ZF Celebrates 500,000th TraXon Transmission System Produced in Friedrichshafen
Friedrichshafen, Germany. ZF’s Commercial Vehicle Solutions (CVS) division has announced a major global production milestone with its leading TraXon transmission system for truck and coach applications. Half a million TraXon systems have now been manufactured in Friedrichshafen alone since production began there in 2014. A successful product for commercial vehicles, TraXon’s volume production further underlines vehicle manufacturers’ and fleet operators’ trust in the company's advanced systems expertise.
“Having begun production in Friedrichshafen in 2014, TraXon is now a globally produced success story offering next level transmission efficiency standards. 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. “Light, strong, and intelligent, TraXon’s groundbreaking technology is supporting growing worldwide customer demand for efficient systems and helping ensure they have the most advanced trucks on the road.”
“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,” added Gründler.
The transmission system offers many 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 digitalized package also enables predictive maintenance. Compared to a manual transmission, TraXon can thus reduce consumption by up to 8%.
As a result of these benefits, TraXon has secured several awards during production. This includes recently achieving the prestigious "Reliable and Efficient Transmission System 2022 Award" at the 7th "Discover Trust" awards ceremony in China. TraXon has also been recognized multiple times as a ‘Best Brand’ by the readers of Germany’s ETM publishing house.
Supporting many of the world’s leading Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs), TraXon is manufactured in Friedrichshafen (Germany), Jiaxing (China) and Sorocaba (Brazil). The plants work closely together, with pre-assembled transmissions from Friedrichshafen delivered, for example, to China where demand is strong and TraXon is helping ZF gain market share. In addition, a new assembly line for TraXon has recently commenced operation at ZF’s Sorocaba facility in Brazil. Providing flexibility to meet customer demand, it offers state-of-the-art production processes and rigorous testing to ensure the highest quality standards are maintained as well as providing global manufacturing flexibility.
Launched on January 1, 2022, ZF’s Commercial Vehicle Solutions (CVS) division has a mission to help shape the future of commercial transportation systems by being the preferred global technology partner to the commercial vehicle industry. Employing approximately 25,000 people across 28 countries, the division powerfully combines ZF’s commercial vehicle systems expertise, extensive technology portfolio and global operations, to innovate and supply components and advanced control systems for increasingly autonomous, connected, and electrified (ACE) vehicles. ZF CVS division unites ZF’s former Commercial Vehicle Technology and Commercial Vehicle Control Systems divisions, the latter being formed following ZF’s acquisition of WABCO in Spring 2020.
