Half a million TraXon transmission systems have now rolled off ZF’s production lines in Friedrichshafen alone since it began there almost eight years ago.

The transmission system offers severalmany technological advantages such as top-level efficiency of up to 99.7%, lower fuel consumption, as well as strong design quality and reliability.

In addition, it features ZF’s innovative PreVision GPS shifting strategy for high energy savings. With these features, the TraXon Automated Manual Transmission (AMT) system delivers energy efficiency and value in terms of TCO (Total Cost of Ownership). Its digitaliszed package also enables predictive maintenance. Compared to a manual transmission, TraXon can thus reduce consumption by up to 8%.

“Passing the half-million systems mark in just one of our production facilities is a powerful achievement which further underlines ZF’s global technology systems leadership,” said Winfried Gründler who is responsible for the driveline systems product line with ZF’s Commercial Vehicle Solutions division.

“As a comprehensive supplier of intelligent mechanical systems, combining our deep transmission expertise as well as our advanced digital capabilities will ensure that vehicle manufacturers and fleet operators continue to gain real added value with TraXon, now and in the future,” he said.
