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.
Thanks to a flexible kit system classic industrial drives Redulus GMH/GME or new series gearboxes Redulus4F offer a widely varied product range. This way the transmissions can be perfectly matched to your intended application. ZF planetary gearboxes can be supplied in a wide range of versions:
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.
