Gearboxes for Industrial Systemsand Equipment

Tunnel boring machines up to 19 metres diameter and 32 tonnes applied pressure per cutting roller are only one example of many applications in the industrial field where ZF transmissions are employed. Here enormous forces are involved which signify huge challenges for personnel and machines. The reliability and robustness of ZF gearboxes particularly pays off here.

With Flexibility:

Thanks to a flexible kit system ZF industrial drives offer a widely varied product range. In this way the transmissions can be perfectly matched to your intended application. ZF industrial gearboxes can be supplied in the most varied versions:

  • Hydraulic or electrical drive
  • Power output through a hollow shaft, keyed shaft or splined shaft
  • Two or more planetary stages
  • Horizontal and vertical installation orientation
  • Mounted on feet, with a flange housing or as a slip-on version with torque support
  • Coaxial, offset or angled drive shaft arrangement

Due to the special treatment and processing of the gearwheels the transmissions operate extremely quietly and reliably. For example the power output pinion is ground after hardening to correct the meshing and to achieve optimum matching to the operating torque.
