Gearboxes for Mining Applicationsand Large Construction Machines

In opencast mines heavy equipment is in demand. That is because here thirty cubic metres of material can be loaded in one sweep or over 350 tonnes of load transported. Here, the giant machines used must move exactly, but delicately. The robust ZF gearboxes ensure that everything remains reliably in motion.

With Power:

ZF drive, swing and winch gearboxes take up the heaviest loads, they are extremely compact and facilitate precise machine control with high power transmission. ZF has an unequalled, wide range of gearboxes for mining applications and large construction machines:

  • Drive gearboxes for moving wheel, track or roller-driven machines with a weight up to 800 tonnes

  • Swing gearboxes for positioning cranes with millimetre accuracy and for a fast and reliable rotary movement on excavators

  • Winch gearboxes for lifting heavy components from high lifting heights and a safe distance exactly to the intended spot
    Catalogue ZF Winch Gears GPT-W
  • Pump distribution gearboxes with which many different hydraulic pumps can be driven simultaneously on large hydraulic excavators

ZF planetary drives for mining applications are characterised by their compact and space-saving construction and they are extremely resilient. We know what is really needed to obtain the optimum performance from your machines.
