Single-stage axle-mounted gearbox

One detail innovation, many advantages

The single-stage ZF metro gearbox is optimally designed for little service effort, low life cycle costs, and a long product service life. These are advantages based on a special technical feature: While in conventional helical-toothed metro gearbox axial forces put stress on the bearings and reduce efficiency, two innovative tapered thrust washers in these gearbox prevent this effect.


  • Innovative tapered thrust discs provice the basis of longer product service life and higher efficiency
  • Extremely smooth and low gear noise at all operating speeds
  • Bearing temperature is only 2°C above oil sump temperature
  • Less assembly and maintenance work thanks to set-up and adjustment free bearing design with
  • wear-free labyrinth seals
  • Reduced life cycle costs
  • Reduced transport costs and logistic efforts thanks to the hollow shaft version
