ZF Technology for Industrial ApplicationsProducts of Great Value.

Innovative and Custom-Made

In more than three decades, ZF has evolved into an expert for developing and manufacturing tailor-made driveline technology for Industrial Applications. Renowned manufacturers trust in our competence and product quality.

The focus of development and production activities is on servogearboxes for automation technology, two-stage manual drives for machine tools, as well as customized drives, for instance for printing machines or robotics applications. The range of innovative products covers low-play servogearboxes (ZF Servoplan), robust two-stage gearboxes (ZF Duoplan), as well as hysteresis applications that transfer torque without contact (ZF Tiratron).

Even under continuously high machine loads, ZF industrial drives work in a highly reliable and precise manner. Their size is so small and their weight so low that they can be smoothly integrated into the respective manufacturing concept. Low-scale maintenance efforts and longevity guarantee high availability.
