ZF launched several new innovations this week at MINExpo, including a next generation Redulus4F Industrial Gearbox Series and advanced serviceability solutions, based on the company’s unique ProVID Condition Monitoring System.
“Advancements in large-scale gearbox applications for the mining sector are critical as demands on equipment load, durability and performance continue to be driven higher and higher,” said Christoph Kainzbauer, head of product line industrial drives, ZF Group.
“Our complete portfolio of gearbox solutions demonstrates our extensive experience across many industries and how we’ve successfully applied it to mining and large construction.”
The latest Redulus4F gearboxes feature a flexible, compact design capable of creating more than 2,000 gearbox combinations, while delivering extended load capacity and advanced serviceability – all in one package. Based on a modular system, they provide a significant increase in torque density of up to 40% and enhanced flexibility for adapting required customer specifications.
GPT4F Next Generation Drive Gears, designed for mining applications and large construction equipment such as excavators and cranes, now offer increased torque density up to 10%, which enables higher robustness, supporting a longer service lifetime and reducing total cost of ownership.
ZF has also expanded its serviceability program, which now features four regional service centers, 33 service companies and more than 650 partners globally that can reliably and efficiently meet the needs of its mining customers.
