Versatile Applications Our Product Range

Industrial gearboxes must perform well and at the same time be compact, precise and efficient. Reliability and safety are other aspects which need consideration. With its large transmissions for industrial applications and large mobile machines ZF is taking these requirements into account. Thanks to the modular construction of the transmission series an extremely wide spectrum of applications can be served – from roller mills and tunnelling machines to 800 tonnes mining excavators, just to mention some fields of application. A wide product range, combined with a high level of engineering expertise, decades of experience, the highest production quality and global services make ZF a valuable partner for applications in the industrial transmission sector.

ZF offers a complete range of planetary transmissions for a wide scope of applications and always perfectly matched to the intended purpose.

ZF Industrial Transmissions Product Overview

Drive Gearboxes GFA/GPT

Compact drive for track or wheel vehicles

Our Drive Gears are ideal driveline components for wheel, track or roller-driven mining applications and large construction machines. As a tumbler transmission in a crawler chassis or as a wheel transmission in a hub drive, they always provide the necessary tractive power in any terrain.

Winch Gearboxes GPT-W

Winder transmissions for all types of lifting equipment

Winch Gears supply the required tensile force in the cable for precise lifting and lowering of loads. Their extremely compact design makes them suitable for direct and therefore space-saving installation into the cable drum. The application range includes all types of lifting devices like mobile-, crawler-, railway-, ship-, shipyard and container cranes.

Swing Gearboxes GFB

Compact drive for excavators and cranes

Swing Gears from ZF are suitable for use in large excavators and all types of cranes, on land or at sea – everywhere, where a rotary movement with precise positioning is needed, and high acceleration and braking torques prevail.

Industrial Gearboxes GMH/GME

GMH industrial transmissions for industrial plants and cableways

ZF Industrial Gears are reliable drive components which have been proven under a wide range of application conditions. Due to a practicably designed kit system a wide range of transmission- and dimensional variants for a large number of different applications is available – like offshore platforms, apron feeders, sugar mills, ropeways, shredders, tunnel boring machines, seed presses, continuous casters, flood barriers and many more.

ZF Couplings and Clutches Experts for Marine Applications

Over one hundred years of experience in development and production paired with the know-how of ZF in driveline technology is the basis on which ZF Industrieantriebe Witten GmbH is able to offer a technically mature range of reliable couplings and clutches for general and heavy engineering as well as marine applications.

ZF Service for industrial gearboxes, couplings and clutches

Service Offers

Gearbox or coupling/clutch inspection and early detection of damage

Predictive maintenance of the gearbox resp. coupling or clutch increases the availability of your machine or plant and improves the efficiency in operation. Our qualified service technicians possess extensive experience in detecting damage at an early stage with the assistance of proven inspection programs and modern measuring- and testing equipment.


Our thorough knowledge of the gearbox resp. coupling/clutch designs ensures a flawless and cost-optimized repair. Overhaul and new production of single parts as well as regrinding of gear teeth are carried by us according to the original drawings. Prior to shipment, repaired gearboxes resp. coulings/clutches are tested according to strictest quality standards on our test benches and all results are recorded in a test protocol.

Spare parts

This service is characterized by speed, competence and world-wide efficient logistics. We provide original manufacturer's spare parts – even after the end of series production – as well as spare parts kits and conversion kits for existing equipment.

Documentation and support

Technical information and documentation sustainably ensure that all service activities are carried out properly. Spare-parts catalogues, operating instructions, repair manuals and diagnostic documentation are available.

Field service

Our qualified and experienced service technicians offer fast and world-wide support on site – including visual inspection, endoscopy, vibration analysis, repair and oil analysis.

ZF provides professional service in nearly every country worldwide. ZF Industrieantriebe Witten GmbH offers to exchange and repair large gearboxes, couplings and clutches which have been supplied in the past under the brand names of Lohmann & Stolterfoht, Mannesmann Rexroth or Bosch Rexroth.

Your Partner for Large Drive Units We Know What Really Matters

The Industrial Drives Business Unit has more than half a century of experience available in the manufacture of planetary transmissions for industrial applications. That is an indication of the quality and reliability and – together with the 100 years of transmission expertise from the ZF Group – it is also a guarantor for innovative technologies and drive concepts for the future.

The ZF engineering expertise provides support right from the first moment. Long before a complex component takes shape, we will have already carried out complicated calculations, such as those involving the finite element method (FEM). The expertise in development is supplemented by unequalled competence in dynamic simulation and testing. Through application-orientated provision of technologies and computation techniques, the testing period is the basis for our engineering to develop competitive and marketable products.

ZF controls the complete process of transmission manufacture. The process chain extends from the mechanical machining and heat treatment to the assembly and subsequent tests, painting and shipment. For us, perfect quality management not only implies the systematic planning and monitoring of quality features, but rather also the effort towards continual improvement – along the whole value creation chain.

We are responding to the growing importance of industry-specific solutions with market-orientated, internationally operating development centres. Another of ZF's strengths is our customer-specific engineering. At ZF customer support staff co-operate closely with their colleagues from development. The results are innovations which set global benchmarks and which impress our customers. Our product specialists are not only experts in the field of driveline technology, they are also familiar with the special features of the relevant applications.

ZF Industrieantriebe Witten GmbH Successor Company of the Former Lohmann + Stolterfoht GmbH

When ZF took over the large gear business from Bosch Rexroth in 2015, the heritage of Lohmann + Stolterfoht also went over to ZF. As successor company of the former Lohmann + Stolterfoht GmbH (L+S), ZF Industrieantriebe Witten GmbH today relies on the long years of experience in gearbox design and production and combines it with the transmission technology know-how from ZF.
ZF Industrieantriebe Witten GmbH is responsible for the Industrial Drives Business Unit and offers gearboxes for mining applications and large construction machines, industrial machinery and equipment, ropeway systems as well as gearboxes, couplings and clutches for marine and offshore applications.
