWER Efficiency Package, the continuously variable construction machinery gear cPOWER as well as hybrid technology and electrification, to give a view into the future of working machines.

As a system supplier ZF focuses on the entire drive and combines advanced software features with transmissions and axles.
The focus of the ZF developers are:

  • Less fuel consumption
  • Increased productivity
  • Noise reduction
  • Easier to use
  • Increased driving comfort and safety

ZF Efficiency Package

For many years already, ZF driveline and chassis systems have proven themselves in meeting the challenges of the market. With the Efficiency Package, ZF consolidates its competence in the transmission, axle and software development, thus offering more than the sum of individual advantages. This approach makes it possible to reconcile the frequently conflicting demands for:

  • enhanced comfort
  • increased productivity
  • less consumption
  • reduced component wear

ZF the technological leader

Stepless into the future – ZF cPOWER

The fully powersplit, continuously variable technology benefits from the long-term experience gained in the off-highway sector and offers significant consumption benefits and productivity increases for the vehicle owner. cPOWER is a new technological benefit for off-highway machinery and allows for completely new drive concepts. Up to 25% less consumption, as well as up to 20% more efficiency underline all advantages of the continuously variable transmission in typical operating cycles that create new megatrends for working machines.

ZF offers hybrid technology

Comprising electric machines and complete hybrid systems all from one source. The ZF hybrid system is suitable for all ZF transmission forms and can be implemented for direct and separate transmission mounting. The ZF hybrid systems stand for a considerable reduction of consumption, an increase of work output and a significant reduction of exhaust emissions. Thanks to this innovation, operating costs of the vehicle owner have been significantly reduced. 

Electrification of attachments

The electrical drive is provided by a fluid-cooled three-phase asynchronous motor with a high power density and a following transmission stage. The motor is integrated in the wheel hub unit to save space. The system can also be optionally fitted with a wheel brake. The rated voltage is 400V. The motor power and drive torque are sufficient for most requirements in off-highway applications.

These new developments will extent the comprehensive portfolio of ZF in the field of transmissions and axles by one innovative drive solution.
