The new ECOMIX II transmission is about 50 percent smaller and 24 percent lighter in comparison to previous models. This allows vehicle manufacturers more flexibility in design and makes assembly easier. The unit is designed for transport mixers up to 16m³ drum capacities and its max. input torque is 90,000 Nm. The compact design of the ECOMIX II offers a wide range of further advantages: Thanks to an exceptionally rugged bearing concept it was possible to significantly increase the output bearing strength, which leads to less sensitivity in off-road operation.
Due to the new bearing concept the installation angle does no longer depend on drum size and drum filling. Installation angles of up to 20 degrees are possible throughout. Furthermore, mechanic and acoustic decoupling of drum and vehicle frame leads to smooth running, improved driving comfort and noise reduction.
Service-friendliness has also been improved. The ECOMIX II is easily accessible due to its compact design. Lifetime oil filling does not only save oil changes, it also protects the environment. A cassette-type sealing is used instead of the previous sealing collar, which makes the transmission more robust and increases service life.
