ZF unveils world first modular transmission

Coinciding with the brand’s 30th anniversary of doing business in Australia, ZF Services Australia has launched a new automatic transmission at the Brisbane Truck Show last week.

The new ZF TraXon’s modular design is said to be a world first and meant to provide the heavy vehicle market with a "more versatile and flexible" transmission solution.

“Feedback received across the four-day event was overwhelmingly positive, as the industry appreciated its compact and robust design and recognised TraXon as the highest transmission efficiency in its category, setting the new standard in terms of cost-effectiveness,” ZF said in the wash-up of the event.

According to ZF, the new TraXon product will gradually replace the iconic AS Tronic automatic transmission “over the coming years”.

By having both units on the company’s Brisbane Truck Show stand, ZF’s experienced team was able to provide hands-on demonstrations of the differences between the two units, the company pointed out.

“Our stand at the Brisbane Truck Show is a demonstration of our ongoing commitment, not just in original equipment but also in replacement parts and components,” commented Mark Sookias, Managing Director of ZF Services Australia.

“We always enjoy having a presence at the Brisbane Truck Show, and this year as we celebrate 30 years in Australia, it was all the more significant.”

Technical details on the Australian version of the new TraXon are yet to be released.
