ZF is one of the world’s technology leaders in the area of driveline, chassis and safety technology for rail. It offers components and systems that make railway traffic more powerful without neglecting passenger safety and comfort.
Based on over 90 years of the Group’s experience, manufacturers and operators of rail vehicles can profit from innovative and sustainable solutions for the mobility of today and tomorrow.
Modern drive systems that contribute to saving fuel and increasing vehicles’ life cycles while reducing maintenance cycles are becoming more and more important. With EcoWorld, ZF has now combined these important features: a costefficient and fuel-saving powershift transmission for DMUs. The six-gear powershift transmission ZF EcoWorld features an integrated reversing function, which will be integrated directly in the transmission.
A newly developed wheelset gearbox completes ZF’s drive solution. The result is a new drive system that can be combined with a range of axle ratios. This makes it suitable for slow-speed operations as well as for fast rail vehicles in long-distance transport. At higher ratios, EcoWorld also handles steep gradient routes without difficulty.
